Biggest Deadline Day Deal Sealed As Brazilian Legend Roberto Carlos Comes Out of Retirement to Join Big Club
- Roberto Carlos has dusted his boots and returned to action as the Brazilian legend comes out of retirement
- The 48-year-old has signed for British outfit Shrewsbury & District Sunday League side Bull In The Barne United
- Carlos announced his retirement from playing in 2012, but in July 2015 he was appointed player/manager of Indian Super League club Delhi Dynamos
Impressive Brazilian legend Roberto Carlos is billed to come out of retirement as he reportedly joins Shrewsbury & District Sunday League side Bull In The Barne United - and it might be the greatest deadline day signing of all time, SPORTbible reports.
It was gathered that the three-time Champions League winner is set to don the famous jersey in March in a one-off appearance after the Shrewsbury outfit won a competition.
Reports further say that Sunday League teams in the UK could now participate in eBay's ‘dream transfer raffle’, with a fee of just £5 needed to take part in the once-in-a-life opportunity.
Ed Speller, who is the club's player-manager, couldn't believe his luck after entering the competition on a whim. He said via Daily Star:
“One of my mates sent me a link to the raffle and I thought it would be a good laugh to enter, thinking nothing more of it, but when I had the email – it was just mad to be honest," he told Shropshire Star.
“Roberto Carlos is a legend and one of the top players to ever play the game, it was a proper ‘wow’ moment when we found out.
“Most people think I’m playing an elaborate trick on everyone, no-one could really believe it. I keep checking my phone thinking to myself someone might be having me on. It gets more surreal each day.
“We’re just an amateur pub team in Shropshire where everyone pays their own subs to pay, so it’s surreal to know he is coming to play with us.”

During his active playing time, Roberto Carlos was one of the best left backs in the world considering how he used to score good goals despite being a defender.
Roberto Carlos started his career in Brazil as a forward but spent most of his career as a left-back and has been described as the most offensive-minded left-back in the history of the game.
