Accustomed to celebrating his goals by paying salute in honor of his father, Ricardo Viana, who died on account of Covid-19, Gremio striker Ricardinho was moved by the gesture of Grêmio’s colleagues, who repeated the celebration after Léo Pereira’s goal, this Wednesday, in the 2 × 2 away home against São Luiz, by Gauchão.
However, the situation led the young man from Grêmio, still in mourning for the loss, to respond to journalist Antônio Collar, who, on social media, criticized the celebration because it took place exactly on March 31, marked by demonstrations at in favor of democracy and against the dictatorship – the military coup began in Brazil on this day in 1964. On the web, Ricardinho did not take to the political side and wished the communicator’s family health:
Antônio Collar: I know it’s a tribute to Ricardinho’s father, a military policeman who died this week as a victim of Covid, but the Grêmio team is very ugly on a March 31st. And the club did not give a tweet about the date on social media.
Ricardinho: I hope your whole family is very healthy and you don’t have to go through what I am going through. God be with you!
Ricardinho thanks Grêmio colleagues
Soon after, also on Twitter, Ricardinho thanked his colleagues for the tribute received and showed emotion:
“Without words to express the gratitude I am feeling, both from the fans, from friends, from family and especially from the tribute that my companions made, they will always be in my heart, thank you all, my father deserves all of this!”, He published.
Hired from São Paulo in the middle of 2020, Ricardinho has been one of the pleasant surprises in this sprint of the season with four goals already made. He should have more chances on the professional team throughout the year.
