SAN PAOLO – The former captain of the 'Selecao' world champion in 2002, Cafu, has been overwhelmed by millionaire debts and recently he would have lost five properties by decision of a Brazilian court: the newspaper Folha de S. Paulo makes it known.
The failure to cover loans and debts created by Capi Penta International Player, a company of athletic prosecutors belonging to the 49-year-old former player and his wife, Regina, would also have caused the seizure of 15 other properties of the couple.
"It's my personal problem.
I can give my property, my car, my house, I can give what I want to pay my debts, "said the former right-back of Rome and Milan, chosen as Brazil's ambassador at the next 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Cafu, an extraordinary career: he was one of the strongest fullbacks ever.

On an individual level, he is the only player in the history of football to have played three world championship finals consecutively. In 1994 he was named South American footballer of the year. In 2004 he was included in the FIFA 100, a list of the 125 greatest living players, selected by Pelé and FIFA on the occasion of the celebration of the centenary of the federation.
In 2009 he was included in the "ideal team of the decade" by the Sun. In 2013 he was included in the strongest history training by World Soccer magazine. In 2014 he was included by the British newspaper The Guardian in the list of the 30 best footballers who "left a mark" in the history of the world championships.
