Roberto Carlos, on Baptista: “He is a great friend. He still trains a lot, almost more than before. His career speaks for itself. He came to Madrid because he had a lot of quality and here he proved to be a very strong player, to have a lot of class … Also in the Brazilian team.”Baptista, about Liga 31: “It was an incredible experience. Real Madrid has always been and always will be a team that wins with suffering, with the players struggling, and against Osasuna it was no different. We were left with ten, Schuster made very offensive changes and the courage and the Our courage to save that League made that day something incredible. “Baptista, about that Madrid from 2007-08: “It had changed a bit, with younger players, but it was still competitive. It was necessary to adapt, but that in Madrid does not exist because titles are always needed. And we got the League.” It’s been 12 years of League 31 of Real Madrid and the club’s television has brought together one of its protagonists this Monday, Julio Baptista, and Roberto Carlos. The two intimate Brazilians have reviewed anecdotes from their player stages at the Bernabéu. His decisive goal in the Camp Nou Classic: “It was a very important moment because we came from behind Barcelona and beating them in their field was a blow at the table to go for the title. We were very psyched about what we could do. It was a very very good match in all aspects and I had the fortune to score the goal to win that game. The play was very fast, the ball bounced and I waited a bit because they are the most difficult balls to catch and hit as well as possible. I cannot say that I wanted to put it there because it was Impossible, but it turned out better than I wanted. It was very important, especially within Madrid, so it is a Classic, scoring, especially at the Camp Nou. It is one of the most important in my career. “Roberto Carlos, on whether Baptista is the strongest player he has agreed with: “I think so. He is a different player, look at the power he has. It took him a long time to find his position in Europe, but in Sevilla, having the freedom to play, he scored many goals. And in Madrid, with great players, the same People were very happy with him. He dribbled well, he jumped well … “.Baptista, on the power of Roberto Carlos: “I never saw and we will never see the ball hit as hard as Roberto Carlos.”Roberto Carlos, on the Galacticos: “There were 60,000 people in the stadium to watch our warm-up. It wasn’t just because of the warm-up, we went out to make people believe that Madrid could not lose at the Bernabéu. The most important thing is that we were friends on and off the field” .Roberto Carlos, on the new generation of Brazilians: “They are still young, but they are already proving to be great players. Vinicius has shown in Madrid and has gone with the Absolute. Rodrygo, with his calmness, has shown Zidane that he is available to help the team with his joy when he needs it. Reinier, in his first matches with Castilla, has shown what the Brazilian player is like, making a difference and showing Zidane that he is ready for when he needs him. Also with Brazil. “
