Flamengo formed a midfield full of Uruguayan class this season, after signing Nicolás De La Cruz to form a partnership with Giorgian De Arrascaeta, a reference for the red-and-black team since 2019. However, in the Uruguay team , the two are competing for position, a dispute won by De La Cruz. This midfielder promises to raise the team's level, combining technique and game vision. Fans are eager to see this duo in action. Integration between them could be the key to Flamengo's new achievements.

The Uruguayans have in Nicolás De La Cruz, ex-River Plate, a fundamental pillar for their coach Marcelo Bielsa's team. Bielsa values ​​intense movement and sees De La Cruz as an essential piece. The greater physical capacity of Flamengo's number 18 justifies his usual place among the Uruguayan team's starters. In addition to his physical strength, De La Cruz is very creative, a vital characteristic for the style of play proposed by Bielsa. This combination of skills makes him a complete and essential player.



The fixed tactical scheme with two wingers, Maximiliano Araújo and Facundo Pellistri, a center forward, Darwin Núñez, and two combative midfielders, Federico Valverde and Manuel Ugarte, allow space for just one attacking midfielder. In this scenario, De La Cruz manages to stand out. The team's priority is to put high pressure on the opponent's defense, favoring players with great physical capacity and mobility. De La Cruz fits perfectly into this strategy, earning coach Bielsa's preference.



At 27 years old, Nicolás De La Cruz is not only younger than Arrascaeta, 30 years old, but also has a more versatile playing characteristic. De La Cruz can play on the sides of the field or retreat as a midfielder, demonstrating “more lungs” on the field. In the current Copa América, he already has two assists, while Arrascaeta has just one. This versatility and physical resistance are attributes that make De La Cruz a natural choice for Uruguay's dynamic style of play.


Brazilian fans, accustomed to following Arrascaeta Since their time at Cruzeiro, they know that number 10 values ​​less hustle and more about refined touches. Arrascaeta makes the ball flow and organizes the game with precision. At Flamengo, the team molds itself around him, allowing him to not have to spend so much time recovering the ball. This approach allows Arrascaeta to shine in offensive plays and maintain its high level of performance.


In Uruguay's dominant 2-0 victory over Brazil in October Last year, in the World Cup qualifiers, De La Cruz was a starter and also scored one of the goals. This performance reinforced his importance in the Uruguayan team and justified Bielsa's choice. De La Cruz proved to be decisive in big games, raising his international reputation. The victory over Brazil was an important milestone, consolidating confidence in his abilities.


Today, De La Cruz must continue leaving Flamengo's teammate, Arrascaeta, in the selection bench. This situation exemplifies the intense competition and quality that exists in the Uruguayan midfield. While De La Cruz stands out for his energy and versatility, Arrascaeta continues to be a key player at Flamengo. The dispute between the two players only enriches Uruguayan football, offering several tactical options for coaches. Flamengo, in turn, benefits from having two of the best midfielders in South America.

Luiz Eduardo Baptista,known as BAP, stands out in the race for the presidency of Flamengo. In a context where the professionalization of football clubs becomes increasingly essential, BAP brings a clear and objective vision of the importance of having a fully professional structure within the club.

According to BAP, the professionalization< /a> is crucial for any club that aims to achieve and maintain success. He compares the reality of European football with that of Brazil to emphasize the need for changes at Flamengo. “Look at Europe. Are there any amateur VPs at any European clubs? Does Real Madrid have a VP of amateur football? The City? Barcelona?” asks BAP, highlighting that top clubs in Europe have exclusively professionals on their boards.


BAP TALKS ABOUT UPDATES AND PROFESSIONALISM 
BAP highlights that, for a club to be successful, its professionals must be fully dedicated and prepared to deal with the responsibilities that the position requires. “Professionals work 12, 13 hours a day. And if he loses, he loses his job,” he states. This level of commitment is one of the central points of his proposal for Flamengo.

The comparison with European clubs serves as a clear example of the difference in approach between European and Brazilian football. While on Europe professionalization is the norm, in Brazil, many clubs still operate with a more amateur structure, especially in senior management positions. BAP believes that this difference is one of the factors preventing Flamengo from reaching its full potential.

The president of the Deliberative Council of Flamengo, Antônio Alcides, called a meeting for the next 29th to approve the club's participation in the auction for the acquisition of the former Gasometer land, expropriated by the City Hall for the construction of a stadium for the minimum 70 thousand people.

The auction takes place on July 31st. As the rules of the dispute provide that participants can increase their offer in verbal bids if there is more than one interested party, the Council's call calls for carte blanche so that the president can increase the minimum value of R$138 million throughout the auction.< /p>

“The President of the Clube de Regatas do Flamengo requested that the following proposition be resolved by the plenary of this Council: 'Authorize Flamengo to participate in the aforementioned auction and offer bids at a value equal to or greater than the valuation, in accordance with the prudent discretion of the President and his team, so that the Flamengo may acquire the aforementioned property at a value it deems fair, reasonable and compatible with its financial health”, says the request.


Flamengo’s expectation is that the conditions of the notice exclude other interested parties from the auction, as Flamengo is the only club interested in building a stadium for 70 thousand people. However, as there is no prior registration for the auction, it will only be known at the time if there are other interested parties and Flamengo will have to spend more than R$138 million.


The president Rodolfo Landim should have meetings this Friday in Brasília with directors of Caixa Econômica Federal to convince the company, administrator of the fund that manages the land, not to question the value of the auction in court. This means that the club can reach an agreement to offer a value above the minimum in the auction that is not questioned by Caixa in court.

Dissident candidate for president of Flamengo, Luiz Eduardo Baptista (Bap) expressed concerns that the Court will win the case for Caixa and force Flamengo to pay a much higher amount than expected in the auction. In direct negotiations, Flamengo was willing to pay up to R$250 million for the land, and yet Caixa did not accept the offer as it believed the land would be worth up to R$400 million.
