The 51-year-old Portuguese is responsible for continuing some of Rubro-Negro’s jewels, and one of them is well armored by the board
Paulo Sousa has been responsible for following up on some Flamengo jewels, and one of them is well shielded by the high dome of Gávea. Names like Lázaro and João Gomes became more important to the squad. In addition, medallions such as Diego Alves and Diego Ribas, for example, are increasingly in the background.
Last Wednesday night (11), Mais Querido beat Altos, at Raulino de Oliveira, 2-0, with goals from Gabigol and Victor Hugo. As a result, the team from Rio confirmed their favoritism and advanced to the round of 16 of the Copa do Brasil, pocketing around R$ 3 million for the coffers. It is worth remembering that the first leg ended 2-1 for CRF.
Rookie, and newly promoted to professional, Victor has a renewed contract until 2027 and has a termination penalty set at 100 million euros (something around R$ 532.2 million at the current price). Responsible for putting the 18-year-old in the top team, the ex-Polander praised the young man’s performance at CdB.
“He has good ability to interpret spaces, plays well on his back and physically he is a good player, he is explosive. It has a very good game read. He is a player who, as we have seen today, has a lot of presence inside the area. There’s a goal – evaluated Paulo Sousa, who has been looking at the youth of the club’s youth divisions carefully”, said the Portuguese.
Rubro-Negro returns to the field next Saturday afternoon (14), at 16:30 (Brasília time), against Ceará, at Castelão. In a game valid for the 6th round of the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A, Fla has the opportunity to leave the setback for Botafogo to fall into oblivion. The team is in 14th place, with five points, and needs to win if they don’t want to see their rivals distance themselves in the first part of the table.
