Brazil coach Tite sent a message of support to Pel? from the World Cup on Thursday.

Pel? was hospitalized Tuesday in Sao Paulo to regulate the medication in his fight against a colon tumour, his daughter Kely Nascimento said. She added that there was “no emergency” concerning her 82-year-old father’s health.

“We all want to wish good health to Pel?,” said Tite, whose given name is Adenor Leonardo Bacchi, in Qatar a day before Brazil’s next match against Cameroon.

Brazil, seeking its first World Cup title in two decades, reached the round of 16 after two group matches. The team needs a draw against Cameroon to finish first in Group G.

“(Pel?) is our biggest extraterrestrial representative,” Tite joked.

Pel? was listed in stable condition after arriving at the hospital “for a reevaluation of the chemotherapeutic treatment of the tumour.” The hospital said the former great “has full control of his vital functions” and was not taken to intensive or semi-intensive care units for treatment.
