“The threats never stopped. Whenever Corinthians lost and if sometimes I was not doing well in the game, my family received threats and curses on social media. My wife, and my daughters, after a while they also started attacking my father, and my sister.
“When I returned to Brazil, I came back with a lot of desire to play for Corinthians.
