MANÉ GARRINCHA

Manuel Francisco dos Santos (1933-1983), better known as Mané Garrincha or simply Garrincha (Little Bird), was a Brazilian footballer who is known as one of the best dribblers in the game’s history. Born with a left leg that was 6 centimeters longer than his right, Garrincha was initially declared a cripple by a doctor. However, he soon showed his immense talent as a footballer, turning professional with Botafogo when he was 18. In 12 seasons with the Rio-based club, Garrincha scored 84 goals. Internationally, Garrincha was also instrumental in driving Brazil to victory in the 1958 and 1962 World Cups. Away from the pitch, Garrincha suffered problems, fathering 14 children and eventually dying of alcoholism.
