Flamengo unlikely to renew Aírton deal

Aírton is rapidly falling from grace at the Rio club
Benfica holding midfielder Aírton, on loan at Flamengo until June 2012, is unlikely to have his deal at the Rio de Janeiro club renewed, as it appears Manager Vanderlei Luxemburgo has lost patience with the player's indiscipline.

Aírton, having served a four-match ban for an act of aggression on Souza in the Fla-Flu derby, wss then dismissed in the embarrassing 4-0 home Copa Sudamericana defeat to Universidad de Chile this month.

Vanderlei Luxemburgo has lost faith in the player's discipline and the Chilean Claudio Maldonado has come into the first-team - although Aírton is likely to play against Grêmio this weekend, with his more experienced colleague absent.

Benfica are looking to sell the midfielder, but it appears they will need to find a new buyer unless the situation improves.
