Corinthians utilizes FIFA Data to completely overhaul medical department


Corinthians took advantage of the Data-FIFA period not only to adjust to Mano Menezes’ tactical scheme, but also to “zero out” its medical department. Thus, the coach has almost the entire black and white squad at his disposal, aiming to finally distance himself from the relegation zone of the Brazilian Championship.

During the Data-Fifa break, Corinthians managed to release striker Giovane, who began his physical transition to the pitch. So, the only absence is midfielder Paulinho. The player, who underwent surgery on the anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee in June, continues in the recovery process. The midfielder continues to undergo physiotherapy work in CT and will only return in 2024.

Fresh from DM, Giovane suffered a rupture of the anterior tendon in his left thigh during training in September. In addition to him, midfielder Renato Augusto, who was suffering from a muscle problem in his calf, managed to recover and should be able to play this Thursday, when Timão faces Fluminense, at Maracanã.

Mano Menezes will have another training session, this Wednesday morning (18), to make the final adjustments at Corinthians. The team is in 14th place, with 31 points, four less than Vasco, the first team in the relegation zone. Thus, a triumph against Fluminense appears to be crucial for Timão’s aspirations in the competition.
