Good memories

“It was very tough to wake up to news like this, The world of football is in shock, and in my case, there was a player in the squad with whom I was team mates with, which makes it even tougher to take. I send my condolences to his family, his friends and would just like to say to them that we share their pain”, a visibly distressed Perea told reporters in Madrid. “He was a very easy-going, happy guy - like most Brazilians are. He was very hard-working and great to get on with; he integrated well with other people. I have so many good memories of him”.
