    goalkeeper who fed his girlfriend to dogs allowed work release

    Murdering former Flamengo goalkeeper who fed his girlfriend to dogs allowed work release - to resume football career

    The 29-year-old goalkeeper who once cost Flamengo €3million will be allowed to pick up his career via a work release program



    Calculated: De Souza plotted his girlfriend's murder A Brazilian footballer who "meticulously calculated" the kidnap and execution of his girlfriend has been granted work release - so he can play football.

    Bruno Fernandes de Souza, formerly goalkeeper with one of Brazil's biggest clubs, Flamengo, is currently in prison serving a 22-year sentence for the murder of his girlfriend, Eliza Samudio.

    De Souza, 29, admitted during his trial to "accepting" her murder, before her body was chopped up and fed to his pet rottweilers.

    Prosecutors during his court case told the court that de Souza ordered Ms Samudio’s murder after she said she’d take legal action to force him to pay child support.

    Ms Samudio’s four-month-old baby was later found in a slum, alleged to have been abandoned there by Dayane De Souza - the goalkeeper's wife.

    Despite his confession and prison sentence, the former Flamengo stopper signed a five-year deal with Montes Claros.

    A provision in Brazilian law allows prisoners who have shown good behaviour to be granted freedom to work - and having been in prison since 2010, de Souza is eligible - and could be allowed out to resume his career.

    Ville Mocellin, the chairman of the club who signed him, explained why they are signing the player.

    "We want to give an opportunity to the man Bruno," he told O Tempo.

    "For him, it is a chance to return to play. To the club, he is an athlete who can strengthen the team and a way to invest in the social side."

    De Souza will have to be accompanied by a police escort to all of his matches.

    I thought this was a joke! What a messed up world we live in. It would be real funny if not completely sick. So how close does the policeman stay to him? The only sadder thing is the club that signed him.

    There maybe some solace in him being a goalkeeper, because if he were an outfield player he'd probably 'murder the opposition'.
