Thank you very much to all clubs I’ve played for: Joinville, Cruzeiro, Benfica, Chelsea, Jiangsu e Palmeiras. I’ll always carry you and the fans in my heart. Also thanks to the Brazilian Football Squad for the honor of playing 2 World Cups, which was a dream come through.
I also need to thank to all teammates, club employees, coaches and managers that I had the pleasure of working with.
To my family, mother, sons, brothers and true friends throughout this journey, thank you very much for being by my side unconditionally during all these years, cheering for every win, every title and achievement as it was your own. You were always my biggest strength and motivation.
I’ll go on a different path but with the same and courage I’ve had since I was a child, when against all odds I left a small town in Rio De Janeiro to conquer the World.
