Vitinho calls himself a Flamengo fan, but awaits definition from CSKA Moscow
Striker Vitinho, who participated in a charity game held by Brazilian legend Zico, confirmed that he received an enquiry from Flamengo and says it would be a huge honor to play for the club.
If it depended on Vitinho, his destination would be Flamengo in 2017. Present at the Maracanã stadium to participate in a friendly game, the striker claimed to be a Flamengo fan and revealed an enquiry from the club. Meanwhile, the player is still awaiting a definition from CSKA Moscow, with whom he has a contract. Vitinho stood out for Internacional in the Brazilian Championship this year and has attracted the interest of Flamengo. However, CSKA Moscow seem unwilling to loan out the striker again after two straight seasons, and would only accept to sell him. Vitinho is from Rio de Janeiro and started his career at Botafogo. Then he went through CSKA Moscow and International.
He said: "There was an enquiry, but it's an uncertain thing. We are waiting. I was on vacation, I'm not worrying much now. It would be a great honor to play at Flamengo, even more so being the club of my heart. We have nothing done, but if I can go there, it would be an honor for me. For now, I'm going back to Russia but there's still time for something to come up."
