> New reinforcement! Understand how Flamengo had a happy ending with David Luiz
– I think every great player has space in our group. The stronger we have our group, the more possibilities we will have to conquer. Of course he is important. He’s an international player, a player at the level of the Brazilian national team, I don’t need to stay here playing confetti, talking about his resume. He is an above average player.
– But I would also like to point out that our defenders are playing very well. They went up a lot in production. That’s what I say, it’s no use having a team, you have to have a group. And every time I need the player, the player comes in, gets the job done. Of course, with the arrival of David Luiz, he is another player who will join our group. Our group is already strong, it will become even stronger because, as I said, the stronger our group, the more possibilities we have to conquer.
