Thiago Neves: Fluminese are not in a bad run
Thiago Neves has hit out at suggestions that Fluminense are in a bad patch of form after recent displays have seen fans jeering players.
The Brasileirão champions have had a poor week which included a heavy 3-0 defeat to Grêmio but Neves says they are not having a bad spell.
"The truth is they [the media] are creating pressure where none exists. Fluminense is on a roll, everything has been coming together in recent years, achieving feats that no one though we could. Our mood is calm," Neves said.
The player also appealed for the support of the fans who booed him in recent matches due to poor performances, particularly against Madureira where he missed a penalty.
"I ask for a vote of confidence. Forget about the loss to Grêmio and the draw against Madureira. We start again and our focus now is on the next match," he added.
