The family and fans of former Brazilian goalkeeper Gilmar dos Santos Neves can rest easy. The twice world champion, now 69, left Sirio Libanes hospital in Sao Paulo on Friday afternoon. The former star was released from hospital after 29 days after a blood clot on the brain forced his internment.
According to Dr. Daher Cutait, the hospital’s director, Gilmar will have to continue treatment at home.
Gilmar went into hospital on 15 June and was in intensive care until 21. He was then transferred to a recovery ward until Friday 14 July.
Gilmar began his illustrious career with Jabaquara, in the city of Santos. He then transferred to the Corinthians. He really made his mark after he returned to Santos, a team with which he won five state championships, two Libertadores Cups and two World Interclub championships.
Gilmar dos Santos Neves had one of the most brilliant careers of all Brazil’s goal keepers. He donned the number 1 shirt 103 times for his country and competed in three World Cups: 1958 and 62, winning on both occasions and in England in 1966.
