This Sunday (6), Flamengo won with a touch of emotion the Clasico dos Milhos by defeating Vasco 2-1 at Nelton Santos Stadium in the tenth round of the Carioca Championship. As a result, Robro Negro remained in the state’s deputy leadership position with 23 points added in 10 matches. However, the duel was marked by the failure of Andreas Pereira, who was criticized by the nation and left the field visibly shaken.

That’s because the midfielder lost the ball in the red and black attack zone, causing a counterattack that led to the opponent’s goal. Part of the fans complained on the Internet and remembered the final presentation of the Copa Libertadores last year, when Andreas failed in the Flamengo defense, causing Palmeiras to goal for the title, scored by Deverson. After Paulo Sousa came out in defense of Flamengo’s 18th player, Arascaeta also did not stay silent on social media.

In an Instagram post sent by Andreas Pereira after the match, the Uruguayan midfielder made sure to put himself in the comments section, to the excitement of the red-and-black crowd: “Play a lot, brother. Let’s go together,” wrote Arascaeta, who scored Flamengo’s winning goal . It should be noted that this action in the 14th shirt contradicts the Portuguese coach’s speech, which called for the union of the team and the fans to help Andreas overcome the last bad stage.

Andreas Pereira is on loan from Robro Negro club, on loan from Manchester United, from England, until the middle of the season, but the council has already indicated that it is interested in contracting with the player permanently, as he paid about 63 million Brazilian riyals. The midfielder played 30 matches in the Flamengo shirt and scored five goals. Flamengo will return to the field next Saturday (12), at 7:30 pm, to face Pango, away from home, in the 11th round of Carioca.
