Valdivia decides to stay in Brazil after abduction
Chilean player Jorge Valdivia says he will keep playing in
Brazil despite learning his wife was molested during the couple’s
abduction 10 days ago in Sao Paulo.
Valdivia says he remains shaken by the ordeal and his wife wants
them to move back to Chile, but Palmeiras says it won’t let him go
without being financially compensated.
Valdivia, who played at the 2010 World Cup, was one of
Palmeiras’ most expensive signings in 2010.
The Chilean midfielder and his wife were abducted at gunpoint
June 7 while trying to rent a movie at a shopping center in a
wealthy area in South America’s biggest city.
Valdivia’s wife later told her husband that the criminal, who
has been arrested, molested her.
