In August 2022, on a Friday, the Glorious also surprised fans by announcing the loan of Erison to pay Estorilyou Portugal.

The club’s top scorer of the season 15 I stumble 34 matches,’The bullleft for Portugal and left part of the alvinegros without understanding very well, since the conclusion of the agreement took place on the eve of the Derby with flamenco and the number 89 shirt was the industry’s first option.

In a bid to thunder more game time and striker time, negotiation became a meme theme in the coach’s press conference Luis Castrowho drew in question the number 9 jersey requests at the time to corroborate the initiative.

« You can’t have two truths. We can’t have the truth that a month ago you (the press) said it was good to hire a 9 and today the truth is already different. Intellectual honesty must be part of us. It’s true that a month ago we said that we needed a 9, that Erison didn’t produce, they didn’t have this, that… It was the analysis. The truth is that they have arrived Tiquinho Soares e Junior SantosWe have the Matheus Nascimento and Erison. A decision had to be made. Four nines for a team is too much for any team in the world.

“I had to make a lot of unpopular decisions. I loaned Erison when he had scored 15 goals in the year. I knew that I was going to arrive, that he would be on the bench and that he would not evolve, both for his career and to bring resources to the club later. I am not arrogant, I know that I will make decisions that may later turn out to be wrong.. The only two ways to fight for titles right now is if we spend a lot of money that we don’t have now or if we build a sustainable future bit by bit,” John Textor said live on Tuesday. last (24), even before the negotiation for Jeffinho to go public.
