Brazilian footballer Givanildo Vieira de Souza, better known as Hulk, currently plays for Atletico Mineiro.

Here are 5 amazingly insane facts about Givanildo Vieira De Souza that fans should know!
Givanildo Vieira De Souza: 5 Insane Things About The Brazilian Footballer!
1. Why is Givanildo Vieira De Souza called the Hulk?
Hulk is the identity that made De Souza win the most. Because of his pachydermic onslaught, his strength, and his resemblance to Lou Ferrigno, Givanildo Vieira de Sousa lost Campiña Grande’s baptismal certificate, and in the way of soccer, he has been renamed the Hulk.
Beyond the powerful body, and the speed when the vigorous lower body gains power, Hulk accompanies a certain grace, balance, and smoothness with the ball, the arsenal of his game.
Pampered by the fans of his country who remember him as the hero of the comics, on the other hand, his own teammates have made intense jokes and apologies for the lushness of his hips and buttocks, an obvious product of gym sessions and the player’s own biotype.
2. He should be considered a rhino instead:
an average of one goal every two games, the Brazilian has speed, his terrifying charge, worthy of an NFL career, and his lethal greed for goals, this beast would actually zoologically fit into the rhino family, with all the panics Givanildo Vieira De Souza arouses.
In small spaces, he suffers, but he does not give up, because precisely another of his virtues emerges, the ability to protect the ball, while dribbling a ball down the side or finding an escape through the relief of a teammate.
Without the green countenance, without the fits of rage, the semi-blind attacks, and the desire to confront the opponent in the clash, maybe a rhino fits him best.
