Former Brazil international keeper Taffarell announces retirement after his car breaks down on his way to sign for an Italian club. He apparently took that as a bad omen or sign and cut off the deal.

The end of a good career. He wasn't really an imposing figure, he didn't command respect but rather gained it from both comrades and opponents alike due to his good nature. Thats why I'm sad at the news but wish him all the best in the future. A great competitor will be missed, so goodbye Taffarell.
