Dario Silva 33, has been told that he will be released from hospital later this month. The player was in a bad car crash but has refused to be down.
'After the surgery, I felt really bad but then I had no choice but to accept it.
'I really didn't expect this situation to happen to me but that's what it is.
'It's a game I've lost and I have to try to recover and hope to overcome it.
'I was at the end of my career — my reaction would have been different had I been a 20-year-old and had to sign a contract.'
'In 20 days' time, I will travel to Italy to get my leg prosthesis.
'I have some work proposals but what I really want is to recover as soon as possible and run behind a ball with my children.'
We wish Dario and his family all the best for the future.
