Everton Ribeiro's representative, Carlos Eduardo Baptista, spoke about the situation

After a long series trying to renew his contract, Everton Ribeiro bid farewell to Flamengo, as the contract that expired last December 31 was not extended. The player will sign with Bahia in the coming days and ended his stay, which lasted more than six years at Rubro Negro. On Thursday (04), midfield director Carlos Eduardo Baptista opened the match and spoke behind the scenes about the entire dialogue process with the Mingão board.

From my point of view, the negotiations were normal. Everton would have preferred to stay at Flamengo, but Flamengo did not indicate this until a year later. We even tried to set a goal to improve the contract length, but it wasn't possible. From the moment it wasn't possible, we started looking. We waited for an induction from Flamengo, they asked to wait for the results in the Brazilian League and they continued the proposal for one year. Since the end of the tournament and the end of the contract, we have listened to other clubs — Carlos Eduardo said, in an interview with Radio Globo.

We were between Internacional, who had a good offer, and Bahia, who came with a very interesting offer in terms of finances mainly due to Bahia's goals of putting together a strong team to fight there. He also had (the offer) to terminate his contract and work as an ambassador or any other position, in any case… he would have preference. I thought it was interesting in that sense – he added.

I won't say anything bad (the way Flamengo handled the negotiations). I have a great relationship with the Flamengo board and I think they have arranged everything. I don't want to blame anyone. I think some circumstances within Flamengo were responsible for this happening, but it's part of it – pointed out.

Maybe it's not the way we imagined it, but it's part of it. It's like that in football. We always work honestly. When Flamingo made an offer for one year, we looked for other offers. I don't want to get into that. I think it was the way it was. We try to work in advance, but we understand the circumstances – concluded Carlos Eduardo.
