Flamengo held a tactical and technical training at the Estádio Campeón Del Siglo, which belongs to Peñarol, this Thursday (25th), in Montevideo, Uruguay, in preparation for the grand final of the Libertadores 2021 against Palmeiras.
A scene starred by striker Gabigol caught the attention of red and black fans on social media.

On social networks, several Flamengo fans mentioned that Gabigol learned from Filipe Luís to respect the clubs’ shield, as the full-back even asked that a Rubro-Negro shield be removed from the floor in Fla’s locker rooms and placed on the ceiling so that athletes did not need to deviate.
