Branco turns 57 this Sunday, which is also celebrated Easter. The news was celebrated by the wife of the former player, Cleo Pozzebon, who is also a doctor. “Gratitude is the word to all of you for all the love, and messages !!”, he wrote in a photo posted on his social networks.
O Fluminense, a club which Branco is an idol, also made a point of paying homage to this Saturday’s news. The Rio club posted a video in which, in a wheelchair, the ex-player is directed to the exit of the hospital where he stayed, in the South Zone of Rio de Janeiro. Several people applauded him. “We are thrilled with you, Warrior!”, Wrote the team.
Today, Branco is the coordinator of the men’s base teams of the CBF. He contracted the new coronavirus after joining the delegation that traveled to Recife, in early March, for a period of preparation and a friendly with Retrô FC. Under-18 coach Dudu Patetuci, assistant Igor Cotrim and assistant Bruno Pacheco were also infected.
