Two of the Chapecoense players who survived the air crash in Colombia last month have returned home to Brazil. Doctors say that goalkeeper Jackson Follmann is well enough to undergo surgery on his back when he gets back to Sao Paulo.
Defender Alan Ruschel and journalist Rafael Henzel returned to the southern Brazilian city of Chapeco on Tuesday.
Another survivor, the Chapecoense defender Neto, remains in a serious condition in hospital having only woken from a coma at the weekend.
Medical staff had the duty of informing the 31-year-old player about his teammates’ deaths in the plane crash, which occurred as Chapecoense were heading to Colombia to play Atletico Nacional in the Copa Sudamericana final.
Neto woke up with no memory of the accident and it was initially decided to withhold the information about the crash until he was capable of handling the shock.
