Flamengo is intensifying its efforts to identify African talents for its youth categories, seeking to discover them before European clubs even notice them. In this context, Nigerians Shola and Hassan have stood out as brilliant promises. Playing for Flamengo's Under-20s, they have impressed with their performance in the Under-20 Brasileirão.

Since the start of the competition, Shola and Hassan have been constant presences as starters in the team, demonstrating skill and determination in field. In four matches played so far, they have directly contributed to six of the eight goals scored by Flamengo, being fundamental players in the attack. Shola has accumulated three assists, in addition to a goal scored, while Hassan has already scored twice.


Hassan Haruna, who arrived at Flamengo in March this year on loan from XV de Piracicaba, has been particularly inspired by success of his compatriot Shola. Quickly adapting to Mais Querido's style of play, the striker shows a promising rise in Brazilian football.


In turn, Shola arrived at Flamengo in May 2023, bringing with him great expectations. Previously, the player had played for Remo Stars in his home country, establishing a promising path for other Nigerian talents to follow. His arrival not only strengthened Flamengo's Under-20 squad, but also opened doors to new international recruitment opportunities for the club.

This focus on identifying and developing African talent shows an innovative strategy on the part of Flamengo, seeking to secure young talents for the future. With Shola and Hassan leading the way, Flamengo demonstrates its determination to build a solid foundation while continuing to seek new opportunities for growth and success.

Flamengo's board was tough and objective this Friday afternoon. That's because the Rio de Janeiro red-and-black team fined and removed Gabigol's number 10 shirt. Therefore, the player vented on social media about the club's decision. The punishment was due to the leaked photo of the athlete wearing the Corinthians shirt.

The attacker explained that he accepts the decision and respects Flamengo's command, but also stated that the episode will not erase his history with the Rubro-Negro.


CHECK OUT GABIGOL'S FULL NOTE ON THE CONTROVERSY WITH FLAMENGO

"On that 11/12, 2022, after having felt the greatest emotions of my life with the glories and significant achievements for Flamengo, the club presented me with a very special shirt, number 10, simply the mantle worn by our greatest idol, Zico.

I confess that I felt a certain insecurity, because along with that shirt, came a great weight of responsibility.


At Flamengo, I found the best version of myself and I'm experiencing the best cycle of my career. I'm fascinated by titles and I've always expressed that on the website. excessive will on the field, which is often misinterpreted.

Flamengo allowed me to win many titles (2 Libertadores, 2 Brasileiros, 1 Copa do Brasil, 1 Recopa Sudamericana, 2 Supercups of Brazil and 4 Cariocas) and live these magical moments with the nation and be welcomed by the biggest fans in America, that is the true meaning of the word happiness.

In these more than 5 years of joy, and some sadness, I have always been certain, that of my love for this club, that of the love for the red-and-black nation.

Today I was informed by Flamengo's directors that I will no longer wear size 10. It's up to me to accept and respect the club's command. But this will never erase the history I built with my teammates. I accept the next shirt and I will give my life on the field for Mengao until the end of our story.

I love you, Flamengo!"

In a meeting at Ninho do Urubu this Friday, Flamengo defined the punishment for Gabigoldue to the photo with the Corinthians shirt. In addition to being fined 10% of his salary, the attacker will no longer be able to wear the legendary number 10. The punishments, however, stop there. The player will normally be part of the delegation that will travel to Manaus next week.

The information is from Mauro Cezar Pereira. According to the journalist, Gabigol is not away from the cast and will continue working alongside the main group. Next Wednesday, the 22nd, Flamengo will face Amazonas, at the Arena da Amazônia, and the striker will normally travel to the Copa do Brasil game.


In the understanding of the red-black board, removing Gabigol from the long trip to Manaus would be a kind of reward for the player. During the meeting, Marcos Braz only communicated the punishments and there was no discussion with the player. In Flamengo's view, if the photo was false, as Gabriel claimed, it should have been presented.


Flamengo supervisor receives warning

In addition to Gabriel Barbosa, the punishment also extended to supervisor Márcio Santos, better known as Marcinho. The professional appears in the controversial photo behind Gabigol. According to Mauro Cezar Pereira, Flamengo will warn the supervisor due to his supervisory role. Due to his position, Márcio should be the person who, in the board's opinion, could warn and reprimand Gabriel on that occasion.
