Neto reveals unexpected measure by Leila Pereira at Palmeiras
During the program Os Donos da Bola, on Rádio Bandeirantes, this Thursday (22), the presenter and commentator Neto brought the information that in addition to seeking to implement facial recognition to avoid currency exchange in Palmeiras games, the president must also cut the tickets that players usually receive for matches at Allianz Parque.
“I know something there. I learned that Leila… each player has four to five tickets (available). Looks like it’s going to cut it there. A friend of mine who told me. By the way, this friend is a counselor at Palmeiras. I think they’re going to take the tickets and it’s going to be all facial. There won’t be this problem with the scalpers anymore… it’s going to be all facial and it’s going to stop giving out the five tickets to the players. I don’t know if it’s five or four, but it won’t give more tickets to the ballers”, he said.
Coach Abel Ferreira took advantage of the period without games this week, since the team will only have a commitment next Wednesday, and guided a training game this Thursday morning (22), at the Football Academy.
