In addition to losing to the last placed Brasileirão, relegated a few rounds ago, Tricolor showed poor football, showing its worst version of the season
Free falling in Brazilian championship, São Paulo was defeated 1-0 to Botafogo, on the night of last Monday, 22, in Engenhão, in Rio de Janeiro. In addition to losing to the last placed player in the tournament, demoted a few rounds ago, Tricolor presented poor football, showing its worst version of the season. In the program “Fim de Jogo”, Young Pan Group, the commentator Flavio Prado didn’t skimp on criticism of the team that may even be out of the group stage next Copa Libertadores de América.
“Regardless of the payroll, which is gigantic, what we have to charge is performance. It’s absurd! Can not! There is nothing to justify such a poor performance. Look, I can’t understand. It seems that the players were on strike, but then they hinder their own work. It is a mixture of incompetence and lack of confidence. And it is a problem that we have seen for some time. In other words, it is time for them to solve this problem or change their profession. They do not act with courage. They can’t do anything else, ”said Flavio Prado.
Now, São Paulo will need to win the Flamengo, next Thursday, 25, at Morumbi, to guarantee his place in the group stage at Libertadores 2021. If he loses, the São Paulo team is in danger of being overtaken by Fluminense, fall to fifth position and be at the mercy of the final result of the Brazil’s Cup – a victory for Grêmio would place the team in the preliminary phase of the continental tournament.
