Flamengo may hire the Portuguese to clean up the house
At great risk of being sacked, Paulo Souza could say goodbye to Flamengo against Red Bull Bragantino. In this context, the board, in case of withdrawal, will formulate a radical change in the football department. According to journalist Bruno Andrade, the name José Boto is gaining momentum behind the scenes to take on the role of Marcos Braz’s right-hand man.
During his career, the 56-year-old Portuguese, who is currently the director of football for PAOK, has worked as head scout for Benfica and Shakhtar Donetsk. Thus, he could offer contracts and act as the main intermediary between the director and the cast, a role that is vacant in Flamengo.
According to journalist Vene Casagrande, José Boto was offered through Brazilian businessmen. So given the situation with Paulo Souza, Flamengo tends to analyze more pros as Rodolfo Landim has sanctioned a search for a replacement for the current coach.
“Many players understand that the methodology will not work, and the board has already understood this. At a meeting of the Football Council, Rodolfo Landim made it clear that the (directors) of football were authorized to map the market and look for possible names. It was also said at that meeting that José Boto was offered to Flamengo through Brazilian intermediaries,” he said on his YouTube channel.

On social networks, the Palestinian team posted a photo of a footballer doing physical activity, and fans expressed their desire to briefly return the steering wheel rented by Palmeiras this season.
