Real madrid have signed the 17 year old full back opare to a four year deal. Opare played for Ghana’s Ashanti Gold before signing with los merengues. A good signing from the looks of it, it will be interesting to see if schuster gives him a chance in the first team this season for real madrid in league or champions league matches. Real madrid definitely need a roberto carlos who left last season to join fenerbache in turkey because of his bad contract situation with real madrid.
His first kicks to a football date back to 1990 in Araras, a Sao Paulo quarter. The name of the team was Union San Juan. He was in the first team at the age of 14 and made his debut with the Under-16 Brazil team. He became an idol in Palmeiras and part of Brazil first team when he was only 18. He took a jump over the Atlantic to the European football in 1996 to join Inter. He arrived at Real Madrid one year later. His record as a white player is impressive. He won over all the fans with his spectacular and offensive game as well as tough tackling defensive qualities which made him such a utility player for real madrid, not to mention his endless personal values: an easy-going character, cheerful and very close to the fans. He has been confirmed as the best outside left defender in the world both for his play in Real madrid and in his national team Brazil.
Real madrid should have handed him a new contract on carlos’s terms as he has played for real madrid for more than a decade and a player as great as him should be treated with a bit more respect than real madrid showed him. After all , he is one of the greatest left backs of all time. He really inspired real madrid to the league title on many occasion, like when he scored in the 92 nd minute in te game against real zaragoza in the league which was I think very crucial as barcelona won their game so real madrid had to win in order to get on equal points with barcelona otherwise when you look at the consequent league table, real madrid would have lost the title had it been not for roberto carlos’s goal.
