“We don’t seek a player because he is or might become important. If we need a player and we see that is someone who we need, we go after him. We will fight to sign him.
“Our idea is to keep the club always on the top. If we are not the best, we have to fight to be among the best.
“Many people said that Corinthians didn’t need to make signings, but we brought in three great players – Pato, Renato Augusto and Gil.”
