What the appearance of Pablo Mari in Brentford means for Flamengo

What the appearance of Pablo Mari in Brentford means for Flamengo

Arsenal opening day stutter

Pablo Mari started at the heart of Arsenal’s defense in his first game of the season against Brentford, alongside new Ben White.

The Gunners were unable to start their new season the winning way they ended the last one, falling in a lackluster 2-0 loss to the latest Premier League addition. Goals from Sergi Canos and Christian Norgaard made local fans ecstatic and Arsenal fans incandescent.

While they were poor across the field, one position that received special criticism was defense, with the Gunners proving that their soft belly was not gone despite the acquisition of White for 50 million pounds.

Along with him, Pablo Mari also fought. The Spaniard looked uncomfortable on the ball and often struggled to cope with the intensely high pressure from Brentford, not helped by a poor distribution from his goalkeeper.

With Gabriel out for weeks as a result of a knee injury, Arsenal fans and other players hope Mari can regain some of the composure she displayed last season.

Arsenal will pay Flamengo for Mari

In another stroke of sweet irony, it was Mari’s appearance last night that, according to Balloon, forced Arsenal to fork out additional money to Flamengo. Mari joined the club in January 2020, in a deal worth € 8 million up front.

However, Flamengo and Arsenal also agreed on a clause that entitles the Brazilian team to € 1 million each time Mari makes 10 appearances for the club, for a total of 80 appearances (€ 8 million).

In total, therefore, Mari could end up costing the Gunners € 16 million if she made 80 appearances for the club.

Will it prove good value for money?
