“In view of the facts, we are against the hiring of Marcelo Benevenuto, because we will never accept that the club we support and love hires players with a history of aggression against women “, states the publication.
The charge is from April 2017. At the time, the victim testified and declared that Benevenuto beat her with a punch to the face in an argument motivated by jealousy. The player was summoned and denied the charge. As this is a process involving the Maria da da Penha Law, the case is under secrecy.
The signing of the player has not yet been officially confirmed. In an interview with Rádio Bandeirantes, the president of Botofogo, Durcesio Mello, confirmed Benevenuto’s loan loan to the Tricolor de Aço. The football manager of Fortaleza, Sérgio Papelin, however, denied that there is any negotiation with the player. Wanted by Sports, the club said it will not take a stand because it is “speculation”.

In recent days circulated on the sports websites that Fortaleza negotiates the hiring of defender Marcelo Benevenuto, who belongs to Botafogo.
The said player was accused in April 2017 by his ex-girlfriend of assaulting her with a punch in the face after a discussion about the relationship. After the case was closed by the delegate of the case, the Rio de Janeiro State Prosecutor’s Office filed a complaint against Benevenuto. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there was a delay in the course of action and the process has not yet been completed.
Given the facts, we speak out against the hiring of Marcelo Benevenuto, as we will never accept that the club we support and love will hire players with a history of aggression against women.
We hope that @marcelopaz and the entire board will give up the hiring, because we will not be silent and we will not accept that they hire that player.
