Dorival Júnior’s debut was Flamengo’s left foot. This Saturday, the team continued the same indifferent posture in previous games and lost to Internacional by 3-1, in Beira-Rio, in Porto Alegre. The only red-black goal was scored by Andreas Pereira. Upon returning to Rio de Janeiro, the players were charged outside the airport.
As the athletes boarded the bus, a group of fans took advantage of the opportunity to curse. In the pictures released by Julio Miguel Neto, it is possible to notice the strong accusation of Willian Arão. Filipe Luís, who was criticized in the match yesterday, was also one of the targets. The shouts of “team without shame” were also sung.
On the lawn in Beira-Rio, midfielder Diego spoke to reporters about the turbulent moment.
– Great challenge, as well as expectations. It’s time to work hard and say little. We need to correct. Soon, we will be fighting again at the table. I think it’s a winning squad, has a clear conscience, enjoys good things and is progressing. The responsibility is ours too. There are no secrets. You have to be someone to get it. That’s why we’re here until now. As long as we’re here, let’s do our best. We have some positive points, but we have a lot of work to do – Diego told the Premiere channel.
Speak up, Dorval!
– We really need to change this concept (issue of the soul of the players). We have to take turns a little and change our behavior in the field, change a little even in profile. In order for us to find a way again, we need to do something different from what has been done in the field, so that, by changing this attitude, we can find a condition that provides a rebalance to the competition.
– At a time like this, when some losses happen, you teach very easily, very simply for any professional. The important thing now is to point the finger at us. Everyone realizes what they are doing, what we need to improve, a greater need in all aspects, in all feelings, a dedication as well as the state of need itself, cause let’s change this key. A team like Flamengo can’t have that kind of attitude. We will work to improve all of this, to innovate, to provide greater possibilities than we see today. We need to have balance and peace. It’s a complicated time, I admit, but with a lot of struggle, a lot of work, we can find a new path and solution to everything we see.
