In recent days, speculation has been reported about a possible interest by Rogério Ceni in taking Diego Ribas to São Paulo. According to information circulated in the media, the newly hired Tricolor coach would be interested in taking the shirt 10 from Flamengo.
Faced with news on the subject, the player’s stafe spoke about the matter. In contact with the RaFla Mello channel, one of the businessmen said that there is no possibility for the captain to head to São Paulo, and the information has no basis.
— Unfounded news. I believe someone is in need of controversy.
It should be noted that Diego Ribas already has a contract renewal underway with Flamengo. The midfielder, as well as Filipe Luís and Diego Alves, will have their relationship extended at least until the end of 2022.
Out of the games for almost a month, the last time Diego took the field was on September 26, when Mais Querido drew 1-1 with América-MG for the Brasileirão. Since then, he has only been listed for one match and has been sidelined from the others due to a muscle injury.
The player is one of the team members who will be available to Renato Gaúcho for tonight’s duel (20) against Athletico. The first leg for the semifinals of the Copa do Brasil will take place soon, at 9:30 pm (Brasilia time), at the Arena da Baixada.
