Ten years ago today you stepped onto the pitch at the Santiago Bernabéu for the first time on the day of your presentation; since then, you have matured and become a first rate player. Without a doubt, I am proud to be your agent and proud that you form part of RR Soccer Management Agency.
At 18, you were still a teenager when you arrived and thanks to your hard work and humility you have become one of the best defenders in the world. Since then, you have played 372 official matches, scored 26 goals and you have won everything: 2 Champions Leagues, 3 La Liga titles, 2 Copas del Rey, 2 European Super Cups, 2 Spanish Supercups and 1 Club World Cup. What’s more, you have twice been selected as part of the FIFA FIFPro World XI.
But what really makes you great is not your impressive roll of honours, but your own personality. You work hard to improve every day and always do so with a smile, the same one you showed when you started playing football in Brazil as a kid.
This morning you received a well-deserved tribute at the Santiago Bernabéu. It has been a pleasure to accompany you and share this moment with you.
And there’s still plenty of football left in your boots. Congratulations on so many years at the elite level, and I hope you continue to win trophies while enjoying this sport you are so passionate about.
President, RR-Soccer Management Agency
