Denilson praises Cruzeiro’s rookie Matthews Pereira

Cruzeiro’s main player, attacking midfielder Matheus Pereira, is going through a fantastic phase. This Thursday (13), the heavenly goalkeeper scored one goal and assisted another in a 2-1 win over Cuiaba, in the eighth round of the Brazilian League. The performance received praise from Denilson, the Brazilian national team’s world champion.

“Mattheus Pereira dominates Cruzeiro’s midfield, right, what a phase he’s in!”, the Band no X presenter previously wrote on Twitter.

Despite the permanency announcements, Cruzeiro has not yet announced the athlete’s continuity. Matheus Pereira had a contract with Al Hilal until the end of June 2026. Earlier, upon his arrival at Mineirão, Eduardo Malouf, coach of the No. 10 team, stated: “Everything is fine. Let’s wait a little while. It’s going to work, it’s going to work.”

In recent days, the renewal “series” has gained new chapters and has caused concern among fans due to the delay in signing the new contract. Matheus Pereira’s stay is a priority for Pedro Lourenco’s management at the helm of the Celeste Football Association (SAF).
