Abel Ferreira, who reportedly has an offer from Al-Ittihad, is reluctant to extend his contract with Palmeiras, explaining that in the three years he has been in Brazil, he has gone through difficult times!
Abel Ferreira’s Palmeiras scored five wins in six matches in the last period, managing to catch Botafogo at the top of the Brazilian league standings.
The former PAOK coach recently completed three years in Brazil having already won 6 titles. Twice the Copa Libertadores, 1 championship, 2 Brazilian Cups, 1 Paulista Regional Championship and 1 Recopa Sudamericana.
As noted by 44long time coach, the stress and anxiety for positive results had the consequence of going through difficult times with his health.
“I went through difficult times here with my health, not only physically, but also psychologically. So I should be very careful what I wish for. Football doesn’t make you healthy. If you have doubts, see how I was three years ago and how I am now.”
It is worth noting that Abel Ferreira is a candidate for the technical leadership of Karim Benzema’s Al Ittihad, after the departure of Nuno Espirito Santo.
