Dorival’s team thrashed this Saturday (1) and broke a negative sequence for the Brasileirão; Fla was coming from two consecutive defeats and four matches without winning
Flamengo’s 4-1 rout against Red Bull Bragantino this Saturday (1), at Maracanã, for the 29th round of the Brasileirão, revived the spirits of the Rubro-Negra fans. The Club spent the month of September without winning in the national Serie A. There were four fasting games, with two draws (Goiás and Ceará) and two defeats (Fortaleza and Fluminense).
Despite leading Fla in a rush to the finals of Libertadores and Copa do Brasil, coach Dorival Jr began to be criticized in what would be the first of four setbacks in a row in the Brazilian. Since the tie against Ceará, at Maracanã, for the 26th round, the coach has seen part of the Rubro-Negra crowd defend the non-renewal of his contract in 2023.
Some flamenguistas even chose the ideal name to assume the technical command next season. The name mentioned was that of Jorge Sampaoli, who directed Olympique de Marseille in his last work. Sampaoli has done two recent jobs in Brazilian football, ahead of Atlético-MG and Santos. For Peixe, he was runner-up in Brazil in 2019. It turns out that, to the disappointment of part of the Nação Rubro-Negra, the Argentine coach should remain in European football.
The newspaper Marca, from Spain, brought this Sunday (2) the information that the professional has advanced talks to return to coaching Sevilla in 2023. Sampaoli passed through the Andalusian team between 2016 and 2017 and pleased him. He left the Club in fourth place in the Spanish Championship, after receiving an invitation from the Argentine national team. “Sampa” commanded Argentina in the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and failed, falling into the round of 16.
