– It is a difficult stage. Corinthians needs unity and the players need to help each other at this moment. It's not just one person's responsibility. The responsibility lies with everyone. The goalkeeper is obligated to defend and not score any goals. So everything must be divided. We have already gone through a difficult situation when we were left without titles and we overcame it with unity. This is what Corinthians needs – said Vladimir during a celebratory match played in Vinhedo, inside Sao Paulo, this weekend.

Also present at the match, former midfielder Basilio, Vladimir's contemporary and scorer of Sao Paulo's historic title goal in 1977, which took Corinthians out for almost 23 years without being a champion, backed his support for Cassio.

– All we have to do is comment on what we can strive for, which is transcendence. Corinth could get out of this situation. We note that not everything that is bad lasts forever. This will pass and Corinthians will even emerge to fight for the Copa Libertadores. Cassio is not responsible for the lack of goals, because he does not even have a penalty kick to take.

Another former Corinthians player who was present at the match in Finhedo and spoke about Caio's situation is former striker Donizetti Pantera:

Tension on and off the field

Corinthians is still without a win or scoring any goals in the Brazilian League, and is trying to achieve its first victory to avoid a bigger crisis with the possibility of ending the round in last place. Timao opens the round in second-to-last place with just one point in three rounds.

The battle against relegation until the final rounds of last year's Brazilian league exacerbated the club's poor start to this year's tournament. Moreover, Paulistao's exclusion in the first stage raises doubts about the restructuring of the team proposed by the current board.

On Thursday, the leaders already organized in Parque São Jorge met with President Augusto Melo and Marketing Supervisor Sergio Mora, to seek clarification on the black and white management.

This Monday, the deliberative board will vote on the club's accounts for the 2023 balance sheet, adding to the tension behind the scenes.
