The Portuguese coach left Mengão’s command in July 2020

Jorge Jesus revealed, in an interview with Spor TV, from Brazil, on the program ‘Bem, Amigos’, that the pandemic was the main reason that led him to leave Flamengo in July 2020. “It was at the time of the pandemic. in Portugal I took a vacation, came back and the pandemic continued. Everything was unknown, nobody knew what the Covid-19 was. I was alone at home and the driver, who was from Flamengo, went to buy the food, rang the bell, left the food and went away,” Jesus explained, pointing out that he felt lonely during the time in question. “We were unable to have contact. And that went on for several days, I started thinking about my children. The main problem was that otherwise I would never have left Flamengo,” he concluded.

The Portuguese coach, who has not yet joined any club since leaving Benfica in December 2021, also recalled, to the same source, that he had even rejected a invitation to coach Evertonand pointed out that a training proposal from the Brazilian team would be “irrefutable”.
