There are rumors of a new team for Brasilian League 2011/2012!!!!!
The project was kept in secret, but in these last days everyone got to know about it.
A big company (people saying about EBX, that has as owner Eike Batista, a brasilian that is one of the richest men in the world!!!), together with a soccer club (probably Botafogo) will build a very strong team for next season in the city of Rio de Janeiro (that so far only have a women team with Unilever)!
Radamés Lattari, that already coached many teams, will supervise the project.
Coach: so far the rumor is that will be Marcos Miranda, that coached Minas for many years, he confirmed that Radamés enter in contact with him. Other name is Pacheco (coach of Cimed this season).
The expectation is that the team can be really strong, though the contracts can happen only after brasilian federation release the new ranking for next season, the rumors are that Radamés already enter in contact with some players....the biggest possibility so far talked is the opposite Théo, that can come back from Japan.
Other names are setter Bruninho (that now is in Modena, the young setter was born in Rio, and support Botafogo, so could be a good oportunity for him to come back to his city), the middle Rodrigão, that also want to come back to Brasil (after being released from Pinheiros this season, the mb signed with a turkish team), Dante (that can come back from Russia), Éder (MB from Cimed this season), and líbero Alan.
For now, only talks had happened with coaches and players, none contract signed, but if EBX really build one team in Rio, I do not doubt they bring many important names!!!!!
The team will probably play also in Maracanazinho, together with Unilever, a gymm that has capacity for 12 thousand people.
