Atletico president, Sergio Coelho, was ecstatic after winning the Supercopa do Brasil, who on Sunday beat Flamengo, at the Arena Pantanal, in Cuiabá. After a 2-2 draw in normal time, with two goals from Nacho Fernandez and Hulk, Gallo won on penalties.
In an interview with Superesportes, a Galo representative referred to the controversial choice of location for the decision and sparked Flamenguisto. “With the VAR, they will find it difficult to beat Atletico.”
“It was a complicated match, with a lot of controversy. In fact, Atletico were against some decisions, some situations. We can’t forget that Flamengo were a simple guest, because they didn’t win anything. But they are in the list, and we respect the list. But Everyone watched it here today: We came to play in the Maracana in Cuiaba. Our claim, before deciding on the stadium, was Sao Paulo or Brasilia, because it was closer to Belo Horizonte and could give both teams equality,” he said.
“Anywhere in the country, except for Minas Gerais, Flamengo have a big crowd. People realize. It’s not a flaw. It’s the biggest crowd in the world. But they scored here, find out before we do. They already have a hotel reservation. In the past, we were hurt in situations much worse than this. But this time, with the VAR technology, we were able to be champions. Because the other time, Jose Roberto Wright and Jose de Assis Aragao won the whistle. Not today. With VAR Assistant, they will find it difficult to beat Atletico.”
