Left-back Fábio Santos guaranteed Corinthians’ victory over Atlético-MG, in a comeback, at Mineirão: “The team knows how to play big games”

Fábio Santos resolved and secured the victory of the Corinthians over the Atlético-MG, in a comeback, this Sunday, 24th. In a duel valid for the 19th round of the Brazilian Championship, the left-back scored two goals from Timão at Mineirão. With the triumph by 2 to 1, the São Paulo team maintained the vice-leadership of the classification table.

In conversation with the broadcast of “Premiere”, still on the pitch, the experienced player highlighted that the Corinthians from the technician Victor Pereira “knows how to play big games”. Despite the important victory away from home, the side pointed out some flaws in the team and warned of some necessary changes in the offensive sector.

“We have a very competitive team, we need to hurt the opponent more offensively and have more alternatives from the middle to the front. We are defending and competing well, little by little we are creating an identity, but we have a strong team. The team knows how to play big games, we have given a positive and important response because we will have one decision after another”, said the side.

“I feel very good physically, I joke with the ‘guys’ that after a certain age we start to be more careful. Since then I’ve become even more professional, not that it wasn’t in the old days, but Vítor’s rotation has helped me a lot and I always arrive fresh in the matches. I’m very satisfied with my season, not just for me, but for the season and for the group, I think that way we have a great chance of reaching the end of the season fighting for titles.” said in another passage.

Fábio also spoke about the moment at Corinthians: “I played with the boys who played with me for almost five years here at Galo, I’m not a guy who gets into the area a lot. It was a magical night, one that will be marked in my career”, completed the 37-year-old player.

As a result, the team Victor Pereira reached 35 points and regained the vice-leadership of the leaderboard, which was provisionally with the Fluminense. Timão returns to the field next Saturday, 30th, at 19:00 (Brasília time), when it receives the Botafogoat Neo Química Arena, for the 20th round of the Brazilian Championship.
