Roberto Carlos: I Was Joking About Neymar’s Real Madrid Move
Roberto Carlos said “I only said what I said as a joke and someone took it seriously, But Madrid always signs the best players in the world.” If you remember, Carlos stated that he can bring Brazilian superstar Neymar to Real Madrid as he previously said
“I can bring Neymar to Real Madrid. He is still very young and I am sure next year he will finish higher in the Ballon D’or.”
“I’m happy that Madrid may be interested in giving me a job, but I am only here to watch the squad training and to learn. I am about to start my top level coaching studies. I’ve already spent five years coaching in Turkey, Russia and India. But I’ve got a lot to learn and I need to take things one step at a time.”
Roberto Carlos is currently spending time in the Spanish capital where he is watching Zinedine Zidane’s Madrid team up close and personal, but he has played down rumors of an immediate move on to the club’s coaching staff.
