Corinthians goalkeeper Cássio voiced his frustrations after the team’s 1-0 loss to Argentinos Jrs in the Copa Sudamericana at the Diego Armando Maradona stadium. Cássio, bearing the weight of blame, said to ESPN, “Everything wrong that happens at Corinthians is my responsibility. If I’m the biggest culprit, maybe it’s time to leave and follow my path.”

Acknowledging his role in the team’s struggles, Cássio stated, “I’ll be there; I’m the captain, the oldest. It’s difficult, we are all human. I make mistakes.” He also revealed the emotional toll the criticism has taken on him in an interview with SBT: “It’s hard; I’ve been beaten like a dog. I’m going to see a psychologist, a psychiatrist, it’s really tough.”

Despite the pressure, Cássio remains reflective and committed, noting, “I’ve always done everything for Corinthians. If this is my last year, my time ends here, I’m grateful for everything.”

Remembering Zagallo
