With Leandro shirt number 2 and advised by Arrascaeta, Varela is served by Flamengo

Historic No. 2 Leandro on the back and words of encouragement from Arrascaeta to complete the negotiations. If there’s one thing Guillermo Varela can celebrate on his arrival in Flamengo, it’s that he is surrounded by the club’s historic idols. The first step for those who presented on Thursday with great ambitions.

The Uruguayan right-back, who imposed FIFA on clubs in war zones, arrived and left Dinamo Moscow, on loan for one year. However, Varela has a new contract in the drawer until 2025, as it’s free on the market in mid-2023 and has big plans to move to Flamengo.

– I am very happy to join this wonderful club, which has a lot of history. I will do my best to be on the court as soon as possible with this shirt. Expectations are very high.

“There is a lot to compete and I spoke to Georgian, who gave me a lot of support to get into the club and I saw it all with my own eyes on the first day I went to the Maracana”

For about two weeks in Rio de Janeiro, Uruguay has already been staged and the expectation is that he will be included by Dorival Junior in the weekend’s match, against Atletico-PR, in Brazil. As far as it depends, the debut is a matter of a short time.

I have been training with the team for several days, and this is the coach’s decision. I’m fine on Sunday and all the documents have arrived.

Flamengo face Atletico – PR on Sunday, 16:00 (Brazilian time), in the Maracana, in the 22nd round of the Brazilian League. In the middle of next week, Wednesday, the Hurricane is the opponent again, but Varela is not registered in the Copa Brasil. In the Libertadores, the team will be one of the new faces in the semi-final exchanges.

– It was a big surprise to me. It was my first time playing in the Maracana and seeing an important match like the Libertadores, to see the fans supporting and singing the whole match. This is felt on the field, making players run around the audience in the stadium. It is important.

– I’ve known Georgian for ten years, less than 20 years ago, and we have a great relationship. It’s been years of playing together and seeing him grow like he did here makes me so proud. He’s a great player and a great person, and it’s important to see how fans adore him.

Will is play. The coach will decide that, as will be the next few days, but the expectations at a club like Flamengo are that he will only be the champion of the Libertadores.

If you learn a lot, some mature faster. I was very young and learned from great coaches. Each is different. Here, I came to learn from Dorival and I on his orders to take advantage of my characteristics for the team.

– Obviously, flamingo showed up. It’s one of the biggest teams in the world, and it’s easier to be here to call the cup. Expectations are high. First, I want to play here, do my best for the team and then think about the World Cup.

– Georgian was very supportive. He talked about the club, the institution, which is on the European level, and it is clear that the desire to come in was huge. It was very difficult to refuse Flamengo, which is why the decision was so overwhelming.

All the players here deserve to play. There are no owners or reserves, the team is very good and this helps the arrivals. I hope it will be the same for me. Everyone has been very supportive from day one and I expect to put the shirt on ASAP.
