Souza remembers Choro and cheers for a repeat in Botafogo x Flamingo: “I would be grateful”

Rodrigo de Souza Cardoso, better known as Souza Cavirao. But there are those who remember it mainly for “crying”. The former striker is a celebration figure who has gone down in history, increased the rivalry between Flamengo and Botafogo, and became a “success” in the stands.

Caveirão’s title began when he arrived at Flamengo in 2007, but the history of “chororô” only took place in 2008. On that occasion, Rubro-Negro won the Guanabara Cup over Botafogo, who held a press conference to show indignation at the refereeing over claiming his penalty kick On Fabio Luciano.

Souza made a crying gesture after beating Botafogo in 2008

The speech was attended by then Alfinegro coach Coca, then president Bebeto de Freitas and most of the Botafogo players. At this moment Souza plans to celebrate Which continues to this day and echoes in the stands with the tradition: “And no one silences this koruro.”

– They had no reason (to complain about the arbitration). The game is over and I went to the restaurant with family and friends. The TV was showing their interview. It was very funny. They talked and cried and complained – said Souza, continuing:

We had a match next week, and in my head, I should have done something different if I scored in that match. I was thinking of something to do. I didn’t talk to anyone. But it was all very fast. Second, we focus. The fourth was the Maracana match (against Cienciano of Peru in favor of the Libertadores). scored a goal and “cry”.

The celebration took on even greater repercussions when Flamengo and Botafogo met in the Carioca final that same year. Robro Negro won, and Leo Moura and Obinna raised their rivals. Fourteen years passed, and in addition to the stands, other players continued to compete with the gesture on the lawns.

In 2013, Hernan and Andre Santos. In 2018, Vinicius Jr. Recently, Gabigol has re-celebrated on a few occasions. The last time was in the first round of Brazil, but the goal was not allowed. The first was in the 2019 Brazilian, at the Maracana, when Flamengo won 3-2.

In the return, Flamengo beat Botafogo 3-2 with controversy, provocations and a wonderful goal from Gabigol.

I haven’t played football for five years and today I have a sense of what that gesture means. It has been marked and will remain eternal. I am happy. I am happy to see the players in the Flamengo shirt score against Botafogo doing the churro. I am happy. My son always calls me and talks. It is very good.

By disrespecting him on the field, Sousa lamented the change in football, especially when it came to playing with opponents:

I think football is getting a little boring. They create a lot of restrictions within the domain. Today the player can no longer take off his shirt, he can no longer celebrate with the fans. You can no longer make gestures because they say they encourage violence. You can’t do anything else and they want to punish everything.

“I would play, but I often get stuck,” the former player joked about what it would be like to play these days. Despite this, when asked if he would repeat the provocation of Botafogo, Souza did not hesitate: Undoubtedly”.

– Tomorrow it will be 2 x 0 for flamingo. One from Marino. And one of her sybolinha. If they did (cry), I would appreciate it.

Compete with Botafogo and then against the day

– At that time there was a very big rivalry. The Botafogo team was a high quality team, and so was ours. We were always in the finals. If I’m not mistaken, we made it to three finals in Carioca. Flamengo won three titles over Botafogo. It was creating too much competition. Then something “chororô” happened and was flagged. They couldn’t hit us.

– But I think the years go by and the rivalry changes, right? In my time it was Botafogo. We always win. In recent years it has been Flamingo and Fluminense. Flunense has been bothering us. I’ve already told my friends that I can’t wait to see Fluminense in the final. I want to go cheer up. In the Brazil Cup final, I hope to be too flamingo and fluorescence.

– I watch games. I’m going to the Maracana. The last match I went to was Flamengo and Palmeiras, in the Maracana, which ended 0-0, and I took my son to the stands. I like. The fans are quiet, they are already used to me there. I go from the north (stadium sector). My son is tied up.

Friendship with ex-colleagues flamingo

– The cast was really great. Obinna, Leo Moura, Juan, Toro, Diego, Epson… The boys were good. Every day was good. We have our own collection to this day. Since that time, Egidio has been the person who lives with me the most, and who is still active today.

Commemorating the current player flamingo

The man I like to see when he scores and makes his own gesture is Pedro, I like to see Pedro. He always keeps this celebration in him. I think its really cool.
