The registration of the player with other friends had repercussions on social networks and caused outrage among fans of Timão, a club that has already suffered two outbreaks of Covid-19 since the beginning of the pandemic.
The striker Rodrigo Varanda is living in an enlightened moment, receiving chances in the professional team of Corinthians and gaining the vote of confidence from Coach Vagner Mancini. The young man, however, led a controversy last Sunday, 4, when he appeared in a futsal court, located in the Favela do Pau Queimado, in Tatuapé, on the east side of the São Paulo capital, without the use of a mask. Registration of the player with other friends without protection against new coronavirus had repercussions on social networks and caused outrage among fans of Timão, a club that has already suffered two outbreaks since the beginning of the pandemic.
Through social networks, Rodrigo Varanda spoke up and said he took off his mask just for the photos. “I’m getting a lot of messages, saying that I was breaking Covid’s procedure, I just took off my mask to post the photo. And about the court, it is in my community, where my daughter lives, there is no way for me not to visit the environment ”, wrote the athlete, who was raised in the favela. This is not the first time that a Corinthians player has been involved in controversy. Last month, in the midst of the Covid-19 outbreak in the squad, striker Jô and midfielder Rômulo Otero posted photos at a resort. As in the last time, Alvinegro paulista decided to resolve the case internally, without giving explanations to the press.
