Corinthians: Roberto Carlos moving to Russian club
Corinthians says veteran left back Roberto Carlos has signed for
Russian club Anzhi.
The Brazilian club says he will be paid $9 million a year.
Corinthians did not release further details of the transfer, but
local media reported that the player agreed to a two-year contract
with the Russian club, with an option for another year.
The27-year-old Carlos said he left Corinthians because he and
his family received threats from fans after the team’s elimination
from the Copa Libertadores on Feb. 2. His contract was to expire at
the end of the year.
The former Brazil and Real Madrid left back played 64 matches
for Corinthians, scoring five goals.
