Branco, 1994 World Cup winning Brazilian fullback

Some damage takes away the ground from the soles of the feet. This (Jagalor's departure) is one of, perhaps, one of the biggest losses of my life. As much as you know about Jagalo, from what you have seen on TV or in newspapers, I don't. When I thought my playing career was about to end, he saved my career. He trusted me. Said, if I can do something on the field, then everyone will follow me. And we will realize that no matter what, we will be champions. Your departure is like living a nightmare for me. We will always remember your contribution. Don't let anything get away. Thanks for everything. you changed my life Wake up, I'm not kidding. really love you I will love all my life.

I was surprised to hear the news. I am writing the words with tears in my eyes. Spent last years with him. The footballing philosophy, conversation, work ethic and confidence—all in all, he is an icon. He has contributed to every step and achievement of the Brazilian national team. Thank you for every minute spent with me. I have always listened to you. Highest respect to my old wolf.

Marinho, Brazilian footballer

I can only thank you for what you have done for us. Your love for turmeric was unmatched. How can I forget the 1998 World Cup semi-final! You boosted the confidence of the players with all your energy and conviction minutes before the penalty shootout. I have always been your biggest fan. Rest in peace, old wolf.
