Brazilian football legend, Roberto Carlos, has shared plans for his farewell match, in which his current side Anzhi Makhachkala will face Spanish giants, Real Madrid.
“I imagine how such a game may look,” Roberto Carlos told Sport-Express newspaper. “I'm going to talk this through with [Anzhi owner] Suleyman Kerimov. There are some ideas. But I’m sure it’ll be Anzhi and Real.”
According to the 39-year-old, there’s also a possibility the clubs will play two matches – one in Makhachkala and the other in the Spanish capital.
“We’ll try to hold the farewell game this year,” he added. “If not – then a year later.”
Roberto Carlos became a worldwide star while playing for Real Madrid, with whom he spent 11 seasons and won the UEFA Champions League three times.
He joined Anzhi in 2011, scoring five goals in 50 appearances for the club where he was soon made captain.
This March the 2002 FIFA World Cup winner played his last competitive football match and turned to coaching as he’s now helping manager, Guus Hiddink.
