Positioned in the attack command, Ron was one of the protagonists of the victory over Defensa y Justicia, reached on Wednesday night by Recopa. Scoring the first goal for Palmeiras in Argentina, the striker made himself available to coach Abel Ferreira to perform the role on new occasions.
With Luiz Adriano vetoed by covid-19, the Portuguese decided to centralize Ron, completing the offensive line with Breno Lopes and Willian. In the first half, after receiving from Willian, Ron surpassed Meza and defined precisely with Unsain, as a good center forward.
“I’m here to help the team in the best possible way. Regardless of the role, we go in to give our best. As the teacher always says, we have to do our best, regardless of anything. If he puts me to play even on the sideline, I’ll try to do my best, “said Ron.
Abel Ferreira considers Luiz Adriano the only professional striker in the squad and wants to have at least three options for the sector. Palmeiras even made proposals for names like Rafael Santos Borré and Valentin Castellanos, but have been finding it difficult to sign, which could give Ron new chances in the position.
“Rony is a player who can do this function, with different characteristics. As he said, if he needs a side, he is available. It is these players that Palmeiras need, who put the collective interests above the individual ones”, praised Abel Ferreira.
In addition to a striker, the Portuguese coach also wants to hire a forward, especially if he has to use Ron in the attack command more often. Palmeiras presented a proposal by southpaw Ademir, but still has not convinced América-MG.
