If Flamingo had to spend R $ 7.7 million to return Paulo Sousa, the amount that refers to the salaries remaining until the end of the year, the economic effort would not have been the same to remove Dorival Júnior from Cear. The fine imposed by the council of Vôzão is R $ 450 thousand.
Dorival will arrive with her son Lucas Silvestre’s assistant and physical trainer Celso Rezende.
Despite the turbulent environment and the fact that the football department has made a series of mistakes to fight for the title despite its recent mistakes, Dorival “listened to his heart” and decided to stop the good run that was taking place before Cear.

The melancholy training of Paulo Sousa and the long-awaited announcement
In addition to Wednesday’s embarrassing press conference after playing in Flamenco’s defeat against Flamengo Bragantino, Paulo Sousa had to endure another embarrassing situation on Friday. He was also aware that he would be sent abroad, so he took part in the activities normally. Among those smiles, he had breakfast and lunch before dropping the grass and directing the training of athletes who hadn’t started the Bragança Paulistan match.
Accompanied by members of his committee, he got into a car and set off for the countryside on a rainy Thursday to begin one of his last steps in Atibaia.
After the activity, he climbed up and met Marcos Braz, Bruno Spindel, Juan and Fabinho Soldado to receive the news that would not surprise anyone. After 6pm, it was announced that he and his six assistants would not be in charge of Flamenco.
The official communication took place while the players and their board members were having dinner in another room. Half an hour later, the athletes officially learned what they had known since the day before.
Shame affects the player team
Despite being embarrassed throughout the day, Marcos Braz highlighted the ethical relationship he had with Paulo Sousa in his words when he announced that the coach had left the team.
Paul then spoke and thanked the players and club staff in particular. Diego asked for the floor at the end and thanked the coach. He said things were not going well at some point, but he admitted that Paul was always looking for the best for Flamingo.
The mood of embarrassment also struck the players from the first hours of the day, and embarrassment was a recurring theme in conversation circles.
“Slutty what they’re doing,” one player said.
– He (Paul) came to me and I doubted if he would come to say goodbye or give guidance – changed another.
Then, after announcing the dismissal to the athletes, in the middle of a wake, Paul insisted on saying goodbye to everyone one by one.
Among the many embarrassments, Paulo Sousa ended his prudent Flamenco season. The club was also cautious in its official announcement, with a message on Twitter that did not even reach the 280-character limit and no thank-you message.
An economic and discreet career with a few moments of joy and no connection between the coach, the players and the stands.
