“I liked it and I liked it a lot. I was afraid that Rogério would flirt with the positional game again, put Bruno Henrique stuck on the left, Everton Ribeiro stuck on the right and things he said in an interview until he likes it , but to my surprise and to my joy, today I saw Flamengo very similar to Jorge Jesus’ team, a team moving around all parts of the pitch, with high turnover “, says Renato.
“Now you saw Gerson on the left, now you saw Gerson on the right, Everton Ribeiro was also venturing on the left, Bruno Henrique fell on all sides of the field, very interesting pass exchanges, a rehearsed play, look, Rogério Ceni finally presents a play rehearsed in a free kick in which he does the survey on the area, yes, but not for those who are there in the cake, but for Filipe Luís, who enters alone on the left side, Filipe Luís misses a header and lost the goal, but it showed there that something is being rehearsed “, he completes.

Flamengo’s defensive line today played at Bangu’s intermediate, with Jesus playing in the midfield, Rogério Ceni took a step forward, put it in the opponent’s intermediate.
