Shouts, threats. Invasion of organized fans in the medical department of Botafogo. Embarrassing “business club” – Prism

São Paulo Brazil

Absurd scene.

Some Botafogo players were receiving medical treatment this morning to recover from their injuries. All lying on the stretcher. These include Victor Sá, Diego Gonçalves, Del Piage, Kayque and Lucas Fernandes.

Then, in complete peace, about 40 members of the troupe organized by Fúria Jovem entered the Department of Medicine.

And screaming, the players started to get scared. Charging the Brazilian’s bad campaign, which put the club in the relegation zone.

“What’s the matter, po …? You’re running out of money in your pocket, po …?” They shouted, lying around the players.

Meanwhile, other fans were knocking on the doors of the outpatient clinic, shouting at athletes who may be undergoing more intensive treatment or testing.

“Wake up, wake up, in that po …!”

They demanded the immediate departure of football director André Mazzuco.

Then there are pictures of the fans walking together and laughing at the Training Center.

And with the following sentences they showed the track.

“Wages on time. Ass is missing!

“Actor of the Dead”.

Only after the invasion did members of the Military Police arrive and, quietly, the fans left the Department of Medicine.

Organized members agree to return in the afternoon, with all players at the Training Center.

The players were very scared, angry with the situation.

And also because of the ease with which the “fans” can access the club’s medical department.

Botafogo has been experiencing a new financial reality since it became Sociedad Anônima do Futebol. And American John Textor became the owner of 90% of the club.

By the end of 2021, the club owed more than R $ 1.1 billion. The multimillion-dollar Textor has pledged R $ 400 million. In addition to establishing a fully professional management. Botafogo fans described him as “sent from heaven”.

The club has shrunk in recent decades due to irresponsible, incompetent and suspicious administrations. Hence the billion dollar debt.

But the expectations raised were exaggerated. Portuguese coach Luís Castro was hired. As well as various sports that cost around R $ 65 million. It was more than expected that it would be difficult to form a real team. It takes time to find the perfect strategy to bring together players who have never played on the same team.

But the idea that Textor himself sold was overly optimistic. He would fight, at least, for a 2023 Libertadores position.

On the field, however, the player was seen lost, trying to understand what Luis Castro tactically wanted.

In 11 games, despair.

Botafogo lost three games, drew three and lost five. The Brazilian is in 17th place in the relegation zone.

After Avaí’s defeat on Monday, in the heart of Nilton Santos Stadium, the fans shouted at the end of the match: “Shameless time”.

It was the fourth consecutive defeat.

Textor has already promised to spend another R $ 65 million on this mid-year window on hiring.

Fransérgio, from Bordeaux, Thiago Mendes, from Lyon, are two athletes in the negotiation.

It is incomprehensible that, with all the security in the Lonier space, where the players were being cared for, the fans had free entry.

The situation is unfortunately becoming more common in Brazilian clubs.

To the organized leaders who are always very scared of leaders. Vandals have no limits. And they also threaten the lives of players and team leaders in this country.

What happened in Botafogo today is a huge setback.

Above all, he promised that he would have a “first world” administration for the club.

And that should make American John Textor rethink.

Understand the reality of Brazilian football.

Where do you put your money?

It is not a mere investment.

Apply to form a strong multi-million dollar team to earn titles. And start selling young sports to Europe.

Football is much more complex than that.

Proof of this is the devastating invasion of Botafogo’s medical department.

Let him know how the ‘fans’ got into it.

What was the role of the security guards who worked at the club?

Many of the intrusions that have taken place in the past, in other teams, were facilitated by the board itself, as the athletes needed ‘shock treatment’.

Text to be informed.

A big, traditional and important club like Botafogo cannot be held hostage to its institutions.

And that has already dropped threefold due to a lack of money to form a competitive team.

The investment has arrived now.

But creating a competitive team takes time.

But there is no excuse for what happened today.

The invasion of the organized fans was embarrassing …
