Dinamite: Romário is not welcome at Vasco after dispute

Following former striker Romário's outburst against the Vasco board of directors, club president Roberto Dinamite has insisted the '94 World Cup winner would not be welcome at the club.

Romário launched his tirade against the club on Facebook following his son's decision to leave Vasco's academy and join the first-team of Série C side Brasiliense.

The former Barcelona striker spent four separate spells at the club, winning the Brazilian championship in 2000 and scoring nearly 300 senior goals for the Cruz-Maltino.

However, the striker-turned-politician complained that his son did not receive the same treatment as Dinamite's own son, complained that youth coach Sorato was a 'mediocre player' and that the club was 'in s**t'.

Besides that, Romário reserved special criticism for president Dinamite—another former idol of the club—accusing the director of being a 'horrible president' with no knowledge of administration and lacking in personality.

Dinamite responded on the social media site with a dignified message equating the situation of his own son with Romarinho and stating he was 'surprised' at the comments.

However, on Saturday, Dinamite told Globo that the club would consider removing Romário's statue from the ground after the incidents before adding: "I think it would not be good for Romário to appear at the São Januário. He would not be welcome."

Romário's statue was unveiled at the club after he scored his 1000th senior goal while at the club. The player is, though, currently taking Vasco through the courts over unpaid wages dating back many years.
