On Instagram, Luis Fabiano did a retrospective and stated that he had decided to stop playing professionally due to the pain.
“The time has come. For the past four years, I’ve struggled so much against my body to be able to get back to doing what I love most: playing football. There were many hours of treatment, training, strengthening and surgeries, two. I fought to the end, but this fight didn’t I win it. The pain and conditions we are in, in the midst of an epidemic, have not allowed me to return to the fields the way I had envisioned,” he began.
“But time made me think a lot, and today I see that everything happened the way it should be. I am very proud of the path that I built as a footballer,” continued the former striker.
