Botafogo forwards signing of Chinese football striker

In the midst of preparing for the 2023 season, Botafogo is close to signing striker Davidson Pereira, who plays for Wuhan Three Towns, in China. The information was provided by journalist Lucas Mello, from 'Correio do Povo'.

The player is requested by coach Luís Castro and Glorioso even tried to hire him in April 2022, but there was no progress. The athlete has a contract with the Chinese club until the end of 2023.

Davidson Pereira is 31 years old and can play as a striker on both sides and also centrally. The Brazilian had a spell at Fortaleza in 2014 and has played for several clubs in Portugal.


Juventude announces loan signing of right-back from Athletico-PR

Youth  announced, this Tuesday afternoon (6), his seventh reinforcement for the 2023 season, targeting Gauchão, Copa do Brasil and Série B. Right-back Dani Bolt, 23, arrives for loan from Athletico-PR. In 2022, the athlete played for Vitória-BA, in the Series C dispute.

The player was formed in the youth teams of Fluminense, where he caught the attention of Athletico-PR and transferred at the beginning of the year. Following the season, he was loaned to Vitória-BA.

— I am very happy to arrive at Juventude and be able to wear this shirt. I know the club's history and strength, and the references were the best regarding the structure, organization and people who make the day to day. So, I'm sure we'll have a year of achievements, with a lot of work and dedication - highlighted the athlete.

Dani Bolt is already in Caxias do Sul, where he will start pre-season training in the coming days. In addition to the right-back, Juventude has already announced the signing of the goalkeeper Lucas Wingert, of defenders Ze MarcosGerardo Gordillo e Felipe Carvalho, from left-back Alan Ruschel e of the flywheel Emerson Santos.


Juventude forwards signing of Athletico's right-back for 2023

Juventude is planning to hire right-back Dani Bolt in 2023. The player, who belongs to Athletico, defended Vitória's colors in Série C and in the Brasileiro de Aspirantes and will arrive at Estádio Alfredo Jaconi on loan until the end of the next season.

At 23 years old, the winger fits the profile outlined by the management. In addition to not representing a high cost to the club as he is a loan signing, the athlete increases the physical size in the team, a point that coach Celso Roth said was necessary for the Series B dispute.

Revealed in the youth teams of Fluminense, Bolt remained in Laranjeiras until the last year. In 2022, he transferred to Athletico, being used in six matches of the Campeonato Paranaense. Soon after, with little space among the professional cast of Hurricane, he was loaned to Vitória. At the club from Bahia, he played nine games between Série C, Copa do Brasil and Brasileiro de Aspirantes.

The search for yet another alternative for the right-back highlights the unlikely scenario for Rodrigo Soares to remain, a starter for most of the competition. Despite the bad alviverde campaign, the player stood out as one of the most regular names and should be harassed in the market.


Selection: Tite confirms team with Militão and Fred against Switzerland

The Brazilian team goes to the field against Switzerland, at 1 pm (Brasília), with the lineup that ge anticipated on Sunday: Alisson; Militão, Marquinhos, Thiago Silva and Alex Sandro; Casemiro, Fred and Paquetá; Raphinha, Richarlison and Vinicius Junior.

With the earlier draw between Cameroon and Serbia 3-3, Brazil will qualify for the round of 16 if they beat Switzerland. On Friday, the team will end the group stage against Cameroon, at 4 pm (Brasília time).


Militão and Rodrygo are Tite's first options for Danilo and Neymar.

With only two trainings to go before the second round da world Cup, Tite thinks of Éder Militão and Rodrygo as substitutes for the injured Danilo e Neymar. The next game is on Monday (28), at 1 pm (Brasília time), against Switzerland.

Thus, Brazil would be selected as follows: Alisson; Militão, Marquinhos, Thiago Silva and Alex Sandro; Casemiro, Lucas Paquetá and Rodrygo; Raphinha, Vini Jr and Richarlison.

The formation with Militão and Rodrygo from the beginning is the preference of Tite and his coaching staff for this Monday's match, according to UOL Esporte. Militão is a defender, but has characteristics much closer to Danilo than competitor Daniel Alves. Rodrygo, on the other hand, is a striker and has been training in Neymar's position throughout the selection's preparation period for the World Cup. In this way, he starts ahead of Fred, Bruno Guimarães and Everton Ribeiro for the title



Five days before the start of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Jornal da Band did an exclusive interview with defender Éder Militão, who is born in São Paulo's academy and also plays well at right-back, when needed._cc781905- 5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_

When asked about 'getting the title in trouble' due to the fight for the title, the defender replied: "It's always good to put a 'flea' in Tite's ear, there are many players with good quality like Thiago and Marquinhos, and it's always good to have this versatility.” 

