Marcos Braz, Flamengo vice president, spoke of Jorge Jessu’s popular departure from the Brazilian club’s technical command to return to Benfica last June.
«When Jesus told me that He wanted to leave, I already knew that it was an irreversible decision. It was not only a sporting decision but also a personal one. Jorge Jesus missed his family and Portugal, and he already had a vacuum a few months ago when he was in Saudi Arabia. Also to collaborate with him, in a more humane way, I didn’t even try to argue that he continued, ”said the Brazilian leader, on the day he spent a year winning the Libertadores against River Plate, in Lima. “I talked to him and we talked about the title”, he concluded.
