Roberto Carlos da Silva
Former football player for Real Madrid. World Champion with Brazil's national team
Brazilian ex-football player Roberto Carlos was born in São Paulo (Brazil) in 1973. He is currently the Director of Institutional Relations for Real Madrid and is a public speaker in leadership thanks to his great experience gained in the football scene.
He is known by many as one of the best defenders in the history of football, which he started playing in 1986. He joined the União São João team, where he matured as a player. He was known in this team for being brilliant in every category. Later, in 1992 when he was only 19, he was a recognized professional player in his country. After, he joined the Palmeiras Brazilian team where he would play as left back.
He won two national Leagues with the Brazilian team, which led him to sign for the Inter de Milan in 1995 and only a year later for Real Madrid. He played with Real Madrid for 11 years (during this time the team was commonly known as “the galactics”), where he scored 69 goals and won, among other trophies, 3 Champion Leagues. Plus, he has been awarded twice with the UEFA Club Defender of the Year. Furthermore, he became World Champion with the Brazilian national team, a champion of the FIFA Confederations Cup and a two-time champion of the America Cup.
In 2007 he waved goodbye to the Spanish team where he has played more matches than any other foreign player who has been part of it.
