Defeat in the final of the 2023 Brazil Cup hit Flamengo. So much so, that the club’s president agreed to sack Jorge Sampaoli even though he has supported him despite opposition pressure in recent months.
Erick Pulgar’s coach still has three practices this week, held in a unique climate, because the players know that he will not continue in office. This happened while the club and the strategic reached an agreement on financial matters, a situation that they are still negotiating.
However, ‘Mengao’ is not in a position to present in these minutes what is sure to be his new coach: Tite. The former coach of Brazil wanted to take some time and look for a chance in Europe, but the call from the leadership of flamenco seduced him.
Of course, they don’t have a total agreement yet. Flamengo and Tite discussed the economic issue, but also the project, because the coach wants to have total autonomy to make decisions about the squad and other daily rules.
Along these lines, the ‘Fla’ board analyzes this point internally, because there are many players who cannot be changed (due to the level and cost of the salary) that the coach can ask for. In addition, there is a situation to settle, because no one has forgotten the conflict that arose between Tite and Gabigol for not calling the striker ‘verdeamarelha’ when he made a decision.
However, in the black and white internal team they are optimistic and believe that everything will be faster if they can solve the situation with Sampaoli to finalize the details with Tite. For now, Casildense will direct this Saturday, when they host Bahia in the Maracana starting at 4:00 pm on the 25th of Brasileirao 2023.
