This Tuesday, after two days off, the players re-introduced themselves to the coach Jesualdo Ferreira, starting the preparation for the classic against the Palm Trees, Saturday, in Pacaembu, for the eighth round of the Paulista championship.
The recent poor results have put the Portuguese coach under pressure at the beginning of his job at the head of the club. And Jesualdo took advantage of this Tuesday’s activity to have a brief conversation with the cast before the start of the warm-up for the activity, which was closed to the press.
Who was in the field was Marinho. The striker suffered a fracture in his left foot at Santos’ debut in Paulistão, the 0-0 draw with Bragantino, and he no longer played for the team in 2020. But this Monday he went to the field for the first time since the injury, starting to carry out transition work.
However, for the short time until the classic, Marinho should not be able to return to the team against Palmeiras, because first he will need to do ball work. Following the duel for Paulistão, Santos will debut in the Copa Libertadores. It will be next Tuesday, against Defensa y Justicia, from Argentina, away from home.
In preparation for the classic against Palmeiras, Santos will return to training this Wednesday, in two periods, in activities scheduled for 10 am and 4 pm.
