Less than a year ago, Miguel Merentiel was the champion of Brasileirao and the Brazilian Super Cup with Palmeiras. However, he spends more time on the bench than on the court. That’s why he came to Xeneize, borrowed, looked for filming. Hours before the semi-final Olé reviews the evolution of the Beast and the ‘Boca effect’ that he had in his career, when he stopped to join Cavani in attack.
Defensa if he sells it to Palmeiras
Everything is so fast. In July 2022, the Beast moved from Defensa y Justicia to Palmeiras. Verdao bought it for $1,400,000. With Defense, he left an excellent cycle: 79 games played and 27 goalsraised the Copa Sudamericana and Recopa Sudamericana in half.
In Palmeiras, Mereniel played only 11 games (none as a starter) and scored 2 goals (Bragantino and Santos). He was called up for 25 games, and since he played 11, he went to the bench for the remaining 14. The narrative shows that he had more minutes on the bench than in the game.
Boca loan: more minutes and goals
Wanting to film again, he arrived in Boca in February this year. One-year contract with an option to buy for 3 million dollars. And Boca changed his career: He played 39 games, 9 goals and 3 assists. The second highest mark of his career. Until becoming the top scorer in the Almirón cycle.
Cavani’s arrival makes Boca’s forward line more competitive. But with the Beast on the court, Xeneize has an advantage… the famous law of ex. In fact, in Brazil, this is an installed issue. And what are the fans worried about?
“Another factor that Verdão will face in Bombonera is the” ex law”, one that rarely fails. And look, it’s a recent ex, who is Merentiel, an athlete who until the other day was part of the Palmeiras squad”, Lance! published these hours.
The impact of Boca knocked on his door, invited him to the warm Bombonera and now confronted him with the owner of his pass. In front of his old colleagues. As the old and famous saying goes, football always takes revenge, and Merentiel has: With Boca’s, he will be able to avenge his past without Palmeiras football.
