Ederson not yet ready to start for Flamengo
After arriving from Lazio a little over a week ago, Ederson is not expected to make his Flamengo debut this weekend. Indeed, coach Cristóvão Borges confirmed yesterday in a press conference that he will not be starting the midfielder until his fitness is at 100%. This weekend, the carioca club travel to Campinas to take on Ponte Preta.
“Ederson will not play,” said Borges. “I spoke with him and he is not yet with the pace. He came from Europe where he had physical training but no training with the ball. I want him to be 100% and this is not yet the case.”
