I had the best season of my career in terms of statistics and we qualified for the Champions League. I worked well, but unfortunately I didn’t get on well with the new coach. I didn’t have a good relationship with him. But I know what I did there. The numbers don’t lie”immediately release him who was bought 80% of the Rio club for 15 M€ (plus bonuses).

Besides, he could have “stay in Europe, but no project is like Flamengo’s.” There is no more.
