Flamengo vice-president launches attack on Ronaldinho
Flamengo vice-president Paulo Cesar Coutinho is at the centre of a furore after being caught on video slamming club captain Ronaldinho.
The controversy comes after Ronaldinho was 'omitted' from the squad for this week's friendly encounter with Piaui, under mysterious circumstances.
"I just talked to the president the Flamengo [Patricia Amorim]. It is already clear [that he has]. Patricia asked to apologise to the people of Piaui," he said.
The video, on Youtube, then shows the director discussing a perceived power struggle between the club and Ronaldinho, in very direct terms.
"Who do you think will win? Flamengo is 100 years old," he added. "Ronaldinho doesn't do a f*****g thing."
