In the Copa Brasil, Grêmio reached the fifth consecutive game without a win. Today (27), a goalless draw with Fortaleza in Porto Alegre extended the team’s bad phase. But after the match, Football Executive Director Diego Seri ruled out the resignation of Thiago Nunes. In the words of the manager, now is the time to give stability to the coach.
Grêmio has two points in five matches played in Brazil. The two matches against Flamengo for the second round and Cuiaba, which are valid for the fifth round, have been postponed and still no date has been set.
“I won’t even touch this topic because it’s not a topic for our discussions,” said Diego Seri. “We were talking about progress at work.” “We have to create stability in the cast and delegation until we get to the results we need,” he added.
Grêmio lost the three opening matches of the Brazilian Championship, against Ceará, Athletico-PR and Sport. After that, they tied with Santos in Porto Alegre and have now moved from zero to zero with Fortaleza. “The fans, and even the press, not being able to follow up every day, might be wondering why the result isn’t showing up. But I can guarantee that the work has been done very well,” Siri stated.
“I’ve been following the work of the technical committee for years and I know what I’m talking about, the level of the work. I’m sure the good relationship and the leadership of the group with Thiago. Athletes buy ideas and they try. Grêmio is not where it should be, things are not as good as they should be. But everything else gives us confidence. And calm.
Grêmio returns to the field against Juventus, on Wednesday (30), away from home, in a match valid for the eighth round of the Brazilian championship.
