Collective standard. Manu and his committee arrived at the end of last month and have led the team on just three occasions, but they have already discovered one of the black and white issues: a lack of standards. The coach stressed that one of his main goals at Data FIFA is precisely to fix collective matters before correcting individual problems.
Defense line. Another problem that causes headaches for fans concerns the defenders and full-backs. Under the leadership of the new committee, Corinthians has not yet replicated its defense in the lineup, whether due to technical choices, suspensions or injuries. Amid the turmoil, Fabio Santos announced his retirement at the end of the season, Gil was questioned again and Bruno Mendes left last weekend’s match in pain. In fact, the break could define the starting four ahead of Cassio.
Partner Yuri Alberto. Since the departure of Roger Guedes, the number 9 has played with different attacking colleagues in black and white, but none of them have proven themselves: in recent weeks, the team has already played with wingers (such as Romero and Mosquito) and with young players. Playing behind Youri (like Wesley and Pedro). The training period is the perfect time for Manu to choose a new striker partner.
Physicist Renato Augusto. FIFA data is crucial for the 35-year-old midfielder, who has become Corinthians’ thermometer this season and has suffered wear and tear due to a heavy sequence of matches. 10 days without official matches are necessary for the committee to return Renato to 100% physical condition and complete the season without having to release him from some obligations.
