After the triumph over Goiás, Flamengo reappeared this Thursday morning at Ninho do Urubu. The novelty was due to the new goalkeeper trainer, Rogério Maia, who started his work at the club and had all the goalkeepers available in the first activity. Among them, Santos, who had a suspected fracture on his face after a collision with Vitor Roque, but trained. The information was initially released by the “ge” portal.

The archer was not a starter in the confrontation with Goiás due to the shock and was on the bench. Matheus Cunha had the chance to be a starter and had a good performance in the victory over Esmeraldino. Both were in the first activity of the new goalkeeper coach.

The day after the game, the starters did regenerative work, while part of the group that did not participate in the game did activities on the field. Among these athletes was Gerson, who is recovering from an injury to the adductor in his left thigh, but has started the transition. The club works for him to return in the classic with Fluminense for the round of 16 of the Copa do Brasil.

In addition to him, Varela, Filipe Luís and Thiago Maia also took part in the activity. These players recover from their respective injuries: hip, left calf and quadriceps from the right loss. Matheuzinho, in turn, continues in physiotherapy recovering from surgery on his tibia.

Scorer of the first goal against Goiás, Pedro felt a discomfort in his right adductor shortly after the penalty kick. Shirt 9 performs an examination during the afternoon to have the diagnosis.


Born in Porto Alegre, Rogério Maia began his career at Internacional and played for clubs in Saudi Arabia, as well as for Coritiba, Sport, Vitória and Criciúma. In addition, he already worked at Flamengo, in 2018, when the professional team was runner-up in the Brazilian Championship.

As a goalkeeper coach at Atlético-MG, Rogério Maia had the opportunity to be Brazilian champion, Copa do Brasil, Supercopa do Brasil and three state champions. The return to the Rio de Janeiro club was a request from Jorge Sampaoli, who enjoys his work.
