T-shirt 30 rated the accusation as unfair – revealing that it had purchased equipment, fruit and even bathrooms for the club. After the publications, he was reprimanded by Rubro-negro in a meeting with the board of directors and coach Gustavo Florentín – explains Leão’s vice president of football, Nelo Campos.
– We will not be guided by social networks. Unfortunately, Thiago got it wrong, we talked to him. He was defending himself by attacking the club. Talk about something that happened with the previous administration. He revealed the name of the sport, he knows he was wrong, but nothing (generates) punishment. He went to defend himself against the charge. He realized it, we talked to him but that’s it – he explains.

Even Thiago Neves came close to leaving the sport just over two months ago. But it ended up agreeing to stay with the arrival of a new board of directors. This time around, the prospect of separation did not pass through the talks, according to Nilo Campos.
– There was none of that. He should train normally – he explains.
Even the possibility of punishment is ruled out by the cum. This season, Sport have even implemented disciplinary measures for centre-forward Mikael (for refusing to train) and right-back Patrick (after commemorating a goal with an obscene gesture against Corinthians). But in both cases, the club was led by another board and with former coach Umberto Lozer.
Do you remember the last goal that Sport scored in the first division?
Thus, the talks were nothing more than agreement on positions. This explains Nelo Campos, while also enhancing the environmental conditions of Ilha do Retiro.
– I suggested that it should not be based on a private social network without any repercussions. It was absolutely baseless. The team is doing well, it’s growing. There was no result we were expecting, but there is no shortage of work, no shortage of commitment. We work more than we used to. It was just a tweet that profited from the negative results, and Tiago got it wrong when he went to speak. Business without fallout has become gigantic.
With Thiago Neves available for this round of Brazilian nationals, Sport will face Atlético MG, at 7pm on Saturday, in Mineirao. Robro-Negro occupies the penultimate position in the standings and has 17 points – five points behind the first team outside the relegation zone.
