Dorival Júnior asks for patience with Gérson case

 Flamengo had just played and tied 2-2 with Juventude for the Brazilian Championship, but with no chance of winning the competition and the recent successes of Libertadores and Copa do Brasil, coach Dorival Jnior found himself being questioned more about non-football-related topics than the match at Alfredo Jaconi, in Caxias do Sul (RS). 

And one of the issues the coach had to deal with was the impending return of French midfielder Gerson, who is currently playing for Olympique de Marseille.

The coach, who is constantly restrained in news conferences, begged for time and did not want to go into great detail about the situation.

"To enter and exit a club is normal. Although we are all aware of Gerson's potential, we must also have the patience to wait for everything that will occur. There was a lot of external discussion and disagreement over a number of names. Internally, we are speaking and moving through each phase. Every outstanding player is coveted by Brazil's top football clubs "He underlined. Gérson and Rubro-Negro have a verbal agreement, and Gérson has already expressed interest in going back to Flamengo. The Flamengo board is now negotiating the acquisition's terms with Olympique de Marseille, but the midfielder, who is anticipated in Rio de Janeiro, was not even mentioned for the weekend match against Monaco.
