He decided to return to football.
Somewhat older football fans will surely remember the talent of the legendary Denilson, who ended his career prematurely due to injuries.
He was sold to Real Betis in 1998 for a record 31 million euros, but unfortunately he never lived up to expectations.
Instead, due to frequent injuries, he had to hang his football boots on a peg at the age of 32, but today he returned to football.
Namely, the legendary Denilson decided to strengthen the Brazilian lower league team Ibis Sport Club.
– Now I can say, it’s official. I decided to return to football after 12 years and as of today I am an Ibiza player. Let’s go – Denilson wrote on Twitter.
By the way, Denilson was a member of the Brazilian national football team, which was defeated in the final of the World Cup by France in 1998, and in the “Carioca” jersey he scored eight goals in 61 games.
As for the World Cup, everything came back to him four years later, when he became the world champion with Brazil in South Korea and Japan.
