1994 US World Cup winner’s friendship has cracked. He vehemently exchanged insulting remarks.
The fight started when Brazilian legend Romario, 57, appeared on a Brazilian podcast and openly shot his former teammate Bebeto, 59.
Romario, who called Bebeto a ‘traitor’, said, “He betrayed me politically. There are things in life that we have to stay together forever, both in and out of politics. We face each other every day, but it’s sad when friendships with people close to us have problems.”
Rio de Janeiro Senator Romario Romario, who turned into a politician after retiring from active service, was reportedly angered by Bebeto’s decision to support progressive candidate Luis Inacio Lula da Silva.
Romario supported far-right politician Jair Bolsonar.
Likewise, Bebeto, who entered the political world after his retirement, was incensed. “Who calls me a traitor? Romario is an aging bullshit. I have never been involved in controversy in football or politics. I have never betrayed anyone. Romario is selfish. He always thinks only of himself.”
Bebeto “recalls” captain Romario, who “alone” led Brazil to victory at the 1994 World Cup in the United States. He criticized, “You can’t achieve anything alone. Football and politics are done collectively. Romario is an individualist.”바카라사이트
Romario and Bebeto jointly helped Brazil win the World Cup in the United States. Romario, number 11, scored five goals and won the Golden Ball. Number 7 Bebeto scored 3 goals. It is evaluated as one of the most outstanding attacking partners in World Cup history. The cradle ceremony is talked about over and over again.
Romario scored 55 goals in 70 matches for Brazil. He played a big role in PSV, Int Hoven, Barcelona, and Flamengo. Bebeto scored 39 goals in 75 matches for Brazil. He has played for Flamengo, Deportivo La Coruna, Sevilla and Kashima Antlers.
The two politicians, whose hair has gone gray over the years, are making Brazilian soccer fans feel sorry for them as they cross the road of no return.
