Abel Ferreira tries to extend Portuguese rule in Libertadores

Saturday night (8pm, SportTV) Abel Ferreira has a great opportunity to further enhance his profile in the history of Palmeiras and South American football. To do this, they must lead Palmeiras to the second consecutive Libertadores title in the final against Flamengo at the Centenario Stadium in Montevideo, Uruguay. It will be something of a squabble between the last two champions.

In practice, Abel has the opportunity to renew the reign of Portuguese coaches for the third consecutive year, who won the most important competition for clubs in South America. Flamengo de Jorge Jesus took the trophy in 2019, and last year it was time for Abel Ferreira himself to achieve it almost three months after taking over technical command of Palmeiras.

Now, in his 105th game for São Paulo’s side, the 42-year-old coach in Penafiel can claim the third continental title in Verdao’s history, the first of which was won in 1999 with Luis Felipe Scolari as coach. In fact, in case of victory, the feat will be something outstanding, since since 2001 the coach has not lifted the trophy for several years in a row, and at that time it was Argentine Carlos Bianchi for Boca Juniors.

If he is a two-time Libertadores champion, Abel Ferreira will join Manuel José and José Mourinho as the only Portuguese coaches to win continental competitions more than once, the first being the four-time African Champions League winner Egyptians from Al. -Ahli (2001, 2005, 2006 and 2008) and Mourinho won the Champions League twice for FC Porto in 2004 and for Inter Milan in 2010.

In other words, the champion will join a group of five emblems with three titles – Nacional Montevideo, São Paulo, Santos, Gremio and Olympia Assuncion – and will only be behind Independiente (seven-time champion), Boca Juniors (6), Peñarol (5), Estudiantes (4) and River Plate (4).
