The eldest son of Brazilian soccer star Cafu is dead. At the age of 30, Danilo Feliciano de Moraes died after a family football game. That said the former Bundesliga star Paulo Sergio, according to several media reports. He is a close friend of Cafu.
Accordingly, the son Cafus collapsed after only a few minutes in the private football field in front of the house of his sister Michelle Feliciano and had suffered a heart attack on the way to the hospital to Barueri just outside São Paulo.
FC São Paulo and SE Palmeiras - clubs that Cafu played for in the 1990s - sent their condolences to the family on Twitter.
