The Brazilian giants have sacked coach Andrade and president Patricia Amorim says they now are targeting Leonardo.
"The first person I thought of was Zico. I think he is everything that is right for this club. We talked about it, but at this moment he is not ready to return, although he knows that for him the doors are always open," said the Flamengo president.
"What is another very interesting name is Leonardo, not to coach, I'd have him as director general, he has the experience and ability to fulfill this role. Let's see what happens. "
