Of the four reinforcements hired by Flamengo in 2024, only one has managed to win the title so far: De la Cruz. However, another Uruguayan name begins to stand out and compete for space: Matías Viña. With a goal and an assist in a week, the left-back demonstrated efficiency when called upon, intensifying the competition for the position with Ayrton Lucas.

Viña was unfazed by criticism after a missed goal on his debut as starter, in the 1-1 draw against Millonarios, in Colombia. Against Bolívar, at the altitude of La Paz, the Uruguayan scored the goal that brought Flamengo back into the game after conceding a goal in the first minute.


In the classic against Botafogo, Ayrton Lucas was chosen as a starter, leaving Viña on the bench until the final minutes of the 2-0 defeat. However, in the 1-0 victory over Amazonas, at Maracanã, the Uruguayan was not only decisive with a perfect cross for Pedro's goal, but also stood out as the best on the field on a night where the performance of the rest of the team was questionable.


FLAMENGO HAS A DISPUTE ON THE EXPLORED LEFT SIDE 

< Viña's performance has gained recognition, especially from coach Tite, who observes in the player an offensive characteristic distinct from that of Ayrton Lucas: the ability to attack spaces by supporting himself from the inside. This was evident in the play with Bruno Henrique, in which the winger remained open while the Uruguayan advanced towards the baseline, resulting in an assist for Pedro.

Matías Viña's upward trajectory at Flamengo has generated debates about the dispute for left-back, with many fans considering the Uruguayan as a valid option for the starting line-up. Meanwhile, Ayrton Lucas needs to maintain his level of performance to avoid losing his position to the emerging competitor. The performance of both players will continue to be closely watched as the season progresses and competitions intensify.

Flamengo made a decision that generated discussion between fans and the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF). The Rio club decided not to release young Lorran, who is already part of the main squad, for the Brazilian under-20 team's training sessions at Granja Comary, scheduled to take place between the 3rd and 11th of June. This decision was communicated by Flamengo's vice-president of football, Marcos Braz, and justified by the athlete's need in the main squad.

According to Braz, Lorran's presence in the main group of Flamengo makes their participation in training with the youth teams unnecessary. "It doesn't make sense to release the athlete who is already in the main squad to participate in training for youth teams," he said. The manager's position reflects Flamengo's priority in having all of its most promising players in the main team, especially in a decisive phase of the competition calendar.


FLAMENGO OPENS THE GAME

The decision to keep Lorran at Flamengo and not answer the call for the under-20 team has its justifications. The club is going through a crucial moment in the season, competing for important titles and needing a complete and competitive squad. Lorran's absence from training could negatively impact Flamengo's preparation for the challenges to come.

The expectation now is about the CBF's response. O Flamengo believes that the entity will understand the situation and will be understanding of the club's decision. "Flamengo hopes that the CBF understands our position. We have total respect for the Brazilian team and its projects, but we need to make decisions thinking about the best for the club and the player", added Braz.


This stance of Flamengo reveals a tendency for Brazilian clubs to prioritize their interests in relation to the youth teams, especially when it comes to players who are already integrated into the main squad. The dispute between the interests of clubs and the call-ups of youth teams is a recurring theme in Brazilian football, often generating tensions between the parties involved.

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.
