Presented this Friday, 28th, as a new reinforcement of the Corinthians for 2022, the defender Robson Bamboo made a slip and said that returning to Brazil was “a step back” in his career. The defender, who has a contract with the Nice, from France, until 2025, was loaned by the French team to Corinthians and seeks to regain space in competitive teams after suffering a serious injury. “I’m close to my family. I’ve always dreamed of playing in European football, it’s not just my dream, but that of so many other youngsters. Whenever we end up taking this step back, many times we think and go through many things in our head, but I am calm about it. The most important thing is to be happy with the decision I made, I’m happy to be close to my family. I was hugged here and I will face this adventure in the best possible way”, said Bambu during his presentation at the Parque São Jorge club.
Bambu’s speech was contested by fans on social media, who criticized the defender’s statement. However, during the press conference, the defender reiterated that he was happy to defend Corinthians and that he wants to compete for the starting position in the team, which already has Gil, Raul Gustavo, João Victor and Bruno Melo in the position. “Corinthians is an institution that I respect a lot and I am very happy to be here. Sometimes we go through difficult moments in our careers, I was not playing, and Corinthians gave me that opportunity. I will try to reciprocate and give my best. I’m very happy,” he said during the press conference.
