In addition, Corinthians only scored nine goals when they were on the field, which illustrates an average of less than one goal per game.
Jemerson also has good numbers in the Paulista Championship this year. According to Footstats, the defender has eight tackles and 44 hits in the competition, placing third in this last item among all players. He also showed quality in the attack and scored his first goal for the club in the victory against Salgueiro by 3-0.

Corinthians has been negotiating the renewal of the bond, but may have problems paying the defender’s salaries. , who was hired from Monaco-FRA.
In this scenario, the fan remains to enjoy while Jemerson defends the black and white colors. In addition, coach Vagner Mancini will need to look at other options of the team during the second half to maintain the defensive solidity acquired with shirt 3.
