Following the terrible events of Monday’s plane crash, that saw numerous members of Brazil’s Chapecoense club among the 75 killed, various rival teams have offered to help the grieving club get back on its feet. In addition to condolence, a group of Brazilian clubs have offered to loan players to Chapecoense free of charge. Furthermore, the clubs have asked Brazil’s governing soccer body to ensure Chapecoense cannot be relegated from the top flight for the next three seasons. Nice touch.
Corinthians, Fluminense, Santos, São Paulo, Cruzeiro and many other clubs all pledged their efforts to help Chapecoense through this terribly difficult time.
