Jesus was announced by Flamengo on June 1, 2019. And the coach has a curiosity in this period when he is at the head of the Rio club: he adds more cups raised, five in all, than defeats (four).
In order to keep the most successful coach of the last years in Flamengo, Rubro-Negro had been handling the conversations for the renewal of the Portuguese with caution, aware that the coach’s contract would expire soon and using the time in his favor, along the lines of the soap Gabigol .
The duration of the new agreement had been one of the obstacles in the conversations, since Flamengo wanted, from the beginning, to extend the contract until December 2021 – which is when Rodolfo Landim’s term of office ends. But the initial scope has not been reached.
The values of bonuses linked to the achievements and clauses for their departure, such as offers from pre-determined clubs in Europe, were also on the agenda, especially after the pandemic of the new coronavirus, which caused Jesus to give up the initial request, taking into account recent view of the euro high.
