The vice president also talked about the possibility of the club having reinforcements – until now, Rubro-Negro has only brought Bruno Viana on loan
Marcos Braz, vice president of football of Flamengo, classified the maintenance of Rogerio Ceni as coach of the team as “assertive”, being the main decision of the board of the season, which ended with the title of Brazilian Championship 2020. Regarding the permanence of technician, the manager treated the matter naturally. “He has a contract with Flamengo until December 2021. He is the current Brazilian champion, he had some deserved vacation days to visit his father. When he returns, he resumes his work normally. There is not much to talk about, no, ”he said in an interview with“ Globoesporte.com ”.
“I understand the question, but I don’t understand Rogério’s insistence on asking. He has a contract with Flamengo, he just became champion with Flamengo. More than plausible that a week from now he will be here giving the training. In a very calm, very natural way ”, added Marcos Braz, who suffered strong pressure from the Flemish fans, even after the team won the second consecutive Brasileirão.
Marcos Braz also talked about a possible return of Jorge Jesus, multi-champion with the team in 2019 and experiencing a bad moment in Benfica, from Portugal. “I see a lot about Jorge Jesus. I don’t need an intermediary to talk to Jorge Jesus. I don’t need an intermediary to receive any kind of information from Jorge Jesus. I don’t need an intermediary to talk to an advisor, to a journalist. Will they want to talk about Jorge Jesus for me? It’s a joke, ”said the VP. “They are trying to show a business… it seems that Flamengo doesn’t want Jorge. I don’t need an intermediary to talk to Luis Filipe Vieira (president of Benfica). Jorge has a contract there. Whether it is good or bad, this analysis is not mine. It’s from the president and Jorge. I am not annoyed by the questions about Jorge. I’m just remembering that it was me who brought Jorge. With Dome it was the same thing, you can’t be selective ”, he added.
In the interview, Braz also talked about the possibility of the club having reinforcements – so far, Flamengo has only brought Bruno Viana on loan. “We have already taken the lead, we have hired Bruno Viana. We have to have imagination, common sense and knowledge of the market. But we’re not going to do five, not six hires. We don’t know if we will have proposals from our players. As it happens, we will adjust as well. We talk (with Rogério), but when he comes back we will accelerate ”, commented the agent, who talked about Rafinha’s return.
