We have Caio, which is not listed, but works with us. Marquinhos helped us especially when he got into the second half, he got up more in the last 20, 30 minutes. When the game started, it didn’t do well, “Ceni said.
“It recomposes, scores, goes deep. You get different choices than Alisson, Sara, Igor Gomes, who have a contest. Let’s talk and see what the potential is, if there is a way out. I hear rumors, I read things, I see that there is an expectation that he will leave São Paulo. “, he concluded.
