Flamengo defender, who is commenting on the World Cup games at Grupo Globo, spoke about his former teammate
After a positive season, with Copa do Brasil titles, over Corinthians, and Libertadores da América, against Athletico Paranaense, Flamengo still has four players in the World Cup. The Red-Black crowd now follows the Brazilians Pedro and Éverton Ribeiro, as well as the Uruguayans Varela and Arrascaeta in Qatar.
However, in addition to its players, something else draws the attention of Flamengo supporters in Qatar. This is left-back Filipe Luís, who has been a commentator for Grupo Globo during the World Cup. The defender has impressed with his understanding of the game in recent weeks and has even been asked to coach Rubro-Negro .
However, this Thursday (1), the subject was another: Daniel Alves. Filipe commented on his relationship with the veteran: “The guy I played with the most and fought the most, and even got kicked out, was him. We fought each other when he was at Sevilla, at Barcelona, he trained in the national team with cleats, to see who hit more than the other”, began the winger during the program “Seleção SporTV”.
“I admire Daniel’s career. I respect Cafú a lot (…), but what I saw Daniel do, I never saw anyone else do. I’ve never seen a winger play the way Daniel plays. He is complete, has a lot of quality, reads the game (…). He is living this moment that he deserves, he put himself there (in the World Cup)”, added the Flamengo defender.
