A report claims that former Brazil international Warley is in hospital after being stabbed during a robbery.

Former Brazil international Warley has been rushed to hospital after being stabbed during a robbery, according to a report.

The report goes on to claim that the former player was stabbed twice in the back when the carjacking was unsuccessful.

Warley's friend, Claudio Santos, told the publication that the four-times capped striker had undergone surgery but did not provide details of his condition.
