Rivaldo hospitalized with bacterial infection after two knee surgeries
After undergoing two surgeries on his right knee, former World Player of The Year and 2002 World Cup winner Rivaldo has been admitted to hospital with a bacterial infection.
Rivaldo's right knee has brought him trouble lately, and in September this year, he had to undergo surgery on his knee to fix problems in the meniscus and cartilage. At the time, he had explained that the recovery would then take up to six months. He wrote on his official Facebook account: "After twice having surgery, I now have a bacterial infection in the same knee where the surgery was made. I'll be staying in the hospital for a few days to get some antibiotics in the vein. I know the Lord is in charge and everything will be alright."
Rivaldo, 43 years old, played in some games for Mogi Mirim this year, and was also the president of the club during the last Campeonato Brasileiro Série B.
