As Love claimed, Corinthians “was the team that won titles here in Brazil, I created a very strong identification. Not that I didn’t create in other clubs, but it’s Corinthians because I won titles and scored important goals. CSKA is something apart. It was the club I was with for seven years, I won titles, a Europa League. In Brazil, it’s Corinthians, and outside CSKA”.

Love eliminated Corinthians from Libertadores 2010 by Flamengo

Interestingly, Vagner Love is responsible for one of Corinthians’ biggest disappointments in Libertadores, and playing for Flamengo. In 2010, the centenary year of the club from São Paulo, Love was half of Império do Amor in the Rubro-Negro attack. The other half in that sense was Adriano.

In the round of 16 of that Libertadores, Flamengo and Corinthians met. The black-and-white from São Paulo had the advantage of deciding at home for having made the best campaign in the first phase. On the other hand, Rubro-Negro ranked in the bowl of souls, as the worst runner-up. That’s why they faced each other.

In the first game, however, Flamengo won 1×0, with a goal by Adriano, on a night of deluge at Maracanã. For the return, Ronaldo and Roberto Carlos’s Corinthians relied on Fiel in the packed Pacaembú to reverse. And they almost did. The São Paulo team opened 2×0 with David against and Ronaldo, still in the first half.

It was when, four minutes into the second half, Vagner Love received a ball at the entrance of the area from the left and hit it crossed. the 2×1 defeat qualified Flamengo for the goal scored away from home. Corinthians would only reach their Libertadores title in 2012.
