After Palmeiras goalkeeper Deola had come out after last night's game to say that the players had delayed the team's trip to Rio de Janeiro in protest at the club's lack of response to the assault of João Vitor, club hero Marcos has today commented that he was against the move.

Speaking to journalist Leandro Quesada, Marcos said: "I argued that the players should not stop the team traveling to Rio. The team can not stop playing, it will come back to hurt us." 

"A few fans do not represent the entirety of our 15 million supporters."

"Palmeiras can not put on security 24 hours a day for all players. This is impossible."

Kléber on the other hand looks set to leave the club, having fallen out with club officials and manager Luis Felipe Scolari on the club's lack of response.

Kléber led the player's protests, having personally felt the danger of the fans who have been involved with confrontations with several players in recent times.
