Brazilian defender Carlos Augusto joined Inter Milan last summer from Monza. In a recent interview with the club’s TV channel, he revealed how proud he was to be wearing the Nerazzurri shirt. He feels even prouder when he knows that players like Ronaldo and Roberto Carlos have been there before him.
“Inter is a very important team, and it’s an honor to wear this shirt. Great champions have passed through here, Ronaldo was devastating, he was the one who inspired me and then there was Roberto Carlos who was incredible in my role. Outside soccer, Michael Jordan is a reference, he was impressive as a professional and as a person, I read a lot about him, he never gave up and even when he was the best in the world, he always wanted to improve. What’s important to me is that, since family and team are very similar concepts, it’s important to stick together and help each other out, especially in difficult times,” says Carlos Augusto.
