Three Valencia fans were sentenced to eight months in prison in Spain for racist attacks on Vinícius Junior, in May 2023, in Mestalla stadium. Those involved were also punished with a two-year ban from entering any football stadium, in addition to fines.

LaLiga president Javier Tebas celebrated the conviction, the first of its kind in the history of football Spanish.


"This sentence is great news for the fight against racism in Spain, as it repairs the damage suffered by Vinicius Junior and sends a clear message to those people who go to a football stadium to insult that LaLiga will detect them, report them and there will be criminal consequences", said Tebas.


A return to the Mestalla

In March this year, Vinicius Junior returned to the Mestalla stadium for a new clash between Valencia and Real Madrid. The Brazilian scored both goals for the visitors in the 2-2 draw. According to a LaLiga report, Vinicius was the target of Valencia fans in at least three moments of this year's clash.


After just eight minutes , local fans sang "Vinicius, what a fool you are" and "Vinicius, how bad you are". Then, after insults against Real Madrid, the fans shouted "Tonto, tonto" and repeated "Vinicius, what a fool you are" two more times, in the 23rd minute of the first half and in the fifth minute of the second half.

To this end, according to information from the GE portal, it decided to hire executive Fred Luz, who worked at Flamengo between 2013 and 2018. The professional will be the “Chief Executive Officer (CEO)” of the São Paulo club. The announcement was made informally by Corinthians president, Augusto Melo, this Friday (21). 

Corinthians is going through a huge administrative crisis at the beginning of President Augusto Melo's administration. According to journalist Rodrigo Vessoni, from Meu Timão, around 18 directors have already left the club since the beginning of the year. The most recent departures were Rozallah Santoro, financial director, and Fernando Alba, assistant director of football.


The crisis exploded after the unilateral termination of the contract by Corinthians' master sponsor. The betting house Vai de Bet decided to interrupt its relationship with the São Paulo club after allegations of corruption in contract negotiations. Interestingly, the agreement between the black and white team and Vai de Bet triggered a clause between Flamengo and its master sponsor, Pixbet, which guaranteed that Rubro-Negro would not receive less than any national rival.

Now 70 years old, Fred Luz arrived at Flamengo in 2013, at the beginning of President Eduardo Bandeira de Mello's administration. The executive first assumed the role of marketing director, but later became CEO. At Flamengo, he is appointed as responsible for improving rights and TV agreements and structuring the fan-partner program.


Still at Flamengo, he hired foreign consultants to help with base management and prevention of injuries. In 2018, Fred Luz left Rubro-Negro to dedicate himself to the presidential campaign of João Amoedo, from the Novo party. Bruno Spindel, current executive director of football, took over as CEO at that time.

In the sights of several Brazilian football clubs, goalkeeper Hugo Souza, who has a contract with Flamengo until December 2025, could remain in Gávea. Rubro-Negro even agrees to sell the athlete, however, it will only do a deal if the proposal is advantageous to Mais Querido. That's the condition. At the moment, Santos and Corinthians are closely evaluating the archer's situation and are considering making an offer to Fla.

During last season, Hugo Souza played on loan at Chaves, in Portugal. The purchase price established by Flamengo from the Portuguese was R$1.2 million euros, which would give R$7 million for 50% of the economic rights. However, the European team did not acquire Hugo due to financial problems.


As João Paulo is injured, Santos understands that Hugo Souza is the board's plan A to be the starting goalkeeper in Series B of the Brazilian Championship. However, playing in Brazil's access division is something to be evaluated by the player's staff.


Corinthians are now thinking of Hugo as an option for the departure of their idol Cássio, who agreed with Cruzeiro. But to the newspaper O Globo, agent André Bahia denied contact with Corinthians: “We are waiting. We haven't had contact yet, nothing official.”

Hugo Souza is not a priority at Corinthians; plan A in Itaquera is Santos, ex-Flamengo

With Hugo in his sights, goalkeeper Santos, ex-Flamengo and currently at Fortaleza, is the priority at Parque São Jorge. Even if the northeastern team does not want to negotiate the athlete, the name continues to be seen as strong behind the scenes at Corinthians.

Scenario that Hugo would encounter if he remained at Flamengo

At the moment, Agustín Rossi He is a starter for Tite in the Libertadores and Brasileirão. However, Matheus Cunha is the immediate reserve and has been playing in the Copa do Brasil. If Hugo Souza stays at the club, he will have to compete for position with Cunha in this competition. But it is worth mentioning that Adenor called up Hugo for the Brazilian team during the qualifying period for the 2018 World Cup, meaning Tite's entire coaching staff knows about 'Neneca's' potential.
