Paulo Sousa regrets not having a chance and complains about Gabigol’s unmarked penalty in Ceará vs Flamengo | Brazilian series a

Paulo Sousa left Castelão upset by Flamengo’s 2-2 draw with Ceará. In the coach’s view, the team from Rio could have settled the confrontation, as it was twice up front. The Portuguese blamed the missed chances and also Gabigol’s unmarked penalty.

The striker’s move occurred in the 41st minute of the second half. Flamengo won by 2-1 and Gabigol fell to the spot after Richardson’s argument. The referee ordered the game to continue and the VAR did not intervene. According to Central do Apito, judge Luiz Flávio de Oliveira was wrong.

– I checked out the extra capacity of the game we had in the first half. We could have solved the game by the end of the first half. At the start of the second half, we had two shots to be 3 to 1. Paul and Bruno’s last pass would have been more effective to finish.

– I’m not someone who makes a lot of refereeing references, these are two games obviously. In Botafogo we could make it 1-0 (Gabigol’s goal was forbidden) and had a completely different control. And now a 3 to 1 in a round of the game to be able to sentence this game.

Flamengo had just six points over the Brazilian, after six rounds, in 14th place (could fall out of position depending on other round results). Paulo Sousa also regretted that he was forced to replace the team three times this Saturday.

– We were forced to make three substitutions that we didn’t want. Bruno Henrique had to leave, David for half an hour had conditions that did not allow him to give his maximum and Isla himself, who was close to me, told me that he was in exhausted conditions – said Paulo Sousa, who goes on:

– We define refreshing our environment to continue to have more control because we have lost. We had the initiative in the transfers, but we lost control of the game. With more ball, with more possession and being able to reach the opponent’s field. Even recognizing the time to speed up and finish.

The team will play this Tuesday, at 9:30 p.m., against Universidad Católica, for the Libertadores, in Maracanã. For Brasileiro, he returns to play on Saturday, at 16:30, against Goiás, in Maracanã.

The second part of Flamengo

– Not just once (submission only), we could have done a lot more if the referee allowed us because the penalty is clear. There was a final pass after a ball with a change of speed on the final pass to Bruno in a very well done move and it wasn’t good for us to finish. We have a ball on the pole that we can decide the game.

– And the three forced replacements do not allow us to refresh areas where we believe we need to continue to dominate and create opportunities. This is what pushes us against our opponents.

– We also have Arrascaeta who is very weak physically, with a lot of difficulty getting involved in the game. And all of this has contributed to lowering our block and giving initiative to our opponent.

– The fan went through several moments. As I said at a press conference, he is a fan with a lot of passion for this club. And it will definitely support this difficulty with the results as it will show. We deserve it, we work for it. Unfortunately the opportunities are not beneficial, but we will continue to focus on what we believe. And definitely turn away.
