Brazilian goalkeeper Bruno Fernandes de Souza didn’t deserve a second chance, but he got one anyway.
The former goalkeeper for Flamengo of Brazil’s Serie A just signed to play with Brazilian BOA Esporte after serving 7 years of a 22-year prison sentence for killing his mistress and feeding her remains to his dogs.
de Souza did not actually kill the woman, but ordered her torture and murder, which took place in his apartment.
Not surprisingly, fans of his new team are outraged, and the team has already lost four sponsors. They probably won’t be the last.
Aside from the shock of a team signing a convicted murderer, how does someone only do 7 years for killing someone?
Here’s de Souza making saves during his playing career before he started killing people:
