The Portuguese coach led the Polish national team before accepting Flamengo’s offer in early 2022
After a positive season, with titles in the Brazilian Cup, over Corinthians, and Libertadores da América, against Atlético Paranaense, Flamengo still has four World Cup players. The Red-Black crowd is now following the Brazilians Pedro and Everton Ribeiro, as well as the Uruguayans Varela and Arrascaeta in Qatar.
However, in addition to their players, there is something else that catches the eye of Flamengo fans in Qatar. This is the Poland national team led by Czeslaw Michniewicz, but it was previously in the hands of an acquaintance of the Red and Blacks fan: Paulo Sousa. The Portuguese left the Polish team in early January to take over for Maes Querido.
After Poland’s defeat by Argentina on Wednesday afternoon (30), Flamengo fans went crazy on social media to mock the legacy of Paulo Souza. While some remembered that the Portuguese coach could now be in the last 16 of the World Cup, others took advantage of the gap to mock the coach, who was not absent much in Rio de Janeiro.
Paulo Souza coached Flamengo before Campeonato Carioca and won two runners-up titles in Javea: State and Supercopa do Brasil. During his time in Brazil, he had a positive performance: there were 32 matches, with 19 wins, seven draws and six defeats. He did not win any titles and had two runners-up, the country and the Brazilian Super Cup.
