Renato Augusto left the Nabi Abi Chedid stadium with a sling on his left arm to immobilize his shoulder. The midfielder was injured in a dispute with Matheus Fernandes at the end of Corinthians’ 1-0 defeat to Bragantino and will undergo tests this Monday.
– I went to put my arm on the ground to support him, I think Matheus (Fernandes, Bragantino midfielder) ended up falling on top of me, I felt a crack in my shoulder, but we’ll see how he goes these days. I hope that in two days I will be fine – said the number 8.

– I took the medication, I hope that in two days I will be fine, but we will analyze it again tomorrow (Monday) calmly to find out exactly what happened – he added.
Technical leadership in the Corinthians squad, Renato Augusto is going through a moment of uncertainty, as his contract expires in December, and discussions about renewal should only take place after Timão is in a more comfortable position in the table.
Focused on achieving the necessary points to exclude any risk of relegation, the 35-year-old midfielder said he was experiencing an unusual situation in his career.

– You have a contract until the end of the year and you need to honor the shirt you wear until the end of the year, regardless of what happens, whether you renew or not. We have to be mature about this, it’s the first time in my career that I’m close to the end of my contract. Something new for me, but nothing that changes my thinking about the game – he declared.
– I don’t want to think about anything until we get rid of it, resolve our situation. At the moment it’s not my objective right now (listening to proposals from other clubs).
With 40 points, Corinthians is 13th in the Brasileirão, six points behind Vasco, the first team within the relegation zone and which plays on Monday against Botafogo.
Timão’s next game will be Thursday, against Atlético-MG, at Neo Química Arena.
