Several Brazilian football personalities enjoyed the carnival at Marquês de Sapucaí, the first day of the Grupo Especial samba school parades. Thus, the flashes went in the right direction: stars of the Rio teams, coaches, managers.
Flamengo players gathered with friends to enjoy the celebration together in one of the boxes. Thus, Arrascaeta, Wesley and Gerson were among the most excited revelers.
Samba and kisses for Arrascaeta and Léo Pereira
Uruguayan star Arrascaeta and defender Léo Pereira took their wives to the Sambadrome. That's why they took great care to include cuddly toys for photos.
V for the victory of the tricolor president and coach
Fluminense president Mário Bittencourt published a photo with coach Fernando Diniz. They watched the parades in the same box. This way, they didn't miss the chance to commemorate their success. And they posed, forming a V for victory, still celebrating the 2023 Libertadores title.
The Sapucaí box contains Colina's star
Vasco also had a strong presence in the most exclusive part of the avenue. Frenchman Payet, in white trousers and sunglasses, enjoyed the Rio Carnival in style in a box at Passarela do Samba.
Without shoes, but with enthusiasm
And those who had already hung up their boots on the pitch also showed great vitality on another stage: the party box. One of the most excited, along with his wife, was Léo Moura, despite the complaint against his sister accused of fraud during the carnival. Finally, Lívia Moura is under investigation for selling fake box tickets for around R$5,000 per pair.
