A Brazilian goalkeeper who ordered his girlfriend’s murder before he fed her body to his dog has signed for a new club after serving just seven years in jail. Bruno Fernandes de Souza, 32, has been handed a two-year contract by second tier Brazilian side Boa Esporte – in a move that has caused uproar in the country.
Women protested outside the stadium after the club announced their new singing. Fernandes, known in Brazil as Bruno, was only recently released from prison after serving seven years of a 22-year sentence following the 2010 murder. He was tipped for the top when he was playing for leading side and five-time league winners Flamengo, before his arrest in August 2010.
But after his release from prison, the goalkeeper, who had previously been linked with moves to Barcelona and AC Milan, sought to find a new club, with Boa Esporte agreeing to take him on. The decision has caused uproar in Brazil and one of their main sponsors, Nutrents Nutrition, has ended its deal with the club.
