Tell us about your childhood.
Well being from a poor family I had to endure a lot to get
get where I arrived, I lost my father 8 years old my father
had a dream to see my older brother become a professional
footballer. That was not possible because in 1988 he died,
and my brother had to give up his dream to work and help
my mother. We are 6 brothers, I being the least among them
knowing of my father's dream I started acompanhr my brother
at football matches he would play with his friends. I picked
up a taste for football, although my mother says that since
I was a little crazy for soccer she talks with all property
that the first word I spoke was gool "rsrsrsr".
I will not doubt because my mother told me ... I grew up
in the neighborhood carandiru encountered many difficulties
there, because living in a slum is far from easy, and in
life nothing is easy to achieve something we have to endure
what we want ... I went through all the difficulties that
u can imagine .. hunger, with nothing to wear, asking food
in homes, ask for money in the headlights, was picking cardboard
on the streets, would select food garbage etc. ... if there's
something I pride myself on talk is that I never in my life
took something that did not belong to me the contrary was
always in search of my ideas ... and my mother who was insentivou
me in the hardest moment of my life when I retire from football
decedi year 1998 saw my mother working hard ... and when
I told her that I would leave the football to help her she
told me, now u è later lost his studies in pursuit
of his dream ... then do not give up because I can aguenter
a little more.

players dream of one day building a Brazilian team, my first
call for Selecting happened in 2002 right after the world
title that year. I lived moments of joy in the selection

of joy and victory.
