SEOUL, South Korea (Yonhap) By Ahn Hong-seok = Brazilian national soccer team forward Pedro (Flamengo), who played at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, was assaulted by his team’s coach.Flamengo fired first-team coach Pablo Fernandes on Aug. 31, the Associated Press reported.According to Pedro’s social media posts and a statement from the Minas Gerais state police, Fernandes slapped Pedro three times on the cheek and punched him in the mouth in the locker room after the team’s 2-1 regular-season away win over Atletico Mineiro the previous day.Pedro immediately filed an assault charge against Fernandes with the police.Given that Pedro is the team’s biggest star and this isn’t the first time Fernandez has gotten into trouble in soccer, the aftermath of the assault is likely to go beyond firing Fernandez.Flamengo 카지노사이트킹 coach Jorge Sampaoli also faces the prospect of losing his job, according to AP.Fernandes is part of the “Sampaoli division” and was previously suspended in August 2021 while working at Olympique Marseille (France) for punching a spectator in a match against Nice.”I had a problem with coach Sampaoli’s coaching staff,” Pedro wrote on social media, “and may God forgive anyone who believes that physical assault can solve a problem when it’s 2023.”Fernandes responded with a statement, saying, “I am angry that I committed an assault. I want to resolve the situation as soon as possible,” he said, admitting his wrongdoing.Sampaoli also issued a statement, saying that “the only solution to the crisis is to talk.”Sampaoli is an Argentine coach who has coached Chile, the Argentina national team, and Sevilla (Spain). He was named Flamengo coach in April.
