+ Rest and intensity: after a vacation, Flamengo athletes break a speed record
Of the group of young people who started Carioca, only four remained with the professional: full-back Matheuzinho, defensive midfielders Gomes and Richard Rios and striker Rodrigo Muniz.
Of these, only Gomes and Muniz are still under-20, but the midfielder has been part of the main squad since last season. The striker also participated in some games for the juniors, especially in the final stretch of the Brazilian category.
Names that stood out in Carioca, such as defender Noga and left-back Ramon, returned to the under-20, but can rise at any time, according to the request of the technical committee.
It is common, for example, that some boys are called up to the top squad on certain days, depending on the need for training.
Flamengo’s sub-20 will only debut in May, with the start of the Carioca Championship of the category. Until then, the schedule consists of training to prepare for the competition. The Brazilian Championship and the Brazilian Cup are also scheduled to start in May.
In the professional squad, another addition is the presence of the right-back Klebinho. He returned on loan at the beginning of the year and was negotiating a loan with Santa Cruz, but he did not advance.
Coach Rogério Ceni asked to better observe the player, who has been training normally with the main group, but still has no definite future. The information was released by the newspaper “O Dia”.
