wide wild world of sports!
Disgusting human being, Bruno Fernandes de Souza, has been rotting away in a Brazilian prison cell since 2010, where eventually in 2013 he confessed to killing and dismembering his pregnant girlfriend.
Now, the former Flamengo goalkeeper could be getting out of prison to play soccer again. In fact, he’s already signed a five-year deal with Montes Claros of the Campeonato Mineiro.
In Brazil, if you’ve been well behaved for three or four years, you can get a work release.
But back to the girlfriend, because how is this man even free at all?!
According to Yahoo!, this is what went down:
“It is alleged that Souza wanted his ex-girlfriend dead so that he could avoid paying child support, and it has also been widely reported that her remains were fed to his pet dogs.”
The Daily Mail elaborated:
“The former player had previously denied any knowledge of what happened to the 25-year-old, but told a court last March how his best friend Luiz Henrique Romao had paid someone to kill her.
He admitted that although he hadn't ordered his former lover to be killed, he had 'accepted' it.
The goalkeeper is accused of planning Ms Samudio's abduction and murder with eight others including his wife Dayane, another former lover, a cousin and former policeman Marcos Santos.
It has been alleged that he watched as Santos tortured her and then helped him to chop her body.
Parts of the woman's corpse are alleged to have been fed to Bruno's pet rottweilers, while the rest was buried in concrete.”
So, why in the world would anyone want this clearly sociopathic person to play on their team? Montes Claros chairman Ville Mocellin explained:
"We want to give an opportunity to the man Bruno. For him, it is a chance to return to play. To the club, he is an athlete who can strengthen the team and a way to invest in the social side."
We’re not quite sure what that ‘social side’ is, but we’re happy to know that at least Bruno will get a police escort to and from every game.
Still, it’s terrible that he has the chance to not only enjoy freedom after something so vicious, but also potentially become a star again!
