Brazilian great Roberto Carlos is heading to Singapore

Legendary Brazilian Roberto Carlos will be in Singapore next week to conduct a range of coaching sessions.

The 43-year-old, who spent about half of his 24-year playing career with Real Madrid, will present the Real Madrid Foundation Clinics at Stamford American International School.

Members of the Real Madrid Technification School will have the chance to train with him, while Carlos will also visit ITE College Central.

Renowned for his powerful free-kicks that often led to some spectacular goals, Carlos was an attack-minded left-back who won the 2002 World Cup with the five-time champions.

He was also runner-up in the Ballon d’Or that year, while he picked up a swag of club honours during his career, including three Champions League crowns and four Spanish La Liga titles with Real.

He retired in 2015 and has tried his hand at management, as well as being a Real Madrid ambassador.
