Miranda did not travel with São Paulo for the game against Fortaleza. It has been used preferentially in the Copa Sudamericana and Copa do Brasil. He will hardly be on the field in the decisive game against Juventude, Thursday (12), for the knockout tournament.
Gabriel Neves went to Fortaleza and… He didn’t enter the field. He had played in the last match, against Everton, after seven games of absence.
Clearly, Miranda is the fourth option for the defense, behind Diego Costa, Arboleda and Leo Pelé.
Clearly, Gabriel Neves is the fourth option as a steering wheel. He’s behind Colorado and Pablo Maia. And Igor Gomes.
The situation for them will get worse.
São Paulo is looking for a new defender. One of the options is Igor Rabello. And Luan, when he recovers, will be ahead of Neves.
The possibility of staying with them is small. São Paulo needs to choose between Colorado and Neves. And the Colombian is ahead in Ceni’s opinion.
Miranda’s contract ends and the salary is high. High? Not so much, according to your resume. But the performance has not been good. It hardly stays.
What can help them is the possibility that the squad will decrease with the departure of some players. Diego Costa has played very well and can leave, although it is rare for Europe to hire a defender. Igor Gomes also improved a lot and still hasn’t renewed his contract.
It is the best chance for Miranda and Gabriel Neves not to have to look for a job at the end of the year.
