Mauricio Sousa, better known as Mauricino, is outside Flamengo. The coach who began preparations for the team that will compete in the first rounds of the Carioca Championships, was dismissed on Monday, the same day Paulo Sousa was introduced as the new captain of the main team.
Fabio Matthias, the under-20 coach who has led the team in the first two rounds of the São Paulo Junior Soccer Cup, will take over the team that will start the state championship. Fabio will leave Sao Paulo on Monday for Rio to train and prepare for the team that will make their debut in Carioca against Portuguesa on the 26th.
Mario Jorge, Under-17 coach, replaces Fabio Matthias in Copeña. Incidentally, Flamengo, already seeded, ends their participation in the first stage on Tuesday, 21:45 (Brasilia time), against Oeste.
