The coach has a tempting offer from Qatar
Palmeiras wants to have Abel Ferreira in 2024. The board will hold a meeting with the coach this Friday, according to GE. The coach will release a report in which he analyzes the entire season and what will be needed for next year, then the club will take the opportunity to discuss the coach’s future.
Abel has a contract with Palmeiras until the end of 2024, but he hasn’t actually committed to staying for next season. It is worth mentioning that he has the polls of Al-Sadd, of Qatar, who want to make him the highest paid coach in the world.
The plan of the Palmeiras board of directors, led by Leila, is to have the coach in 2024, and to achieve this the club is willing to offer everything necessary, including a salary increase for Abel and his assistants.
With a contract until 2024, the club already admits that the Portuguese will not remain in Leila Pereira’s next management until 2027, but considers the “remaining” of Abel Ferreira fundamental who is already following the planning led by the same coach.
– On Friday (the report) will be delivered to the management and from that moment I will go on holiday. There is a meeting to schedule and we can talk about the year, what awaits us, but I can’t deny this either: Brazilian football is very tiring at all levels. I love Palmeiras. I am extremely grateful to Brazilian football, but especially to Palmeiras. Nobody wins alone and I was lucky enough to find an organized club with all the resources to give my best – said Abel.
A few days ago the topic of Abel’s possible departure attracted attention. Doubts also moved behind the scenes in Belo Horizonte, for the last round of the Brazilian Championship. While waiting for the title, members of the delegation were waiting for a signal from Abel, who until then had not dealt with the board, much less the interest of the Qatari team, according to GE.
Leila opened up and reinforced her desire to be able to count on the coach next season and that she would feel surprised if he announced his departure now.
– It will be a surprise for me (if Abel decides to leave). Given that we have a contract until December 2024, I understand that Abel is very happy at Palmeiras, with all the structure that we make available to him, it would be a surprise for me. He has a contract and is a very serious professional. I believe he will keep this contract until December 2024 (…) One thing the fans can be sure of: I hope Abel stays at Palmeiras for a long time. And I will do everything possible and impossible – said Leila.
On Friday, when he delivers the report, Abel will already express what the club will have to do for 2024, regarding reinforcements in which positions, who can leave and who can be exchanged, for example, according to the portal.
