Flamengo, who started the season in an overwhelming way, now faces their worst phase in 2024. The latest disappointing performances have increased the pressure on coach Tite, with speculation about his possible dismissal before the scheduled clash against Red Bull Bragantino this Saturday (4).

Denílson, former player and commentator, expressed his concerns during his participation in Band's "Jogo Aberto" program this Friday. He stated that Tite's stay is conditional on the result of the game against Red Bull Bragantino for the Brazilian Championship. According to Denílson, a defeat could mean the end of the line for the coach.


"O Flamengo is under pressure. After booing for Tite in the Copa do Brasil, if he loses to Bragantino, he runs the risk of to be fired. That's Brazilian football. But it's not what I want, for me he has to continue because I think he's the best coach to manage Flamengo currently", declared Denílson.


FLAMENGO EXPERIENCES INCONSISTENCY

After a victory against Amazonas in the Copa do Brasil, Flamengo is preparing to face Red Bull Bragantino this Saturday, at 6:30 pm (time de Brasília), in Bragança Paulista, for the 5th round of the Brazilian Championship. The team urgently needs a victory to improve its position in the table.


In the last few games, Flamengo faced a period of unsatisfactory results, including a draw against Palmeiras and defeats to Bolívar and Botafogo. Even the victory over Amazonas was not enough to convince the critics. At Maracanã, the fans expressed their dissatisfaction with boos and insults after the game.

German champions for the first time in history and two games away from completing an entire season without suffering a single defeat, Bayer Leverkusen has become the sensation of European football despite having a salary bill similar to that of Flamengo.

According to "Capology", a website that is a reference in financial matters in international football, Atalanta's opponent in the Europa League final, today, from 4pm (Brasília time), spends 63.4 million euros (R $352.3 million) per season with player remuneration.

The value is very similar to the cost of the Flamengo squad. Last year, the richest club in Brazil used R$339 million of its budget to pay salaries. In 2024, the tendency is for this cost to rise at least a little.


Poor... for Europe

With the salary bill at the same level as of a Brazilian team, Leverkusen spends much less on the football department than clubs that were surpassed on the field by them throughout the season.

Bayern Munich, owner of a hegemony of 11 years in the Bundesliga until being beaten by Xabi Alonso's men, paying 273.4 million euros per year (R$ 1.5 billion) and salaries. The expenditure of Borussia Dortmund, Germany's representative in the Champions League decision, is around 121.3 million euros (R$ 673.3 million).


In addition to them, RB Leipzig also has a more expensive squad than the "aspirin team": 87.8 million euros (R$ 487.3 million). In other words, Leverkusen, which has already made history due to its performance in the current season, is only the fourth most expensive team in Germany.

Most expensive players

< According to "Capology", Spanish left-back Alejandro Grimaldo and Czech center forward Patrik Schick are Leverkusen's two highest-paid players. The salary of each of them (6 million euros per season, or R$33.3 million) exceeds that of any Flamengo athlete. Making history

Leverkusen's unbeaten run has now lasted 51 matches and is the longest in the history of European football.

The German team lost for the last time in their farewell to the last edition of the German Bundesliga (3-0 to Bochum, on May 27th). Afterwards, they accumulated 42 wins and had nine draws.

To complete an entire unbeaten season, Leverkusen only needs to "survive" two more games: the Europa League final and the German Cup final, against Kaiserslautern, from the second division, on Saturday.

If they don't lose any of these games (not even on penalties), Leverkusen will also close 2023/24 with three titles, as they were crowned German champions in the middle April, with five advance rounds.

Cacau Cotta, director of External Relations at Flamengo and pre-candidate for councilor in Rio de Janeiro, raised a crucial point about the relevance of politics in the administration of football clubs, especially in Flamengo. For him, politics is not only omnipresent, but also essential for the functioning and growth of these institutions.

Cotta argues that politics is inserted in all spheres of society, including sport. He explains that Flamengo's interaction with different political groups is fundamental to realizing the club's interests. To reinforce this idea, Flamengo has a specific position in its organizational structure: the executive director of Government Relations. This role is crucial to mediate the relationship between the club and the various bodies of public power.


CACAU COTTA  OPENS THE GAME AND EXPOSES BEHIND THE SCENES 

The director highlights several examples that illustrate how politics can benefit football clubs. He mentions the case of Atlético Mineiro, which re-elected Alexandre Kalil, former president of the club, as mayor of Belo Horizonte in 2020. This fact demonstrates the influence and prestige that a figure from the sporting world can have in politics.

Another example cited is Corinthians, who got the Neo Química Arena and its training center thanks to the work of Andres Sanches, former federal deputy and former president of the club. Sanches' ability to move between football and politics resulted in significant benefits for the São Paulo club.
