At the end of the Brazilian Super Cup, with Palmeiras led by Abel Ferreira, beating Flamengo led by Vitor Pereira 4-3, the atmosphere differed between the Portuguese coaches.
“In my opinion, it was one of the best matches I’ve played since I was in South America. We conceded a goal against the flow of play, in the first half, but our team showed great mental strength throughout the game. We were the fair winners. Congratulations to my team. Two years ago we lost this trophy and today we have come to rescue what we lost two years ago, ”proclaimed Abel Ferreira.
Vitor Pereira’s speech focused on arbitration complaints and the need to make adjustments in the team: “Their fourth goal was irregular, according to the information I have. I note the attitude of the players, because they always wanted to change the outcome. Twice we were late and they tried to score. In the second half we could have scored 4-3 when the game was tied, but then we conceded. We had mistakes defensively and we have to improve from a defensive point of view, we have to be more consistent. I don’t see a team [Flamengo] Very strong physically. The most physically creative are not strong players. We often feel that we were not in good shape physically, but I think we were not very good tactically in the first half. And because we did not keep the ball, we entered a more physical Palmeiras match, and they are better than us in it.
