One of the main questions in the letter relates to not presenting the budget so that the Finance Council can perform the function of comparing the monthly amounts realized and the budget, as well as analyzing the indebtedness of the SAF.
– I’m sad that an internal message was leaked. My style of collecting is the same, but always in a constructive way. I have been criticized, but I know the SAF has only been around for four months and it’s a very new operation. My intention has always been to build, not destroy. I would be sad if my exit was used for political purposes. I hope that everyone involved in SAF and Botafogo will help us return to our glorious past – explained Fernando Pereira.

Dorchesio Melo also stated that Fernando’s departure from the Finance Council in August was already planned since the implementation of the SAF, which was confirmed by Al-Muhandis.
Discussions and demands exist, but this was not the reason for my resignation from the Supervisory Board. I joined this to help Botafogo. I intended to stay for three months, because the financial board is none of my business. I’m not someone who digs into details, and I have no experience in this area. I leave with a broken heart and hope the club will nominate a capable man.

Textor has already sent out an agreement for the stadium in a meeting with the city’s mayor, Eduardo Paes. About CT, negotiations are underway with the Moreira Salles brothers over the loan offered to the club.
According to Fernando in the letter, The only information he received from the press was provided by Textor himself, when the American told the French newspaper L’Equipe that he had spent more than twice what he expected with Alfinegro.. According to the former director, the statement violates the confidentiality of the shareholder agreement and contravenes the Companies Act.
In addition to requesting clarification on budget and expenditures, Fernando is also requesting clarification and documentary evidence about Botafogo’s possible involvement in Textor’s acquisition of Lyon.

Schroeder is the former CEO of Oi and is not a member of Botafogo. He will be the only member representing the association in the company, a position that the directors want for a member of the club. Those who attended the meeting said Dorsesio was confused about the SAF law by saying the position could not be filled by someone with connections to the club.
– In this position I would advise an experienced person who knows well the subject of taxation, legislation and accounting. She suggested Schroeder, which would be a massive choice. I was upset that it was not approved and I hope the club will nominate someone who is capable. I don’t think it should be a member or a person with a political interest – said Fernando Pereira.
