Matías Viña and Wesley, full-backs of Flamengo, received surprising prominence in research carried out by the Football Observatory (CIES). The duo appears in the ranking of the “super fast” full-back categories and occupy positions on the list alongside athletes in the main leagues of world football, which also results in Mengão and Brazilian football being highlighted.

Recognized by the analyzing world football athletes, CIES put together a list of players with the highest acceleration rates per game. Given that it consists of reaching a speed equal to or greater than 10.8 km/h for at least 0.7 seconds. To enter the list, the athlete must have played at least 1,000 minutes in a national league and three quarters of these games in the same position as the analysis.

Newly signed, Matías Viña is the Flamengo player best placed in the lateral ranking. The Uruguayan left-back has an average of 12.31 accelerations per match, performing 1.63 times above the rates expected for athletes of his position and characteristics. Described as an infiltrating playmaker, that is, who is part of the creation playing in the central lane, he surprises with the number of times he reaches high speeds and has one of the highest increase rates for the position.


The Wesley, known precisely for his speed, performs 1.53 above expectations due to his characteristics. The young man reaches, on average, 11.12 times per game speeds above 10.8 mk/h. Due to his good defensive numbers, better than those in attack, Garoto do Ninho is described as a “Ground-to-air blocker”, which means an athlete with the ability to defend on the ground and in the air.

In Flamengo's last games, a notable absence was that of young talent Matheus Gonçalves. Known for his skill and potential, Matheus has been a recurring name among the club's professionals, but this time, he will take a brief break to reinforce the under-20 team. This Tuesday, the 17th, Matheus Gonçalves goes down to play for Flamengo's under-20 team in the Brazilian Championship of the category. The opponent this time will be Fluminense, in a Rio classic that promises to be intense and disputed.

The decision to lower Matheus to the under-20s is not accidental or a reflection of his performance. On the contrary, it is a strategy well thought out by Flamengo's technical committee. The idea is to give the young player more playing time and the opportunity to continue developing in a competitive environment, but with less pressure than in the first team. This type of movement is common in large clubs, which have a solid structure in the youth categories. Allowing talented players, like Matheus Gonçalves, to have more minutes on the field could be crucial to their long-term development.


A LOOK AT GONÇALVES 


For Matheus, this is an excellent opportunity to show your value and gain even more experience. In the under-20 Brasileirão, he will have the chance to face other young Brazilian football talents, in a tournament known for revealing future stars. The game against Fluminense is a true acid test. The carioca classic, even in the youth categories , carries a historic rivalry and is always a high-level confrontation. Matheus will have the chance to demonstrate his skills and help Flamengo seek an important victory in the competition.

Behind the scenes of Brazilian football, a negotiation promises to move the market: Cruzeiro is keeping an eye on Gabigol. The information was released by Rodrigo Fuscaldi, one of the country's leading sports journalists. Cruzeiro, now under the management of Sociedade Anônima do Futebol (SAF), led by Pedrinho and with Alexandre Mattos as football director, contacted Júnior Pedroso, Gabigol's manager. The objective is to sign a pre-contract with the Flamengo striker, whose contract with the Rio club ends at the end of the year.

Cruzeiro's interest in Gabigol is no surprise to anyone who follows Brazilian football. The striker is one of the most coveted names in the country, and the possibility of signing him without transfer costs at the end of his contract with Flamengo is a significant attraction for any club. Pedrinho and Alexandre Mattos are looking to strengthen Cruzeiro's squad, and the arrival of a player of Gabigol's caliber would be a big step in that direction.


FLAMENGO LEAGUE WARNING SIGN 


For the< a href="https://gazetadourubu.com/noticia/filipe-luis-destaca-exelencia-pelos-resultados-e-agradece-apoio-do-flamengo-apos-o-titleo" target="_blank"> Flamengo< /a>, Gabigol's departure would represent a considerable loss. Since arriving at the club, the striker has been one of the main players, scoring important goals and helping the team win important titles, such as the Copa Libertadores and the Campeonato Brasileiro. The attacker's renewal or departure is a central topic in Flamengo's internal discussions.

Gabigol, or Gabriel Barbosa, began his career at Santos, where he quickly stood out as one of the greatest talents in Brazilian football. His time in Europe, however, was not as successful, with spells at Inter Milan and Benfica. It was on his return to Brazil, with Flamengo, that Gabigol found his best football, becoming a fan idol and one of the most feared goalscorers on the continent.

Flamengo, one of the most traditional and popular clubs in Brazil, has just taken another important step in its marketing and sponsorship strategy. This Monday (17), The club's Deliberative Council approved, with 140 votes in favor and just three against, the renewal of the sponsorship contract with Assist Card. The new agreement is valid until December 2026 and will bring a significant increase in the club's revenue.

From 2025, Flamengo will receive R$10.8 million annually from the Assist Card, an amount that before it was R$8.5 million. This amount will be paid monthly, with the company disbursing R$900,000 per month. Furthermore, the contract provides for the possibility of adjustment in 2026 based on the Broad Consumer Price Index (IPCA), which could further increase the amount received by the club.


MILLION CONTRACT FOR FLAMENGO


According to Coluna do Fla, with this new agreement, the expectation is that Flamengo receive at least R$ 21.5 million from the Assist Card in two years. Despite the increase in sponsorship value, the brand will continue to occupy the same space on Flamengo's shirt, in the lower back bar, just below the number.

This is not the only significant adjustment to Flamengo's sponsorship contracts recently. At the end of May, Pixbet, the club's master sponsor, also substantially increased its funding. The value, which was R$85 million, will rise to R$105 million in 2024 and to R$115 million in 2025. If the automatic renewal of the contract is confirmed, Flamengo will receive R$125 million in both 2026 and 2027 .
