A famous Brazilian footballer Sergio Ricardo Neves has been spotted in Mecca. During his football career, 44-year-old Ricardo managed to play in a number of clubs not only in Brazil, but also in Saudi Arabia and Turkey. Recently, he publicly stated that he had converted to Islam. “Alhamdu lillah, now I’m a Muslim, and I think you understand that this is the best solution in my life,” said the Muslim convert in social networks.
A week after that, Neves was spotted in Mecca, where he died. A white-haired Brazilian enthusiastically performed the rites of the small Hajj, along with his Saudi club mate Muhammad Suwayd.
