Corinthians debuts in the South American against Racing do Uruguay

Right-back Fagner could reach a significant milestone this Tuesday, the date of Corinthians’ debut in the Copa Sudamericana. Timão faces Racing, in Montevideo, from 9:30 pm (Brasília time), in the first round of Group F.

A likely starter for António Oliveira’s team for this week’s clash, Fagner is one game away from reaching 550 matches with the Timão shirt. The full-back is the ninth athlete with the most games for the black and white club.

– It’s a life. A lot of time at the club, a lot of history, a lot of experience, a lot of learning, proud to experience this moment. It’s difficult for an outfield player to reach this mark, so I’m happy to reach this mark at Corinthians. I hope to get other brands later – he told “TV Corinthians”.

Timão embarked on Monday afternoon for Uruguay, hours after finishing his preparation with training at the CT.

It will be Corinthians’ first competitive game since March 14, the date of the victory over São Bernardo, in the second phase of the Copa do Brasil. Distancing causes anxiety.

– Anxiety is about putting into practice what we trained in the last few days, everything we did with António in those days, everything that the team has strengthened. Anxiety is about putting this into practice. We want to debut well, because it is an important competition for us during the year – added Fagner.

Fagner remembers important moments at Corinthians

Since March 14, Corinthians has had an interseason at CT Joaquim Grava, including a test: the 3-0 victory over Londrina, in a friendly played last week.

During this period, António Oliveira and the coaching staff took the opportunity to get closer to the squad, including a period of concentration, and carry out tactical work in order to adjust the team for the resumption of competitions.

The first real test will be this Tuesday, with the presence of names like Fagner and Paulinho. The latter overcame a ten-month absence and returned to the field in the duel against Londrina.
