Bruno Spindel spoke to the press in Rio de Janeiro on Friday before his trip to Portugal.
Marcos Braz and Bruno Spindel, Vice President and CEO of Football for Flamengo, respectively, arrived in Lisbon on Saturday. In the bag, they bring an open wish: to bring Jorge Jesus back to the club. Before leaving for the Portuguese capital, Spindel spoke to the press in Rio de Janeiro and confirmed that a meeting was scheduled with the current Benfica captain.
“The idea is this [ter uma conversa com o Jorge Jesus]. He has a nice history in Flamingo. There is a great friendship with me, with Marcus [Braz], with the boss, with a lot of people in Flamingo. With the technical team as well. He’s done a very successful job, he’s a great person and a great coach and nothing is fairer than talking to the coach and understanding the possibilities and the plans and of course we would like him to be with us at Flamengo and make more history. We would like him to be here with us again,” the Black Red chief explained.
When asked if Jorge Jesus would be the priority on the Flamengo delegation’s trip to Portugal, Bruno Spindel didn’t go straight.
“I wouldn’t say it’s a priority. We have to have that conversation. We would love for him to be here with us again. We know he has a contract with Benfica and this is a tough window for European coaches. The season ends in the middle of the year and it’s difficult to hire.”
The game found that the two leaders would argue the argument that Jesus was the target in Luz, as happened again in a League Cup match, against Covilha, as the Eagles even sealed the pass to the final four of the competition. In addition, Braz and Spindel are familiar with Benfica’s calendar, having played two matches against FC Porto, both in Dragão, before the end of the year, one for the Portuguese Cup and the other for the tournament, which they believe could influence the decision of the coach and .. Benfica.
Realizing that hiring Jorge Jesus is difficult, those in charge of Mingao, who does not have a coach, have two more Portuguese names. The case of Carlos Carvalhal has already been discussed, but the Braga coach’s ten million euro termination clause complicates the matter. Poland coach Paulo Sousa is another target that will please Florida and will also try out during this “tour” of Europe.
