Since Ronaldo bought the Cruzeiro, the club in which he made his debut, the institution’s scene has been changing and taking new directions. The new owner decided to change coach, let some players go and the Belo Horizonte fans expressed their discontent this Thursday through a mobilization.
One of the first decisions he made was to modify the technician. Given this, Ronaldo decided to hire Paulo Pezzolano, the Uruguayan who at the time had sounded for Talleres de Córdoba. After firing Vanderlei Luxemburg, who failed to promote Cruzeiro this year, they bet on the former Pachuca coach of Mexico and dream of the team being back in the top flight.
Another modification was end the contract of Sidnei, the central defender who had decided to terminate his link with Real Betis to join the Brazilian team. Even so, from the institution it became very difficult to continue paying the salary and they decided to let it go, which unleashed a complex legal situation that has not yet been resolved.
Third, the leadership He decided not to renew Fábio, the goalkeeper and figure of the team. It turns out that Fábio Deivson Lopes Maciel is a symbol of Celeste: he has accumulated more than 970 games since he became the owner of the team’s goal, in the 2005 season. However, the new CD made the decision not to extend the footballer’s bond, who in September he turned 41 years old.
Through a statement on the networks, Cruzeiro justified the decision to put an end to Fabio’s cycle due to the financial problems suffered by the institution, which cannot make large expenses despite the arrival of Ronaldo. For his part, the archer tweeted just two words: “Gratitude and pain.”
All these circumstances were what led the fans to demonstrate on Thursday at the door of the club and it will be necessary to see how it manages to calm the anger of the fans. Ronaldo’s goal is to take Cruzeiro to the top, but for that it is also necessary to keep his fans happy and the results will tell whether his decisions were correct or not.
