Initially, Vinícius, now Cuiabá’s goalkeeper, asked for R$ 4,505,875.09 in court. At the hearing, the judge dismissed the SAF’s request to be withdrawn from the action. According to Ronaldo’s management, the requests made all took place in the management of the association.
Vinícius also asked for the receipt of amounts for moral damages, because, according to him, Cruzeiro would have been prohibited from entering Toca da Raposa in the team’s re-performance, pointing out that “the treatment was humiliating”. Request denied by court.
