Marcos Braz, Flamengo’s vice president of football, has confirmed that he is on a trip to Portugal with the aim of finalizing the appointment of a coach. On the agenda, wait, there will be a meeting with Jorge Jesus.
“We have a relationship with him. Jorge Jesus knows very well what our first conversations were. He knows what he put on the table to come to Brazil. He knew Flamengo, we had mutual acquaintances. And he knows that everything I dealt with him I accomplished. I have that credit with him. He has a contractual status [com o Benfica]But when I go to Portugal, I meet him. For me, it would be frustrating to go to Portugal and not buy a cup of coffee”, the manager admitted, citing Globoesporte.
Regardless of Jorge Jesus, Marcos Braz hopes to finish hiring a coach on this trip. “We have a pre-set agenda, not because it’s Plan A, B or C. Because of the logistics. If I don’t come back (before Christmas), I will die at home. We have five or six days to get it right. Not only will we stay in Lisbon, but We’ll walk in there. We have targeting and planning. Let’s do it carefully, calmly, even if we are forced to overpower this appointment. We want it ASAP, but let’s go for security. There is no doubt that we will hire a professional player equal to Flamengo and win the titles we have won. in the past three years.”
Carlos Carvalal and Vitor Pereira were also named in the Rio de Janeiro crest, but Marcos Braz was wary. “We have analysis and goals, but there are situations of coaches with a contract. There are situations where coaches have to make a decision about their lives and not just the sport. When Jorge Jesus left, we had a target group, which was Carlos Carvalal. He, for a personal problem, could not come It’s not just the coach who wants to come to Flamingo It’s to see if you can change your life More so if you have kids It’s not a joke It’s not our problem We just take care of things and provide a framework for that exchange in life to be possible But The coach wants,” he added.
