« When I arrived there, they did not treat me like a sportsman, railed the South American, expelled by email, in the columns of Globo Esporte. I was not aware and I I did not believe it at the time. I was at home, I received a message from the club staff asking me if I had the same email address, which I confirmed, then I received it . I didn’t understand, I sent it to my manager and my lawyer. They said it was my dismissal. I said, « Ah, they lied if they did that ». Some time passed. No conversation, nothing, they didn’t even call me to talk to me or say goodbye. «

They fired one guy by phone, then another by email. doesn’t cost anything to call to talk. That’s how we don’t count on you. In any job, we can tell you we don’t count on you. It’s not a call or an email and that’s it. I think it’s very unprofessional. They didn’t say anything to me. They just said goodbye.
