The match between Flamengo and Atlético-GO continue to generate debates and discussions about arbitration, which was quite controversial. This is the case of well-known journalists who discussed the referee's mistakes on social media. Among them, Arnaldo Ribeiro and Rodrigo Mattos, who had made a post about the situation involving the flyer taken by Ayrton Lucas.

“Obviously the 'robbery, big hand' crowd won't talk about the sole in the middle from Ayrton Lucas' chest in the middle of the first half, which would result in expulsion in 99% of Conmebol games. Horrible refereeing, it was wrong in Flamengo's favor too. But people want narrative, not improving anything”, published Rodrigo Mattos, coming out in defense of Rubro-Negro.


However, Rodrigo Mattos' opinion outraged Arnaldo Ribeiro, who replied:  “Narrative is ignoring an invented penalty at 55 of the second half, which defines a match. This is an incomparable move, my dear”, accusing that Atlético-GO had been harmed in the confrontation.

MATTOS REBATE ARNALDO'S ACCUSATION


After Arnaldo accuse the game between Flamengoand Atlético GO was "bought", Rodrigo Mattos made a rejoinder recalling good journalistic practices and provoking his UOL companion.

“ Maybe in addition to arbitration, we need to discuss journalism. In the school I studied at, no one is accused of theft before investigating with evidence. I imagine, for example, that you have proof that today's judge rigged the game in Flamengo's favor. At least an AI report”, he replied.

RODRIGO MATTOS COMPARES ARNALDO TO JOHN TEXTOR


The argument used by Rodrigo made a clear reference to the owner of the Botafogo, John Textor, who recently accused the CBF of corruption in arbitration and declared that he had evidence regarding the manipulation of results, even stating that he had recordings of referees asking for bribes. However, he delivered a report prepared by Artificial Intelligence, without conclusive evidence.

Against Criciúma, Gabigol completed his seventh game in the Brazilian Championship. As a result, the attacker must remain at Flamengo until the end of the contract, in December, unless an attractive proposal emerges from the abroad until the end of the transfer window. However, President Rodolfo Landim's intention, according to MRN, is not to make any new proposal to renew the player.

The last proposal made by the board was not well received by Gabigol, resulting in an interview with his manager announcing that he would negotiate with other clubs and in the striker's absence for three matches. 

After yesterday's match, Gabigol himself expressed his dissatisfaction with the way the board treated him, stating that it was not treatment worthy of an idol. “Many things were agreed that were not fulfilled. They did not act in a good way, in my opinion, with an idol”, stated the player.


AGREEMENT NOT FULFILLED

The "things that were not fulfilled" mentioned by Gabigol refer to a five-year renewal agreement, with a total value of 12 million euros above what he currently receives. This value was agreed after negotiations with Marcos Braz and Bruno Spindel in 2023. However, Landim vetoed the signing of the contract, as he understood that Gabigol's performance during the season did not justify this investment.


PERFORMANCE IN FALL

Last year, Gabigol scored just 20 goals, his lowest number in a full season for Flamengo, and ended the year as a substitute. This drop in performance influenced Landim's decision not to renew the striker's contract for such high amounts.

FLAMENGO'S PROPOSAL TO WEST HAM

O Mais Querido signaled to West Ham that it was willing to pay approximately 15 million euros (R$89 million) to sign the midfielder. However, the English team immediately rejected the first proposal.

However, the refusal was expected by the Flamengo, who did not give up on signing Paquetá. Highlighting that, now, the directors understand that the midfielder needs to talk to the coach Julen Lopetegui and West Ham directors to discuss a way out for Mais Querido.

PAQUETÁ'S HIRING IS SEEN AS "GRAN FINALE" FOR LANDIM MANAGEMENT

Furthermore, Rubro-Negro will not give up on the midfielder easily, as internally his signing is seen as a "grand finale" of Flamengo's current management.

Even with the victory over Flamengo at Maracanã, in Rio de Janeiro, in the Brazilian Championship, the CEO of Fortaleza's SAF, Marcelo Paz, harshly criticized the refereeing of this Thursday's match (11). Paz was particularly dissatisfied with the awarding of a penalty in favor of the home team in the final stretch of the first half, which he considered a wrong decision that could have changed the course of the game.
< /p>

“As a great Ceará sports director, Fares Lopes, brother of singer Raimundo Fagner, said, form a team so as not to depend on refereeing. We won despite the arbitration. The penalty was absurd, embarrassing. The VAR had the chance to change the decision through several cameras, different angles, and it didn't do it", said Marcelo Paz. He emphasized that Fortaleza's victory occurred despite the difficulties imposed by the refereeing, which he classified as harmful and unfair.



Paz also expressed her specific dissatisfaction against the field referee, Edina Alves Batista, and the video referee. “I want to express our dissatisfaction against the field referee (Edina Alves Batista), but mainly against the video referee. This guy historically brings harm to Fortaleza, in several situations this guy tends to make mistakes against Fortaleza. I remember Corinthians, in 2019, and other cases. It's a beautiful victory. We continue”, said the CEO. His statements highlighted a history of controversial decisions against the club.


With the victory, Fortaleza reached seventh place in the Brazilian Championship, adding 26 points in 15 matches. The triumph was important for the club's aspirations in the competition, but Marcelo Paz's criticism cast a shadow over the refereeing performance. Fortaleza's next challenge will be against Vitória, on Wednesday (17), at Castelão, in Fortaleza (CE), in the 17th round of the championship.



Marcelo Paz's words echoed among fans and sports analysts, fueling a debate about the quality of refereeing in Brazilian football. The CEO's outrage reflects broader concerns about the consistency and impartiality of referees' decisions, something that continues to be a point of controversy in the sport. The victory over Flamengo, therefore, was marked not only by the result on the field, but also by the controversy off it.
