Petkovic has already left his opinion on what he believes Mais Querido should do to achieve more achievements this year. When asked about his expectations for Flamengo's 2024, during an interview with Metrópoles, Pet was content to say: "Don't repeat the mistakes of 2023", apparently little concerned or impressed with the fact that some reinforcements - and even a new coach - have joined the squad.

"At least he started the year without repeating the mistake: he didn't send the coach away. The first mistake he didn't repeat. He kept Tite. Now, with some changes. Some players leave, others come, which could be It's important, at least that's the intention, especially De la Cruz, but it needs a period of adaptation. You also need to have other players", he added, referring to the 'surprise' dismissal of coach Dorival Júnior before the start of the season. 2023.


This decision, as Pet pointed out, ended up being terrible for the team, which then changed coaches twice more in one year. Vítor Pereira and Sampaoli were huge disappointments, until Tite arrived in October. The former Brazilian team has already agreed with the plans of the red and black board, with the condition that he would be a fundamental player for the year 2024.


"So, I don't think Flamengo will allow itself to luxury of repeating last year's mistakes", concluded the star, an eternal fan idol.

2023: DISAPPOINTING YEAR

The year 2023 was very complex for Flamengo and the Rubro-Negro Nation. If everyone had high expectations, due to the team having won the Libertadores and the Copa do Brasil in the previous season (2022), everything started to go down the drain when the athletes were unable to win any of the competitions at the beginning of the year (Recopa Sul-Americana, Brazilian Super Cup, Guanabara Cup and Carioca Championship).

This pattern, unfortunately, was repeated throughout the year, with an early elimination, in the round of 16, in the Libertadores, and runner-up in the Copa do Brasil and the Campeonato Brasileiro. There were eight chances and eight defeats in one season, a number never seen before in the team's history.

According to the Arena 360 board, the dates belong to the Confederations, such as the CBF, and not the clubs, and emphasizes that the call instrument does not specify how each of the competitors must prove the number of games proposed. Arena highlighted in its proposal the commitment to hold at least 70 games.


The competitor emphasizes that the notice itself mentions the Maracanã Stadium's vocation as the World Temple of Football, and that the concessionaire should make efforts to hold as many football games as possible per year. Furthermore, it states that, throughout the analysis of the proposals, the Bidding Committee conducted the work without maintaining contact with the consortium, failing to take steps to provide clarifications.

In addition to Arena 360, Maracanã para Todos consortium , formed by Vasco and WTorre, also appealed.

On ESPN's Linha de Passe program, the performance of Flamengo against Millonarios last Tuesday (2). Thus, journalist Vitor Birner said he was "amazed" by Mais Querido's performance. He also points out that he was taken by surprise by the impact of De La Cruz's embezzlement, which caused a snowball effect.

The commentator also highlighted that it is natural for Rubro-Negro feel the absence of the player, who is the main reinforcement of the year and took over the starting role in the team. This is because the dynamism he provides makes it difficult for the opponent to mark and enhances Arrascaeta and the wingers.


“Flamengo's performance surprised me negatively, it made Millonarios look better than they really are. I have some explanations. For example: De La Cruz. With De La Cruz as the second midfield player, it is obvious that Flamengo has a lot of construction inside. When this happens, it disperses the opponent's marking. Secondly, Arrascaeta gains more space, and thirdly, the opponent starts to close inside because the volume of the game is there, leaving space on the side”, said Vitor Birner.

BIRNER HIGHLIGHTS PROBLEMS IN FLAMENGO’S MARKING


In addition to encountering difficulties with the ball, the defensive sector was also the target of criticism from the journalist. He highlighted problems in marking on the sides of the field and pointed out the difference between Bruno Henrique and Luiz Araújo in this regard. Thus, all these problems combined resulted in a “mediocre team”, according to Birner.

“But what scared me was the defensive part. You look at the cross that the ball hits the post and it's a lot of freedom. Poorly made coverage, spaces on both sides. And there's another detail, Bruno Henrique is more of a player than Luiz Araújo, but Luiz can recover better for physical reasons. So, it starts to have several defensive impacts, which this team was not used to dealing with. With a mediocre team at best, which is Millonarios. “

REASON FOR DE LA CRUZ'S DISMISSAL


Last Tuesday (2), Nicolás De La Cruz was not removed from the bench due to having presented a viral condition and fever. The midfielder was even listed for the clash, but would start as a reserve. However, he ended up staying at the hotel with the doctors from Mais Querido. Therefore, the expectation is that he could be available for the Carioca final, against Nova Iguaçu.