At another point, he joked about Thiago Silva: “He doesn't get tired, he's almost 40 years old and he won't let us play”, fired. 

When talking about the group, Militão declared that: “People are happy, willing to play, I think this Cup can be good for us. I'm really looking forward to it, it's been a dream for years. There's so little time left to make it a reality, I'm going to compete in a World Cup and, God willing, bring that title.”

This year, many new athletes were called up, and the player spoke about the presence of young people to help Neymar: “With this crop that is coming, I think it helps him a lot. It ends up helping, he becomes calmer. The union we have become, especially with the younger ones, we manage to make it very strong.”


With the summons of Rodrygo, Éder Militão and Vinícius Júnior to a World Cup in Qatar, Real Madrid entered the top-10 of the clubs that most lent players to the Brazilian national team for the competition. The merengue trio joins Roberto Carlos (3x), Cicinho, Robinho, Ronaldo, Kaká, Marcelo (2x) and Casemiro. 

Among the clubs with the most squads in the 21st century, Real Madrid took off second-placed Inter Milan. Now, the Meringue club has 12 representatives, while the Italians have stagnated at eight players. Barcelona, rivals of Real, and PSG equaled Internazionale in this ranking, with the presence of Raphinha, Marquinhos and Neymar. 

Barcelona is another club that clearly illustrates the growth of European teams in the selection's selections, since the 1990 World Cup. With Raphinha, the team ties with Cruzeiro in eleventh place, with 11 summoned, and is only one player away from matching Atlético-MG and enter the top-10. 

In all, 70 clubs from different countries have already loaned players to Brazil in the history of the World Cup, but nobody has more squads than Botafogo. General Severiano's club had 47 representatives in the Brazilian national team. The last one was goalkeeper Jefferson, in 2014. 

With the summons of Pedro and Éverton Ribeiro, Flamengo tied with Vasco in the ranking of clubs that most lent players to the selection. Palmeiras, with Weverton, overtook its rival Corinthians and now appears seventh on the list. Botafogo will not lose the lead to São Paulo, which had no representatives. 

For the first time in history, Pumas, West Ham and Newcastle, with Dani Alves, Lucas Paquetá and Bruno Guimarães, provided players for the Brazilian team in World Cups. Another club that is debuting on this list is Manchester United, which now has three athletes in Brazil in world competitions. Casemiro, Fred and Antony are among the 26 selected by Tite.


The player Éder Militão was summoned by coach Tite for the Brazilian National Team, which disputes the sixth in the Qatar Cup.

Two teams are fighting for the Chinese title and have Brazilians as a standout. See how the point-to-point and goal-to-goal dispute for the title is going.

First of all, it is not new that Chinese football imports Brazilian players to its league. Certainly, many of them have already been successful in Terra da Muralha, like Elkeson, Aloísio, Renato Augusto, Paulinho and some still do, like Oscar. But the fight for the Chinese title has Brazilians as a highlight and this time it's others.

In summary, two teams fight directly, and point by point, for the Chinese title. On one side is Wuhan Three Towns, which leads with 56 points, 18 wins, two draws and three defeats. There are also 67 goals scored and 19 conceded in 23 games, with a balance of 48 goals.

On the other hand, Shandong Taishan has the same amount of points, wins, draws and defeats, losing in the tiebreaker only in goals scored, as it has the same amount of goals conceded. Thus, it has 54 goals scored and 35 on balance. Check out the Brazilians who have been standing out.


In the second training session in France, coach Tite assembled the Brazilian team that will face Ghana in a friendly this Friday, at the Oceane stadium, in Le Havre, at 3:30 pm - Brasília time.

In the activity, the coach put Éder Militão on the right side. The defender has already played as a full-back at São Paulo and also at Porto, but has been Real Madrid's starting defender for the last two seasons.

Danilo, the only right-back called up, participated in the activity in the reserve team. Tite, in the summons, had said that could use Militão or Ibañez in the position.

In the team's operation, Paquetá left on the right with Raphinha on the right, with Vini Jr and Richarlison on the left. Neymar, positioned behind the quartet, was responsible for the creation.


