Fulham midfielder Andreas Pereira broke down in tears after a phone call from former Flamengo team-mate David Luiz.
Brazil internationals Luiz and Pereira were both part of the Flamengo squad that suffered a painful defeat to Palmeiras in the 2021 Copa Libertadores final. That result was especially heartbreaking for former Manchester United player Pereira, who made a costly mistake to help the opponent score an important goal.
While the midfielder moved to Fulham, Luiz stayed with Rubro-Negro to help them reach the continental final once again. This time, they won, and Pereira was moved when he received a call from his former colleague.
Luiz shared a screenshot of his video call with Pereira on Instagram, when the former MU star was in tears. He recorded: “You’re a champion bro, we love you.”
Gabigol, who scored in 2021, scored the only goal of the game to settle a tight final in Ecuador. Flamengo hasn’t lost a single game in the entire tournament, picking up 16 points from 18 in the group stage and winning at home and away in all three knockouts before the final.
