Funny you should post this. I was just going to ask what had become of him lately. I knew he played with Sao Paulo, but hadn't heard much. I saw him play against England in the 93 US Cup. He was a giant compared to all the other guys running around.

Rai is one of the largest idols of Sao Paulo fans. Afterall, he did help them to their most important titles such as the libertadores and toyota cup. If any of you watch Sao Paulo games you might notice that everytime he is substituted and at the beginning of the game they always, quite enthusiasticly, shout out "Rai!!...Rai!!" And also the other day I was watching Globo esporte and they showed Rai arriving at the airport with hundreds of fans surrounding him, and a couple at the back were beating large drums, chanting "Fica Rai" (stay Rai). So although he might not be the largest of losses to Brasilian football in general he will be remembered dearly by Sao Paulo fans and as Ze mentioned, he is an example of modesty and charcter to many people.