Davidson (striker) - 31 years old - Contract with Wuhan Three Towns until 12/31/2023 - Market value: 3.2 million euros (R$ 17.6 million) - Passage through Fortaleza and Portuguese teams


Among the guaranteed names of the selection in the World Cup that starts in just over two months is defender Éder Militão. Revealed by São Paulo, highlighted in Porto and undisputed holder of Real Madrid. The defender's career has had basically perfect projection. In an exclusive interview with the column, he did not hide that he has hopes of starting in Qatar and detailed the particularities between Ancelotti and Tite.

Since arriving in Porto, Éder Militão has been one of the main players in the Real Madrid team. His first European club was Porto, when he was sold by São Paulo. After spending a year in the Portuguese team, the winger, who also plays as a defender, was transferred to the Merengues.

Éder Militão has a contract with Real Madrid for 6 seasons, and has already won great titles at the club. The list is extensive: La Liga in 2019–20, 2021–22; Spanish Super Cup in 2019–20, 2021–22; UEFA Champions League in 2021–22 and UEFA Super Cup in 2022.

From the back to the side!

Militão's relationship with the Brazilian national team began in 2018, when he had a good season at Porto. Tite called the player up for the friendlies against the United States and El Salvador in place of Fagner (Corinthians), cut off by injury.

Militão made his debut in the 5-0 defeat of El Salvador on September 11, and since then he has not been called up by the coach of the Brazilian national team. In all, he has 23 games for Amarelinha and one goal. 2021 was the year in which he played the most matches with the green and yellow jerseys. 


Although the mini season in the Mentawai Islands of Bahian surfer Gabriel Leal, 13, his father Alexandre, mother Gerusa and sister Júlia, 7, has come to an end, the family left for the region of Bali, Indonesia, in early August.


There wasn't even time to unpack the bags and five days later Alê, Gabi and three friends left for Lakey Peak, in Sumbawa. Before, father and son even surfed the perfect and popular waves of Uluwatu, Bail's most famous peak.


But the duo wasted no time. He formed a boat and drove to fun Lakey Peak. Gerusa and Juju stayed in Bali and father and son left for another great adventure, in search of the waves.


Look, it was ground, from Bali to Leaky. “We left Bali and took a ferry for over six hours to Lombok. Then we followed another two and a half hours on the road, we took another ferry for two hours, to Sumbawa Island. From there, we drove another six hours to Lakey Peak”, says Alexandre Leal.


It's true that the Mentawai Islands are a surfer's dream, from anywhere in the world. But going to the Bali region and Sumbawa isn't exactly a pain in the ass either. Far from it.


Although it does not have the tranquility and, shall we say, the exclusivity of the Mentawai, Bali also has excellent waves and offers a multitude of other cultural attractions, in addition to the proximity to many islands with excellent waves.


Lakey Peak is an excellent place for surfing different types of waves on the same beach. For Gabriel, a competitive surfer, the region is a full plate. Rights and lefts, short and tubular, long and manoeuvrable. It is a wave to the taste of the customer. And the kid has been having fun and training hard.


Atlético agreed to hire 12-year-old attacking midfielder Pedro Pit, who was at Flamengo's base. Pit is treated as a phenomenon and even so young, it is already sponsored by the German giant Adidas.

Pit will reinforce the Under-13 category of the Rooster and on his Instagram, he celebrated the new step in his career: “Many thanks to the giant @atletico for believing in my dream, thank you generation 2009 and all the coaching staff for welcoming me with open arms, I promise to give my best," he said.

Born in Flamengo, the boy said he was not happy at Gávea: “Despite dedicating myself immensely to Flamengo, I was unhappy for being prevented from playing in the face of the maturation process (which naturally happens in my life and in that of all young athletes) ”, he concluded.

Militão 2028: another renovation at Real Madrid closed... and signed

Eder Militao (24 years old) renewed with Real Madrid  until 2028, an extension that, like those of Vinicius (2027) and Rodrygo (2028), was signed in July of this year, before the trip to the United States. The previous link extended until 2025, with which the agreement, whose foundations were laid in Manchester, in the first leg of the semi-finals of the Champions League, shows both the growth of the defender and the confidence of the sporting direction in him.

The Brazilian established himself in the last season and a half in the European elite, which he arrived from below, showing his fighting character, from the beginning at the Santiago Bernabéu it was not easy. Now he is undisputed and his performance has earned him a considerable salary increase: from 3.5 million, around 4 with bonuses, to 7 more variables ​​per season.

