After the intervention of the 2March 6 Mancosu would have to return to Milan to find out if it was appropriate to undergo chemotherapy, appointment postponed to the end of the season as explained by the Giallorossi captain himself in his letter.
“I saw a world that I never thought I knew, I saw the terror in the eyes of the people I love, I saw the terror and concern of my wife who for the same reason lost her father this summer, I had the afraid of not being able to raise my daughter, I took exams in the best Italian centers, alongside people who to date I don’t even know if they are alive, if they have managed to overcome their illness. social, it does not matter if you are a lawyer, a footballer, a president or a normal employee, there we are all the same, all struggling with something we cannot control – we read in the post of Mancosu -. The doctors told me that my season was over and that I had to think about next year, after two weeks I was on the field running. After a month I should have returned to Milan to find out if I should have chemo or not, I haven’t gone there yet because I want to do the thing I love most in the world, play football, then we’ll see at the end of the season. I have already won. Life may not always be fair because I don’t think that neither I nor anyone else in this world deserves to have a tumor but I also think that courage must never be lacking, the courage to face all kinds of adversities that life puts before us, the courage to take responsibility, the courage to show yourself weak and be stronger than you think. For me this means being a MAN and honestly, believe me, of all the mistakes I make, of a high penalty or a mistake in front of the goalkeeper, I don’t give a shit about these things because they are things that only happen to those who take the responsibility to do, to have courage, to try, to make mistakes and try again. I decided to talk about it just now because before I didn’t feel ready, I needed to live it in privacy with the people I love and for this I want to apologize to those I lied to hide the real reason for my problem. I had an operation on March 26th and since that day I am even more proud of myself and of who I am next to “.
