In the statement, Atltico expressed support for Ricardo Guimares. According to the board of alvinegra, the counselor is one of the main supporters of the rooster for over 20 years.

“On the declarations of the mayor of the capital (Alexandre Kalil), regarding the councilor Ricardo Guimares, Atltico sees himself under the duty of manifesting himself, noting that Ricardo Guimares, businessman, former president of Galo and councilor Grande Benemrito, actively participates in life of the club and one of the biggest supporters of the Atltico, for more than 20 years”, he published.

“Atltico, on behalf of its board, employees and athletes, recognizes the invaluable value that Ricardo Guimares has for Galo, and reaffirms his gratitude to our eternal collaborator,” he added.

In response, Kalil questioned Guimares’ support for Atltico, citing interest and guarantees in bank contracts made with BMG.

“For 15 years, Mr. Ricardo Guimares has been charging interest from Atltico and a real guarantee for a television contract. So, he is not an eternal collaborator, and that is easy to see. Just take the loan contracts, in addition to interest, they had real guarantees. The pseudo-doubt That Atltico has with Mr. Ricardo Guimares exclusively during his term, because in the others no president owed his bank, because they were all tied up in television contracts with the due interest and monetary correction,” said Kalil.
