Carlos snubs English offers

06 Jun 2007 - 11:56:37

Brazilian legend Roberto Carlos will leave Real Madrid this summer and head to Turkey to join Fenerbahce, having turned down offers from England.

The 34-year-old left-back has been at the Bernabeu for more than a decade, but feels the time is right for one last major challenge in his illustrious career.

The Brazilian ace told Marca: "They are the club who were most interested in signing me and I have been convinced of the plans which they want to develop.

"I had other offers from teams in Italy, England and other countries, but Fenerbahce want to grow as a club and I want to help them.

"They have spoken with me a lot and what has been very important for me to take this decision is that Zico is their coach."

The player's agent, Dino Pasalic, added: "He made a promise to Fenerbahce last year and Carlos always keeps his promises."

Roberto Carlos has won 125 caps for his country - being a member of the 2002 World Cup-winning squad - and has helped Real to three Champions League crowns and three Primera Liga titles.
