I've slept with Ronaldo more times than my wife! - Roberto Carlos

The Brazilian World Cup winner has discussed his time as a Galactico at Santiago Bernabeu alongside his old friend

Former Brazil defender Roberto Carlos has lifted the lid on his time at Real Madrid.

The full-back, famed for his rocket of a left foot from dead ball situations, was a key member of Real’s ‘Galactico’ sides, and he admitted that the players may have wielded too much power at the club in that era.

Carlos has fond memories of a “crazy” time, especially that spent with a friend from their early days back home in Brazil.

Another short-lived appointment was Vanderlei Luxemburgo, and Carlos says he and his pal Ronaldo saw him off after a controversial decision to limit players' access to pre-match beer and wine.

“Ronaldo and me told him: ‘Professor, people here have their habits, you’ll see what they are, but don’t try to change them. Don’t take the wine off the table or stop the beers before dinner or you’ll find yourself with a problem'.

“What did he do? First he took away the wine, then he banned the beers. He lasted three months. Football is a small world, the directors heard about it and it was “adios.””
