While Nottingham Forest won’t go and trigger Carlos Miguel’s release clause at Corinthians, the player lives a very uncomfortable situation at the club.

Fans are mad at him because of the timing of his exit, and even though he’s eager to play until the transfer is done, it’s still turning into a big drama.

Carlos Miguel was a starter against Atlético-GO on Monday, and on UOL, journalist André Hernan shares some details about the decision.

The reporter claims the goalkeeper always made himself available, as the transfer to Nottingham Forest won’t change the respect he has for the club.

“A behind-the-scenes look at Carlos Miguel. Yesterday, the fans went crazy when he was named in the starting line-up. Carlos Miguel knew he was going to start the day before the game. In the penultimate training session Matheus Donelli worked with the first team, but in the last training session Carlos Miguel worked the whole time with the first team. Training ended and António Oliveira said: ‘Carlos Miguel, you’re going to play’,” said Hernan.

“Carlos Miguel already knew he was going to start. There was no talk of taking the temperature of the fans, Carlos Miguel made himself available. Someone will come along to pay the fine, he wants to leave for English football, but in June he agreed eye-to-eye in a conversation with Antônio Oliveira at the Joaquim Grava Centre that he would be available. Antônio Oliveira likes Carlos Miguel, he has confidence in him and he said ‘it’s my responsibility, I’m going to play him’.”

The Brazilian media had already claimed that Nottingham Forest would take a while to trigger Carlos Miguel’s release clause. That has to do with Financial Fair Play, and it’s very possible they’ll only get that done in July, even though the amount is just €4m.

Fans are angry at the goalkeeper because in the past few months, he put on pressure to get a place in the team, in a situation which pushed club legend Cássio out of the club.
