The Fla team has taken advantage of the recent extension of the transfer window to intensify the search for potential players in the European market. One of Mingao’s goals is defender David Luiz. For several months, speculation about the interest dominated the news. However, commentator Walter Casagrande’s opinion about the possibility of transferring the player to Javea had an emphatic response from the Vice President of Football, Marcus Braz.
Over the weekend, Casagrande declared that the defender must be safe to play in Brazil: “I’m not talking about whether the player is good or bad. Sometimes the team is in place, and the coach is already there. A new man arrives to join the scheme, to know How he plays… In the case of David (Luiz), to go back to Brazil, you have to make sure. Make sure. You can’t get here in Brazil and see the lack of organization of the tournament, travel problems, bad situations… and think: ‘I could be in London,’ In Lisbon ‘No use anymore.’ Casagrande commented, ‘You have to know where it comes from’
The commentator’s speech had bad repercussions on the nation, however, during Andreas Pereira’s press conference, he exuded the indignation of many and revealed his thoughts on Casagrande’s comments:
“It was a pity on his part, respect as a human being, as an employee of a big television. But I think it was very bad and hurt not only Flamengo, but also the managers of all the great clubs, who in such a difficult moment, with the devaluation of the Real, with a complicated calendar, did not I understand his suggestion to David Luiz. I respect and try to find a sore point, but as Carioca, as a Brazilian, as a football director, I think that in this particular case he offended Brazilian football,” Braz replied.
