The contraction of Jorge Jesus, in July 2019, occurred in the pre-pandemic scenario. The shorter budget was one of the reasons why Flamengo could not find a replacement like the Portuguese Leonardo Jardim, for example, when JJ returned to Portugal in 2020.
At the time, we were already experiencing the pandemic of the new coronavirus, with a drop in revenue, with no fans in the stadiums. Domènec Torrent was hired and one of the reasons for choosing the Catalan was the fact that he adapted to what the club offered. Just like Rogério Ceni and Renato gaucho Portaluppi.
With the imminent departure of the coach defeated by Palmeiras de Abel Ferreira, managers will have to look for another professional. But before making a move, they will have to define the budget for the new coaching committee for the 2022 season.
The football department wants to get back to what was destined for the coach and his team before the pandemic. Something around 4 million euros and 5 million euros per year, or approximately R$30 million per season.
If president Rodolfo Landim gives the green light to offer something in this range to the future technician, contacts will take place. Obviously some unofficial probing could take place at any time. But only when the value is defined can a proposal be presented.
