Fernando Diniz gets angry with question after draw

After drawing with Internacional, in the Libertadores semi-final, Fluminense coach Fernando Diniz was furious with a question asked at a press conference

After the draw against Internationalon the way to the semi-finals of the Copa Libertadores, the coach of Fluminense, Fernando Diniz held a press conference and demonstrated that he did not like one of the questions asked at the time. Furthermore, the fact that the reporter explained his question again before the end of the commander’s speech was also annoying.

The question in question was about why the coach didn’t place a full-back immediately after the starter, Samuel Xavier, being kicked out of the game. In his response, Diniz already stated that it was very easy to question this because the draw happened shortly after, but he had no regrets about his action.

It’s such an easy question to ask, but without depth. What does the goal have to do with the non-entry of a full-back? The defense was not disappointed. The guy (Renê) crossed a ball and (Hugo Mallo) anticipated it. Arias went there [lateral] because there were two minutes left, the game was already over. Did you think it was more coherent to play a cold player? It’s a question about the result, what happened. If the goal hadn’t been scored, you wouldn’t ask. Do you want to discuss or do you want to wait for me to respond? If you want to discuss, we discuss. You ask the question and want to debate it“, shouted the coach.

After suffering a draw, Tricolor still saw the opponent turn the match to 2-1 in the second half, but managed to seek a draw with one less, counting on the star of Germán Cano. With that, the decision was made for the return, in Beira Rio, where any new draw takes the dispute to penalties and whoever wins will be a finalist in the competition.
