André Santos seen back at Flamengo’s training groundAndré Santos has become the target of abuse following a difficult period for Flamengo
The saga involving the full-back's prolonged exit from Flamengo appears set to be drawn out even further after the 31-year-old was seen at the clubs training complex in Ninho do Urubu on Thursday.
Coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo conducted a closed session, meaning that people are left guessing as to what starting XI will take to the field for Sunday’s clássico against Botafogo at the Maracanã.
One noteworthy piece of news, however, was the presence of André Santos. Earlier in the week the player stated that the Rio de Janeiro club had terminated his contracted, something denied by the Rubro-Negro.
Since then, it is rumoured that the player and his agent, Carlos Leite, are negotiating terms to cancel the contract in the best interests of both parties.
On Thursday the player was seen talking to colleagues as well as executive director Felipe Ximenes as the former Arsenal player's future remains uncertain.
