Emerson Carioca: Marica’s People Have Called Me Slob, Alcoholic, Fat Monkey


Globo Esporte noted that, as a punishment for an incident, Sampaio Correa winger Emerson Carioca was slapped with an eight-match ban.

He bagged a dramatic winner against Marica to take his side to the Carioca Championship, and celebrated naked against a group of opposing players by taking off both his top and shorts to windmill.

“Marica’s people have been slandering me for the past three matches I’ve played against them,” he said. “They’ve called me a slob, an alcoholic and a fat monkey. I was annoyed at what went on.”

Unsurprisingly, an on-pitch altercation was caused then, back in December. And the player was punished for his involvement in the whole thing.

He left to join Portuguesa shortly after.
