Vasco's plans for 2024 are ambitious and include retaining Ramón Díaz's technical committee. The coach has a contract until December next year, but in order to stay, he presented a list of demands for the winning project, which includes not only strengthening the squad, but also improving the structure.

Vasco is willing to fulfill the contract and to this end he has proposed a new contract until December 2025, including a salary increase and bonuses for achieved goals. The agreement is considered certain and should be finalized this week by the new sports director Alexandre Mattos. Advanced negotiations were confirmed by Emiliano Díaz, Ramón Díaz's son and assistant, in an interview with “ESPN” in Argentina.

– The representative is talking there, but the truth is that in Rio we feel very good, we have another year of contract. So definitely yes. The club will try, we talked there with the general director and the club's staff, they brought in a manager who is one of the most recognizable in Brazil, a sports director. Mattos was at Paranaense (Athletico), but he was also at Palmeiras. Everyone loves them. We are happy with it, said Emiliano Díaz, who graduated.

– The club is planning to make changes, the structure will change, I hope we can change it and achieve something with Vasco.

According to Argentine journalists, Boca Juniors wants to sign Medel, but Emiliano Díaz has made it clear that the Chilean will remain at Vasco.

– Medel is a fundamental figure for us and wants to stay at the club.

The assistant also revealed that he is preparing to become a coach, but stated that there is still a long time before his father, Ramón Díaz, retires. At least until 2025, this will not happen.
