Casagrande on the Vinnie Jr. case: “They lost their fear of being racist”
Brazilian Vinicius Junior was the subject of racist comments on a Spanish TV show last week, as well as being called a ‘monkey’ by Atletico Madrid fans in the Spanish capital’s derby. Casagrande says this case is another reflection of a conservative and extreme society that is not afraid to expose its prejudices.
“Racism after this wave of fascism, that the extreme right began to emerge, people lost the fear and shame of being racist, homophobic, sexist and attacking people, especially women. This is their moment. There are leaders who think the same way, this is what happens mainly in football. For me it is a reflection, there is no The world of soccer and the universe of soccer, what happens inside a soccer stadium or on television programs, which was the case of the offense against Vinicius Jr., is a reflection of a racist society.”

This is the case of Millie Lacombe, who reveals that she is excited about the way the team is developing at the moment with Diniz on the bench and Ganso as a winner in midfield.
“His return to Goss football for me is very exciting, it’s very emotional because I think Goss is a genius, I see him play and get excited, I get excited. The way he touches the ball, that he thinks about the game before the ball arrives I think this marriage Ganso and Denis was Very important for both of them, but I understand that Dennis and the way he plays is under pressure because he’s going to have to win something to continue to exist and to continue to develop. It drives the way that Dennis sees the game, tackles the game and puts a team together, so I’m a fan of that way of playing of Diniz”.

Flamengo is the best team, the first step for the team that will face Flamengo in the final is not making life easy for Flamengo. You have to do Hard life, that’s the first point, not letting Flamengo enjoy the final. But Corinthians have the conditions to be champions, yes.
