Striker Neymar was one of the main attractions leading up to the final between Santos and Palmeiras, in the Campeonato Paulista. Peixe won the duel 1-0 and took advantage for the return game, next Sunday (7), at Allianz Parque.

The player entered the field shortly before the two teams, tasked with taking the Paulistão cup to the starting position. He was accompanied by Pepe and Clodoaldo, historical idols of Santos.

The participation of the Santos idol was a strategy previously thought out by Peixe’s board and technical committee. Fábio Carille’s idea was to use Neymar as an element to create an even more vibrant atmosphere among the Santos fans present in Vila Belmiro.

“He’s there (in the locker room). He is a very big man in world football. He talks a lot, criticizes himself, but it’s no use, he’s a great, different. Doing what he did here at Santos, at Barcelona, ​​at PSG, in Saudi… it’s different. When I found out, I liked the idea of ​​burning down the stadium. I didn’t see him coming in with the cup, but I imagine the party. He passed through the locker room very quickly, and I preferred it that way. I had an experience in 2017, a game against Ponte Preta in Campinas, Ronaldo appeared at prayer and left. He’s a guy who moves, he’s an idol, a winner, but his presence is very important. In the field were Pepe and Clodoaldo, what stories, what generations. This enhances the party and motivates us and the fans”, said Carille, at a press conference.

Now, the atmosphere in the stands tends to be adverse for Santos. The team returns to the field next Sunday (7) to face Palmeiras at Allianz Parque. In the stands, only fans of the Alviverde club.
