Greatest idol in the history of Flamengo, Galinho stated that the only name missing from the list was Pedro, Rubro's top scorer. Negro in 2024, and placed the striker above Richarlison.

Alex once said a very important phrase: 'Often they are not the best, but the players the coach trusts.'

I have always respected the call-up and the choice of coaches. In the end, they decide, if things don't go well, they suffer. So, you have every right to choose the players”, said Zico, before completing with praise for Dorival:

The young right-back Wesley, from Flamengo, is in the sights of European clubs who see great potential in the player. According to information from journalist Julio Miguel Neto, several teams from the old continent are interested in a loan from Wesley, with the option to purchase at the end of the contract.

These European clubs are keeping an eye on the young man's talent athlete and believe he could adapt quickly to European football. However, Flamengo has no plans to release Wesley at this time. The absence of Varela, who will be away due to the Copa América dispute, makes Wesley's presence even more crucial for the Rio team.


FLAMENGO HAS A NEW JOB FOR WESLEY


The stance from Flamengo is clear: Wesley will only leave the club if a purchase proposal appears that he cannot refuse. Until that happens, the right-back will continue defending the red and black colors.

The Flamengo coach plans to give Wesley more opportunities in the next games. This means the player will have more time on the field and will be able to show his full potential. The expectation is that he will increasingly establish himself as an important piece in the starting team.
