The defender is one of the six lucky survivors of the Colombia airline tragedy that killed 71 people.

Reports have it that one of the first things Neto asked doctors on waking up from coma was to know who won the South American Championship.

It was also gathered that the 31-year-old questioned doctors what he was doing in the hospital and wants to know why he was not allowed to play in the final.

The plane, operated by the tiny LaMia airline, was taking the team to Colombia when it ran out of fuel.

Brazilian club Chapecoense were travelling to the city of Medellin to play the first leg of the Sudamericana Cup final against Atletico Nacional, but the plane they were travelling on ran out of fuel and crashed in Colombia.

The British-made Avro RJ85 aircraft ran out of fuel as it approached the airport in Medellin on 28 November.

However, Chapecoense have since been named as the winners of the Copa Sudamericana by South American football's governing body CONMEBOL, after their final opponents called for the Brazilian side to be given the title.

The doctors have decided not to tell Neto what befell his team until he is stable.

Only three of the club’s players survived the tragic incident.
