"He was a talented footballer, open and friendly guy. Maicon loved life and knew how to make it positive and bright. Tragic, untimely and absurd death took away a wonderful person from our ranks," the club said in a statement published on the official website.

The 25-year-old was on a loan to the Ukrainian league club Illichivets Mariupol until the end of the 2013-14 season.
