The president of Flamengo, Rodolfo Landim lamented what happened.

– Of course we get very sad. We don’t even know under what conditions or what happened, due to the limited information. He is an exemplary athlete, with exemplary behavior. In situations like this, it is obvious that we are going to provide full support,” he said.
