Roberto Carlos Profile

Roberto Carlos is a former Brazilian footballer who is considered to be one of the greatest left-backs in the history of the game. He was known for his incredible speed, powerful left foot, and ability to create chances for his teammates. Carlos played for some of the biggest clubs in the world and represented Brazil at the international level, leaving a lasting impression on the football world.

Born on April 10, 1973, in Garça, São Paulo, Brazil, Roberto Carlos began his footballing journey with União São João. He quickly caught the attention of bigger clubs in Brazil and was signed by Palmeiras in 1993. He helped Palmeiras win the Campeonato Brasileiro in his first season at the club and established himself as one of the best left-backs in the country.

In 1995, Carlos made a move to Europe and joined Inter Milan in Italy. However, he struggled to settle in and was loaned out to Real Madrid the following season. Carlos quickly made an impact at Real Madrid, and his performances helped the club win the La Liga title in his first season. He went on to become a crucial member of the team that won the Champions League in 1998 and again in 2000.

During his time at Real Madrid, Carlos formed a formidable partnership with Zinedine Zidane and was instrumental in the club's success in the early 2000s. He helped Real Madrid win four La Liga titles and three Champions League titles during his 11-year stint at the club.

In 2007, Carlos moved to Turkey and joined Fenerbahçe. He spent two seasons at the club before returning to Brazil to play for Corinthians. He retired from professional football in 2015, after a brief stint with the Indian Super League team, Delhi Dynamos.

Carlos' international career was equally impressive. He made his debut for Brazil in 1992 and was a key member of the team that won the World Cup in 2002. He also played in the 1998 and 2006 World Cups and helped Brazil win the Copa America in 1997 and 1999.

One of the most memorable moments of Carlos' career came in a match between Brazil and France in 1997. From a seemingly impossible angle, Carlos scored a stunning free-kick that left the French goalkeeper, Fabien Barthez, stranded. The goal is widely regarded as one of the greatest in the history of football.