He also increased his release clause, which is 500 million euros. Real Madrid will thus drive away suitors of the former Porto player, the most outstanding player of recent months, Chelsea impedido due to the change in ownership in the organization and the footballer's desire to continue wearing white.

As MARCA reported in relation to those of Vinicius and Rodrygo, the idea is to officially announce the renewal of Militão after the pre-season tour. The most expensive defender in history (50 million euros; "I showed why I am", he told MARCA on his vacation in Ibiza) of the organization, who has just become a father for the first time, will seek to end a great 2022 with the dispute and conquest of his first World Cup, in Qatar from November.


There is no doubt, Real Madrid have the best squad in LaLiga


Comparing line by line, the merengue team outperforms its local rivals, including FC Barcelona. 

Europe's top football leagues are already warming up. The best clubs on the continent are preparing to face an atypical season, with the World Cup do Qatar 2022  at sight. In Spain today this happens mainly because of what Real Madrid and FC Barcelona do, the two biggest clubs in LaLiga, and which aspire to the same, but different objectives at the same time. The madridistas want to maintain supremacy in the regular tournament, but also in the Champions League, while the Catalans are looking to revive old laurels in both competitions, with new faces to satisfy Xavi Hernández's requests. 

Barça's sporting project is very different from that of its rival. The whites live in a reality, while the Azulgranas live in a world of illusions, waiting for the bell to ring with the make-up they are doing in the squad, with a planning that is far from being consistent with the economic shortages in which they live for two years, as a result of mismanagement and waste.


Days in Paradise: Gabriel Leal continues his adventure saga in Indonesia

A 13-year-old surfer enters his first 60 days of technical improvement and family adventures in Indonesia.

Surf, paradisiacal landscapes, warm and crystalline waters and many discoveries and learnings. This has been the routine of Bahian surfer Gabriel Leal (13 years old) and his family during the first two months in Indonesia. He and his father Alexandre are preparing for a two-week surfing adventure on the waves of Macaronis, considered the most fantastic in the entire Indian Ocean.
The wave is on the other side of the Mentawaii Islands, where they have been for about a month. The Leal family left for Indonesia in May for a five-month stay. Gabriel, Alexandre, Gerusa and Júlia (Gabriel's mother and sister) spent the first month in Nias, on the island of Sumatra, where they interacted a lot with the local community and also caught a lot of waves.
Mentawai is a place completely focused on surfing. The structure of the resort where they are staying is geared towards sports fans and there are the waves most desired by surfers from all over the planet. Gabriel has been training a lot, especially in the waves of Lances Left, where he has been perfecting his technique in maneuvers and tubes. “He has evolved a lot in this period. We noticed his surfing with much more line and strength”, explains Alexandre, who is not only his father but also his coach.
Perfect waves – This week, Gabriel and his father are off to a mini season in the most perfect waves on the planet. Macaronis is a rare pearl, in a place with countless gems in terms of waves. Access is exclusive for those arriving by boat (which cannot stay anchored for more than two days) and for those staying at the resort of the same name. “It is the best left in the world. I can't wait to surf those waves”, comments Gabriel Leal. The estimate is to stay from 8 to 10 days on site.


Real Madrid continues with intense pre-season training

Under the command of Carlo Ancelotti, Real Madrid is working hard for the 2022-23 season.


Tite accompanies São Paulo vs Palmeiras alongside Militão at Morumbi

The coach of the Brazilian national team, Tite, accompanied the classic entre Sao Paulo e Palmeiras, this Monday, at Morumbi, alongside defender Éder Militão, a Real Madrid player and revealed by the youth teams of Tricolor. Assistant coach César Sampaio was also there.

The technical commission of the national team has taken advantage of the last games in the capital of São Paulo to observe some players. Last Sunday, Tite and César Sampaio were at Neo Química Arena for Corinthians x Goiás.

Militão, in turn, is on vacation from Real Madrid and took the opportunity to visit the stadium where he took his first steps as a professional player. He is constantly summoned by Tite in the national team.


The player was sold by Sao Paulo ao Porto in 2018. In 2019 he transferred to Real Madrid in a deal that earned Tricolor around R$ 25 million.

Éder Militão celebrates winning season for Real Madrid

In his third season for Real Madrid, defender Éder Militão finally managed to emerge and be one of the highlights of the Spanish team. Alongside the Austrian David Alaba, the Brazilian managed to form a solid and reliable defensive system under the command of Carlo Ancelotti. Closing the season with the Champions League title, Militão highlighted his joy for a victorious season.

