Cafú is cataloged by many as the best right defender in history and was able to win the 2002 World Cup with Brasil but those times of glory seem to have been forgotten. Today Cafú lives a completely different reality and his life was filled with tragedies from one moment to the next. Investigations by criminal associations, bankruptcy and the death of his son were some of the things that are happening to Cafú today.
Years ago, Cafú was a clear example of life since with his foundation he helped thousands of children to eat and study but that was forgotten as his foundation could not be sustained more economically and he had to close it. That was a setback for Cafu's life since it was what kept him busy most of the days.
In addition to having to close his foundation, Cafú suffered the loss of his son, which hit him emotionally. Cafú still cannot recover from that blow that life gave him and says he leans on his loved ones to try to move on. Soccer is something very important that helps him in this situation and that is why he continues to participate in matches of legends.
Finally, the Brazilian justice investigated him for alleged illegal business with criminal associations. Although the problem was not directly with him, the Brazilian justice investigated him because he sold some properties to one of the most dangerous gangs in Sao Paulo. Cafú went from having a life of luxury to having to be more controlled and managed. Unfortunately Cafu's life took a 180 degree turn.
