I'm really hoping that we bring this player, we're already talking, I talked to him the other day for about 40 minutes, to find out if he was willing to come to Grêmio to play, what his condition was. He's a guy I like, a high-level professional, and the guy plays a lot. On and off the pitch, he's a great professional, he's Rodrigo Caio'', he began by saying.

''He's a guy who's young, he had a knee problem, but he's training on his own It's okay, I've been talking to him. We will see. He plays a lot. He will definitely add a lot to our group, he is an experienced guy. He won't play every game, but when he does, he's very tall,'' he added.

Rodrigo Caio has been free on the market since the end of his contract with Flamengo at the end of last year. . With the red-black shirt, the defender won 11 titles (two CONMEBOL Libertadores, two Brazilians, two Super Cups, one Copa do Brasil, one CONMEBOL Recopa and three Cariocas).

Pedro is the main scorer in Brazilian football in the 2024 season. Since arriving at Flamengo, coach Tite chose to use the number 9 as the only striker in the area, leaving Gabigol on the bench. Thus, Michel Bastos, former player, advised Gabriel Barbosa to leave the red-and-black club due to lack of playing time.

“The club that signs Gabigol will make a great signing. Now, at Flamengo, he won’t play, because Pedro is the best center forward in Brazil”, said Michel Bastos. The former player, who played for the Brazilian national team, commented on the subject during an 'ESPN' program.


GABIGOL'S SITUATION

Gabigol lives the worst moment since his arrival at Flamengo. This is because the center forward lost space with Jorge Sampaoli, in 2023. With the arrival of Tite, the player remained among the reserves. However, the situation worsened in 2024, when number 99 was suspended from football after being framed for attempted fraud in anti-doping tests.

In addition, Gabigol was seen wearing the Corinthians shirt last Thursday- fair (17), generating revolt from red and black fans on social media and in the stands. Therefore, as punishment, Flamengo removed the center forward's number 10 and deducted 10% of his salary.


ATTACKERS' NUMBERS

Pedro is the team's main scorer Brazilian football in 2024. The number 9 found the net on 17 occasions in 23 games played. In addition, he provided two assists. On the other hand, Gabigol only scored two goals and did not make any passes to his teammates this season.

NEXT GAME

With Pedro and Gabigol available, Flamengo faces Amazonas this Wednesday (22), at 9:30 pm (Brasília time), at Arena da Amazônia, in Manaus. The match is valid for the return match of the third phase of the Copa do Brasil.

Flamengo could have had the chance to beat Bragantino on Saturday (4) with a possible penalty not given to Luiz Araújo at the end of the second half. Shortly after a cross from the left, the red-and-black number 7 invaded the area from the right and was pulled down by the São Paulo club's defender. However, Leonardo Gaciba, former head of refereeing at the CBF, said on ESPN that as the ball was not in Luiz's possession, the penalty was not awarded. Gaciba does not agree with the recommendation.

“What worries me is the guidance given this year. What the refereeing committee is saying is that: ‘If the tackle happens outside the play, if the ball doesn’t go to them, it won’t score, because it had no impact on the game.” Isn't that shocking?', roared the now refereeing commentator.


It was a penalty for Luiz Araújo, says Gaciba

At another point in the explanation, Leonardo Gaciba said it was a penalty for Luiz Araújo. The general internal and external revolt at Flamengo, so much so that coach Tite didn't even hold a press conference at the Nabi Abi Cheddi stadium. In the press room, executive director Bruno Spindel and football vice Marcos Braz spoke to journalists.

“The Bragantino player doesn't want to play at any time, he just wants to grab the Bragantino player. Flamengo. For me, there is the penalty. There is no closed camera to be able to analyze the impact in more detail. But from the images I saw, it exists”, said Gaciba.


Flamengo turns the key and focuses on the Libertadores

Flamengo's next match after the confusion against Red Bull Bragantino will be against Palestino, from Chile, away from home, in the fourth round of the group stage of the Copa Conmebol Libertadores. The match will be on Tuesday (7), at 9pm (Brasília time).
