Palmeiras had previously filed a lawsuit against John Textor for precisely raising suspicions of result manipulation by the São Paulo club. At the end of 2023, Textor said that he had a study that proved that Botafogo should have had 21 more points at the end of the Brasileirão and that Porco was greatly helped by the arbitration.

Textor Interview

During the afternoon and evening of this Monday (01), John Textor gave statements to the Medeiros Channeljournalist who has a channel on YouTube which covers Botafogo, claiming to have sent the court evidence that results were manipulated in the last Brazilian Championships and cited Palmeiras.

The American said he had heavy evidence, with 100% certainty that Palmeiras was benefiting due to manipulation of results in the last two Brasileirãos. He stated that he was sending them to Brazilian justice to investigate. He did not send it to the sports courts but to the common courts, according to him, he does not see a desire in sports judges to investigate the complaint.

The supposed evidence

In the evening he published on his website a part of the study of what he says is evidence of manipulation of results. The reports are based on an Artificial Intelligence program and experts, which found in two Palmeiras games, against São Paulo in the second round of the 2023 Brasileirão and against Fortaleza in the 2022 tournament.

The experts who analyzed the material, according to John Textor, also found possible manipulations in the match's moves.
