City Group is headed for resounding failure in Brazil. In May, with great fanfare, he acquired 90% of the shares of Bahia, which prides itself on having become Brazilian champions twice, in 1959 and 1988, this second time with the Exculer Evaristo de Macedo as a trainer. He then announced an investment of 200 million euros, half of which was for transfers.
Well, the Bahian tricolor needs a carom to avoid relegation on the final day of the Brasileirao, which takes place next morning. The team he now leads Rogerio Ceni (the goalkeeper with the most goals in the history of Brazilian football) has the duty to score at home against Atlético Mineiro and expects a comeback from Vasco da Gama and/or Santos. It’s not an easy undertaking
If relegation is confirmed, it would be a huge blow to City’s grandiose project in Brazil. which aims to compete for the most important local and continental titles “in a short time”. The example to follow is the Red Bull group, which has become one of the leading clubs in Brazil since Bragantino took over.
