In the post, the club played with the character of the comics Cebolinha, who changes the letter “R” for “L”.
“A champion of America whose story no longer fits in the comic book. Coming from Maracanaú, he now makes his home the Maracanã, with the biggest in the world. Tell the chef that everything is seasoned and the contract is signed!”
On his Instagram profile, Everton, who will wear shirt 19, also made his announcement, including a phrase that became famous in Ronaldinho Gaúcho’s presentation in Gávea:
Everton announces that he is from Flamengo on his social networks: “Now I am Mengão”
In a video released by the club, Everton visited the facilities at Ninho do Urubu and greeted his new teammates. Gabigol hugged and joked:
– Against me is a lion. I want to see it now (laughs).
