Ceni admits poor performance in the defeat to Bahia and already calls up Calleri to start against Fortaleza | Sao Paulo

– We try to do our best for São Paulo, and thus get the best results from the athlete. I think we played less overall than the last games. Against Bragantino we lost and played well. “We lost today and we couldn’t have had the same intensity as the last four matches,” Ceni said after the match.

The coach explained why he continued with the plan with three defenders who worked in the victory over Internacional, and added that the striker will likely use Calleri as a start next Wednesday against Fortaleza in Ceará.

– I didn’t have Calleri yet, he’s back from injury, he should start playing in the next match, but for this match we picked Luciano and Rigoni knowing they were both suspended. The team was consistent with three defenders. In addition, there were three attackers who were not physically able to withstand in the 90th minute.

The coach criticized the refereeing. It quoted video referee Wagner Reway, who suggested a penalty for Miranda in the first half, but was ignored by referee Savio Pereira Sampaio, and also complained about the error that led to Bahia’s goal being scored in the second half:

– Wagner Reway attempted to define the game by invoking a penalty that it is impossible for anyone to contact, to disrupt the game. Then science will be able to define the game, and I’d like to understand where Leo’s lack lies in this movement. You always face all the difficulties, from arbitration errors to our mistakes, which we try to correct.

Ceni avoided setting expectations for the rating of Sao Paulo, currently in the 14th place, with 37 points.

– The result is causing public concern, I will not analyze one sector or the other, this is not the time. It’s time to finish with Sao Paulo in the best possible position this year. We will have tough matches and there is no point in doing individual or group analysis.

It leaves Sao Paulo Salvador directly for Fortaleza on Monday. Then, on Sunday, the team receives Flamengo in Morumbi. Three days later, he encounters Palmeiras at the Allianz Parque.

Rigoni, who is suspended, will embezzle against Fortaleza, as well as Arboleda, who has been called up by the Ecuadorian national team, will also not be available against Flamengo, and possibly against Palmeiras.
