understand the controversy
Paulo Sousa was fired from Flamengo after the 1-0 defeat to Red Bull Bragantino for the Brazilian Championship on the 9th of June. Since then, the coach and the club continue with an impasse over the Portuguese’s contract termination.
According to the newspaper O Globo, Flamengo went back on the agreement with the coach to pay the termination fine.
Last Friday (17), the red-black legal department would have sent documentation with different numbers to those that had been adjusted, suggesting a discount on the payment due. Such an attitude would have irritated the Portuguese, who was still in Rio de Janeiro to resolve pending issues.
According to the newspaper, the coach is considering taking the club to FIFA. Rubro-Negro owes the coach’s salaries until December, an amount that is around R$ 6 million, not counting what it needs to pay the members of the commission.
