On Wednesday night (15), Flamengo hosted Bolívar at home and defeated the Bolivian team 4-0. However, during the second half, all of Brazil was hit by sad news, the death of the journalist and former Mais Querido coach: Apolinho. After the confrontation, Tite lamented the broadcaster's departure.

"Apolinho. I heard the news from Bruno Spindel (football executive). Here are my condolences to the family. From Rio Grande do Sul I heard Apolinho, I saw him as Flamengo coach. He has a very beautiful story. When you hear little bad things about a person, it's because he's good. My hug and our condolences," said Tite, at a press conference at Maracanã.

PASSAGEM FROM APOLINHO FOR THE FLA

Apolinho was renowned on Globo and Tupi radio stations and was a fanatic for Flamengo. His love for the club made the radio host become a coach in 1995, at the invitation of then president Kleber Leite. At Rubro-Negro, he commanded the so-called "best attack in the world", Sávio, Romário and Edmundo, in the year of the club's centenary.

VITÓRIA DO FLAMENGO "A LÁ APOLINHO"< According to information from Rádio Tupi, Apolinho left watching Flamengo play. The former commander of Mais Querido liked to score goals and even invented the famous "chocolate" in football. In this way, Rubro-Negro paid homage to him on the field by beating Bolívar 4-0.

The young right-back Wesley, from Flamengo, is in the sights of European clubs who see great potential in the player. According to information from journalist Julio Miguel Neto, several teams from the old continent are interested in a loan from Wesley, with the option to purchase at the end of the contract.

These European clubs are keeping an eye on the young man's talent athlete and believe he could adapt quickly to European football. However, Flamengo has no plans to release Wesley at this time. The absence of Varela, who will be away due to the Copa América dispute, makes Wesley's presence even more crucial for the Rio team.


FLAMENGO HAS A NEW JOB FOR WESLEY


The stance from Flamengo is clear: Wesley will only leave the club if a purchase proposal appears that he cannot refuse. Until that happens, the right-back will continue defending the red and black colors.

The Flamengo coach plans to give Wesley more opportunities in the next games. This means the player will have more time on the field and will be able to show his full potential. The expectation is that he will increasingly establish himself as an important piece in the starting team.