In addition, the Brazilian managed to get rid of some criticism for his irregular performance at Real Madrid. Hired from Porto in 2019, Éder Militão had not yet managed to justify the investment of around 50 million euros made by the merengue club. With the good performances, the Brazilian believes he managed to repay all the trust.

— I justified the investment, yes. When I arrived, things were not going well because the team had two defenders (Sérgio Ramos and Raphael Varane) in front of me, who had played together for a long time. Now, being able to play frequently, I really demonstrated the reason for my transfer to Real Madrid – said Militão to the Spanish newspaper “Marca”.

At the age of 24, the Brazilian was launched by coach Carlo Ancelotti precisely to be a protagonist in the face of the departures of Ramos, who went to Paris Saint-Germain and Varane, now a Manchester United player. With the arrival of Alaba, after the end of his contract with Bayern Munich, understanding in the defensive system was very high and yielded positive results for Real Madrid.

— Carlo Ancelotti is a great coach. He helps us a lot and also respects the decisions of the players. Talks a lot in training. In addition to being an excellent professional, he is a very fun person and always tries to be close to all the players – evaluated Militão.

In the current season, the Brazilian made 51 appearances for Real Madrid, having scored two goals and contributed two assists. This was Militão's best season at the Meringue club and the Brazilian hopes to continue appearing frequently. In November, the defender could be one of the players called up by the Brazilian national team for the World Cup in Qatar.


It has potential! Eric Pimentel gains space at Vasco while the defender does not arrive

Vasco is looking for a defender to close the hiring cycle for the Brazilian Championship Series B dispute. After all, the starters Anderson Conceição and Juan Quintero were questioned by the fans after their bad campaign in the Copa do Brasil and Campeonato Carioca. With that, coach Zé Ricardo may have to look for a homemade solution in the future. found that 19-year-old Eric Pimentel will be part of the activities at least until Vasco's debut in the Brasileirão in Série B. The match will be next Friday, at 7 pm, in São Januário, against Vila Nova. At first, the player should be one of the options on the bench. Defender Eric Pimentel has been in the main team's training for two years. Since then, he has been treated as a promise by the Vasco directorate. Therefore, he will be observed by Zé Ricardo's technical commission. The defender stands out for his refined technique, aerial game, precise tackle, ball output and good vision of the game.

Zé Ricardo has yet to confirm whether Eric Pimentel will be promoted definitively. However, there is information running behind the scenes at the club that the coach sees potential and personality in the athlete to face the tough Marathon of Série B.

Meanwhile, executive director Carlos Brazil evaluates some names offered to Vasco in search of a “market opportunity” and, above all, a player who understands Cruzmaltina's financial reality.


Vasco Under-20 defender shines in winning the Guanabara Cup and projects himself as a promise of the club

Eric Pimentel was one of the few 'full-time' starters in the draw against Bangu, which secured the championship at the beginning of the month

Between one defense and another on the pitch, charges and responsibilities for dribbling off the pitch. That's how defender Eric Pimentel, just 19 years old (eight of them in football), has traced the route that turned him into one of Vasco da Gama's promises for the future of the sport. Born in the West Zone of Rio de Janeiro, the athlete is one of the stars of the alvinegro team in the Sub-20 modality and, at the beginning of the month, he was essential for the “boys of the Hill” to win the Guanabara Cup. Now, he dedicates efforts to repeat the feat in the Carioca Championship, which is already in the quarterfinals. 

— Being young and playing football requires us to mature much faster than normal. Especially in my case, since I know what I want: a consolidated career as a high-level professional. And with struggle and faith I know I will get there. I intend to play on many green carpets,” says Eric, who is managed by UJ Football Talent, whose roster includes stars like Éder Militão (from Real Madrid and the Brazilian National Team) and Vitão (from Shakhtar Donetsk, currently on loan to Internacional).  

In the search for excellent results for himself and the group, Pimentel accepted the challenge of leaving Vasco's professional qualification, temporarily, to join the Sub-20 and help conquer Guanabara. The draw with Bangu on the 1st, enough to distance Vasco da Fluminense, indicated that the sportsman made a good choice: he was one of the only starters kept from start to finish by coach Igor Guerra._cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b -136bad5cf58d_

— “I went down” (for U-20) with more confidence and experience. I was able to add a lot to the team, always and in the hope of taking the title - comments Eric, amending projections for Carioca: - We are a strong group and we have everything to repeat the good results.

