THE BALLOON – Controversy with new contract for Abel Ferreira (Palmeiras)

Once the mystery that dragged on for a long time solved, Abel Ferreira accepted the invitation addressed to him by Palmeiras and extended his contract until the end of 2024. According to the Brazilian press, the agreement reached required a big effort on the part of from a financial point of view of the São Paulo club, to the point of hoisting the title of “biggest contract in the history of South American football coaches”.

However, Palmeiras was quick to deny some rumors about the Portuguese coach’s salary – Globoesporte, for example, clocked in at €6.7m per season.

“The Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras is going public to contest, in a vehement way, the reports published this Saturday evening by the GE and UOL websites with the supposed annual amounts that will be paid to our coach Abel Ferreira. The material does not correspond to reality. We deeply regret that part of the press still plays the role of spreading misleading and irresponsible information to the public,” Verdão wrote on social media.

Globoesporte, however, published the reaction of the Palmeirense emblem, but without failing to reinforce the veracity of the data in its news.
