The Brazilian soccer team sent its support and its recovery wishes to the legendary ex-soccer player Edson Arantes do Nascimento, ‘Pelé’, who had to be admitted this Wednesday to a hospital in the city of Sao Paulo.

“We all wish Pelé good health. We found out about the news through the press. He is the highest representative of the national team and we wish him good health. That is the feeling of the entire squad, we wish Pelé the best,” said the coach Adenor Leonardo Bacchi, ‘Tite’, at the press conference prior to this Friday’s duel against Cameroon.

The former Brazilian soccer player was admitted again to the Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo due to the concern of the doctors that the 82-year-old legend no longer responds to the chemotherapy treatment that he has been undergoing since he removed a tumor more than a year ago. of the colon.

However, his daughter Kely do Nascimiento tried to reassure all his followers and soccer fans with a message on social networks in which he insisted that his father’s admission was “without surprises or emergencies.” ESPN Brasil, on the other hand, reported that Pelé had swelling all over his body and that doctors were concerned that tumors in various organs in the Brazilian would no longer respond to chemotherapy.
