Last Monday, August 23, the test carried out by Ubaldo Matildo Fillol registered a positive case of coronavirus and a few days later the world of football was put on edge by his state of health. It was Pato himself who confirmed his contagion on social networks on 8/27: “I am isolated and resting in my house in San Miguel Monte under the care of my wife Olga and under the daily supervision of a doctor.” As the symptoms persisted, on 8/30 he was admitted and, almost two weeks later, he was discharged, which relieved everyone.
“Together with my wife Olga we feel full happiness to return home after 13 days of hospitalization”, was the message that the 78 world champion goalkeeper shared on social networks, after saying goodbye to the Finochietto Sanatorium in Capital Federal. In addition to thanking for the love and support received, he recommended taking care of himself and getting vaccinated to prevent COVID-19.
El Pato (71 years old), who was admitted with his wife, had to be assisted by an oxygen mask until saturation was within the usual limits. Upon leaving the clinic located in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Recoleta, he photographed himself with his partner and a doctor with the replica of the emblematic green archery diver that he used in the 1978 World Cup.
“This thank you also goes to you for your constant support and words of affection. All that love came, “said the former goalkeeper of Quilmes, Racing, River, Argentinos Juniors, Flamengo, Atlético Madrid, Racing de Santander and Vélez. In this way, the General Coordinator of the department of archers of the amateur soccer of the Millionaire returned to San Miguel del Monte to reintegrate himself into his daily life. Soon he will resume his cycle of soccer talks on the networks called Abrazo del Alma.
