Last Wednesday, Abel Ferreira said in a press conference, after the win over Juazeirense, that Veiga’s importance remained in principle and in a no-ball game.

– What makes me happiest is not the dribbles, the way he plays with the ball, it’s not a penalty. He is an accomplished person, and when you have to go after him, he helps. The skills I realize he has, now the promise he has, the strong person he is … – reviews Abel.

Raphael Veiga is Palmeiras’ best player of the year, with 17 goals, considering the Club World Cup – a match valid for last year’s calendar and that does not include the club in statistics of the current season. The performance put the player in control of the average last year, as he scored 18 times in 2020 and 2021.

While he was brilliant at Palmeiras, Raphael Veiga has yet to manage coach Tite to give him a chance in the Brazilian squad. In the last called by the coach, the penultimate called before the World Cup, the midfielder left again. Through Verdão, Weverton player and midfielder Danilo has been called up.

And Palmeiras fans do not forgive. During the match against Juazeirense, in Londrina, Verdão fans cursed Tite and demanded that Veiga be called.

– I still have hope to Option. It was a dream, just like winning the Libertadores, winning the Copa do in Brasil. I did it all. I believe this one of the options will be taken as one. I will continue to work and do my job. Great listening (listening to the crowd). This shows that I am on the right track – says the midfielder.
