Liverpool Message Board
It was all a bit bizarre how this guy seemed to be on our books but unseen at the start of the season with no comments about him. I remembered he got released on 31st Jan but didn't know how or where to. He actually signed for Botafogo but the reason he hadn't appeared for us or had comment made was because he suffered a cardiac arrest during a club medical at Melwood back in the summer! He wasn't very good for us as a player but I wanted to wish the guy well, he is still not able to play football but hopefully he will back and well for them in the near future.
Wow that is a real shock.
We often complain that we don't get enough information from the club, but I assume they kept the lid on this one for good reason. Once released it could really have hurt his reputation as a player if it was the press who was telling potential clubs he has a heart problem rather than Doni or his doctors.
I do hope he gets to play again. Your right never really did much for us, but nothing against him. But I do also hope he takes his doctor’s advice and only plays if it’s safe.