Among so many boys who dream of becoming soccer players since they were little, Pimentel believes he was privileged to find good opportunities along the way. He was born in the Campo Grande neighborhood and raised nearby, in Santa Cruz, before reaching his professional career in São Januário, in the North Zone of Rio de Janeiro. If he could give advice to peers his age, he would say that dedication, responsibility and grit are the secrets themselves. 

— I carry these values and, with them, my mother's name, Elaine — ends the player, remembering Elaine, whose loss he suffered two years ago: — I dedicate all my games to her.

Meet the only black entrepreneur in football's elite

May 13 marks the official date of the abolition of slavery in Brazil. Today it is known that the signing of the Lei Áurea is one of the formalities that most distort history, highlighting characters who were never on the front lines of battle. And is it possible to celebrate something? In the midst of such a racist society, football is no exception. And today we are going to meet the only black-skinned businessman in the football elite. He is Brazilian! Ulysses Jorge was born in Itaboraí, a municipality with a mostly humble population and located in the metropolitan region of Rio de Janeiro. He studied until the 3rd grade of elementary school, along with his sister, and was raised by his mother. He left home at 12 to play for Palmeiras. He was approved in the test by Flávio Teixeira, ''Mursa'', former assistant to Luiz Felipe Scolari, became a professional at the club and won.

He was not a successful player. According to him, because of the wrong choices he made in his youth. But win! Even to show the athletes who manage today what should be done or not when fame starts to arrive. He won by representing his origins and his skin color in an exclusively white and elitist universe! '' I heard a very annoying joke. They refer to me as a piece of dominoes. Black with white ink. People hear that and try not to moralize racism, but it's hard. My mom is upset, she's feeling sick... My sister talks a lot for me to focus only on what really matters. My girlfriend supports me... I have a God who works miracles, I believe in him and this has happened in my life. Getting to where I am today was very difficult. She was crying in the rain and getting terrible energy. Racism hurts a lot, but I got over it,'' he says. My mother gets angry, feels sick... My sister talks a lot so that I can concentrate only on what really matters. My girlfriend supports me... I have a God who works miracles, I believe in him and this happened in my life. Getting to where I am today was very difficult. I cried under the shower and received terrible energy. Racism hurts a lot, but I got over it'', he says.

''I started bothering a lot of people in the business when I stood out. I'm sure it's something planted, so much so that not all communication vehicles have embarked on this. They saw that he didn't have much credibility. Best of all is receiving messages from parents of athletes we manage. From the beginning they showed support and believed in my character. This is priceless. Other entrepreneurs have tried to burn me with this. There are guys in the market for 30 years, then an uneducated black man comes along and competes with them for space. This shocks'', complete. 

Agent of several black players in the professionals and in the youth divisions, Ulisses usually talks with the athletes so that they have balance if they suffer from racism in the games, but he believes that unfortunately this will not end. ''I honestly don't think that's going to change. The higher the level you are able to reach in society, the greater the perception. It's like the person accepts you for the hair you can offer, but doesn't want you in their world. I am happy when I hear from parents of athletes that my story inspires them.  They know that my origin is the same as theirs, if they identify themselves, and set an example for their children.'' In a universe of great protagonists close to the field, it is necessary to think, debate, demand and provide opportunities for things to be the same even off the pitch. The number of black leaders, businessmen, coaches and journalists involved in football is tiny!


Pimentel reveals expectations for the Classic of the Millions: “Special”

Returning to the Under-20 team after a period in the professional group, defender Pimentel is one of the pillars of the team that leads the Guanabara Cup alongside Flamengo, with 11 points gained in five games played. And this Friday (29/4), they meet in the classification phase, at 9:30 am, in Gávea. The number 3 spoke about the week of work and about the expectation for the first Classic of the Millions of the year.

– Playing a classic is always special. We know the importance of this match, which can lead us to the lead in case of victory. The group is very united and concentrated. The work week was very intense, professor Igor Guerra gave us a lot of content. We studied the opponent well and hope to play a great game, with a great performance - said the defender.

Pimentel also spoke about the period in which he was working with the professional group. Right after the Cup match, in January, he was requested by Zé Ricardo's Technical Commission and spent a few months training with the main team. In addition to him, several players from the base categories have participated in training during the season, the practice is a way to facilitate the transition of Meninos da Colina:

– Being in Vasco’s professional team will always be a dream. In these months that I spent there, I was able to acquire a lot of knowledge, experience, I tried to assimilate all kinds of information. I know that working, dedicating myself every day, the time will come.
