Sócrates, a Soccer Genius and Champion of Democracy in Brazil

A Corinthians soccer player and one of the best in BRazil’s history, Sócrates Brasileiro Sampaio de Souza Vieira de Oliveira died this morning. He was a genius in the field but also, he fought for Brazil’s democracy when Brazil was under dictatorship. He thought: what if we get this mass of of soccer fans  to fight military power? He was so different from every other soccer player in Brazil. He is the only soccer player that got a degree in Medicine while he was playing soccer. He was a socialist, a social fighter, a fascinating thinker and a soccer genius. We also own our democratic freedom in Brazil to Dr. Sócrates.
