Jô's teammate, Leandro Donizete also agreed: "We won and put pressure on Fluminense. Let's see how they behave under pressure. We can focus on the game against Flamengo."
The playmaker also added that the win was the right result on the day: "If we didn't win, it would have been a great injustice. We played better and it was a deserved victory."
