Vitinho played 215 games for Flamengo and scored 29 goals. He won one Libertadores, two Brazilians, two Supercopas do Brasil, one Recopa Sudamericana and three state championships. He lost space this season and didn’t score a goal in the 22 matches he played in 2022. He was booed in several games, even in Flamengo’s victories, for example, in the July 16 match, when the team defeated Coritiba 2-2. 0, at Mané Garrincha.
Flamengo will not receive any value for the transaction, but will keep 35% of the athlete’s economic rights, who would leave the club for free at the end of the contract, on December 31, 2022.

And now, to my companions: you are amazing! Never in my career have I experienced such a strong friendship relationship, where the ego is put aside and unity is prioritized.
