  2. hello Naratorn you must make a correction in Corinthians, the greatest coach of Corinthians is the Tite not Vanderlei Luxembourg, Tite is the coach who most made history in Corinthians and won more major titles and Corinthians should be ahead of Palmeiras in the Ranking for Corinthians has two world championships.
