Gremio, tired of Luis Suárez: "This is a soap opera"

He Guild defeated Atlético Mineiro 1-0 this Saturday, with the Uruguayan star Luis Suarez in the stands while defining his future, on the sixteenth day of the Brazilian Championship. A goal from Ronald from a corner kick in the 11th minute was enough for the Tricolor Gaúcho to add the three points and snatch second place from Flamengo, who today did not go beyond a draw at home against América Mineiro (1-1).

The Porto Alegre team is ten points behind leader Botafogo, which this Sunday will be measured at home with Santos. With this defeat, Atlético Mineiro, led by former Brazilian coach Luiz Felipe Scolari, has gone seven league games without victory.

The Gremio coach, Renato Gaúcho, chose to leave Luis Suárez out of the squad, a decision that he will maintain until the negotiations between the striker and the board are resolved, according to what he said in statements to SporTV before the match. Gaucho said he was tired of the issue and expressed his wish for a prompt resolution of the “soap opera” around the continuity of the former Liverpool and FC Barcelona player.

Suárez, for his part, wanted to make his commitment to the club clear by going to the Arena do Gremio to watch the match against Mineiro live and, in the morning, going to the training center to continue treatment on his knee.

The Brazilian press assures, instead, that Suárez wants to leave the Gremio and join the ranks of Inter Miami, who has just signed the Argentine star Lionel Messi and other of his former teammates at FC Barcelona, ​​such as Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba.

Endrik, on the bench of Palmeiras

In another of this Saturday’s games, Palmeiras, with a goal from Colombian midfielder Richard Ríos, beat Fortaleza 3-1 and broke a streak of five league games without winning. Endrick, the young promise tied by Real Madrid, who turned 17 on Friday, sat on the bench throughout the match, without playing a single minute.

Flamengo and América Mineiro shared the points at the Maracana (1-1). The visitors scored first and Victor Hugo saved the furniture for Jorge Sampaoli’s team from a free kick taken by the Uruguayan Giorgian de Arrascaeta in injury time.
