With competitiveness he says: “Hola-eta won’t develop in my sector”. He has it. At instances, he arrives stronger and fouls more durable as a result of he’s aggressive. For the coach and for a group like Corinthians, that is all we would like.

Tiago Nunes, who promised Fagner in 2020, additionally disagrees with the bad reputation. According to him, rival fans feed this example:

– I feel that is a label, primarily constructed by competitors. Fagner is an exemplary athlete in on a regular basis life, with glorious conduct in coaching.
