Timão fan Lula said he supported Vasco in Rio de Janeiro and acknowledged his friendship with two former players of the club.
“I’m also a Vasco fan. Did you see that Vasco beat Botafogo yesterday? I’m friends with Juninho Pernambucano, who was a great Vasco player. I was friends with Roberto Dinamite, who was the best center forward at Vasco,” the president said.
Lula called on Vasco fans to support Corinthians at least in São Paulo. “I’m a Corinthian fan in São Paulo and a Vasco fan in Rio. You have to be a Corinthian fan in São Paulo,” he joked.
