SAO PAULO, July 11 � It was around 2.30 pm at the media centre of Sao Paulo�s Arena de Sao Paulo. We were all busy in filing reports. Suddenly I noticed that Roberto Carlos, guarded by two well built persons approach the press box. I took out my camera to take a shot. I ran to overtake him and finally managed to take a photograph. He seemed to be very gentle and polite as he posed for me for a few seconds. I asked what happened to Brazil in the semifinal.
Carlos promptly replied �Very poor Brazil team�. By this time a few more mediapersons gathered around him and before anybody could quiz him further, the security persons whisked him away. Later I came to know that he is an expert commentator for a local TV channel.
Donning Brazilian colours from 1992 to 2006, Carlos is now coaching Sivaspor, a Brazilian Super league team, after hanging his boots in 2012. Famous as The Bullet Man, Carlos is still remembered for his overlapping from the left back position to support his frontliners and sometimes scoring goals with his bullet like shots.
The stocky Brazilian defender who was the hero of the World Cup Brazilian team in 2002 is still fighting fit and maintaining a sound physique.
