Flamengo president promises new signings at the club
Flamengo president Eduardo Bandeira de Mello has told fans of te club that they are working on new signings after a stuttering start to the 2014 league campaign.
Bandeira also revealed that a new Director of Football is on the agenda at the Rio de Janeiro club, but refused to be drawn on who they are targetting for the role.
The president told reporters: "The cast of Flamengo, like any Brazilian club, has gaps that can be filled. We're always on this issue in the market and aware of the possibility of strengthening the team."
"But we have our political responsibility and I think paying salary on time and paying taxes is an obligation. I don't know if evryone complies, but Flamengo does."
On the pitch, Mengao have ebdured an inconsistent 2014 thus far; they lost in the group stages of the Copa Libertadores for only the second time in their history and sit 16th in the Serie A table after seven games, having won the Carioca state championship earlierin the year.
Flamengo next play Figueirense on Thursday evening at the Maracana in their penultimate game before a break for the World Cup.
