The Bragantino player was visibly emotional and, at the end of the shared video, it is possible to see his voice breaking. The striker revealed that he texted Arana after the game and asked Keno, who was his teammate at Pyramids, in Egypt, to update him on the left-back’s physical condition.

The full speech:
“Passing by to apologize again to Guilherme Arana for what happened. In a moment of desire, to help my team, I ended up being reckless in my entry that collided with his injury. It took a dream from him, took a dream from his family, from friends of his, of his fans. I know everyone was rooting for him to be called up, I was rooting for him. At no time did I want to harm this, at no time did I want to take this dream away from him. Unfortunately, it was an accident at work, I apologize to him for heart. As I sent a message right after the game was over, 11 o’clock at night, apologizing to him, asking that it wasn’t anything serious. I called Keno, talked to him to inform me about what was happening, but unfortunately it happened (the injury), it was not what I wanted. It was not what I wanted at any time, to spoil the athlete’s dream, to take away the dream of everyone who was rooting for him. I hope he gets well, that he has a good recovery , let him stay and in peace and may he forgive me for what happened. May God bless his life a lot, the lives of everyone who is texting me. That’s it. I’m sorry my friend, I’m really sorry”
