Former Brazil captain Socrates is fighting for his life in hospital.

Medics at a Sao Paulo hospital said Socrates, widely regarded as one of the greatest midfielders of all time, remained on life support on Saturday.

He has been in a critical condition with an intestinal infection since being admitted to intensive care on Friday night.

Socrates, who played in two World Cups, won 60 caps for his country between 1979 and 1986, scoring 22 goals.

A quote from him.




"I want to die on a Sunday and I also want Corinthians to win a title that day".

That actually happened.

RIP
