2 – RIVALDO – VT

THE SEARCH FOR A GENUINE PLAYMAKER AT SÃO PAULO APPEARS TO BE OVER
AFTER THE CLUB ANNOUNCED THAT 2002 WORLD CUP WINNER RIVALDO WILL BE
WEARING THEIR NUMBER TEN SHIRT.
RIVALDO: ‘’I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THAT TODAY IS A VERY EMOTIONAL DAY FOR
ME, AND I DID NOT EXPECT IT. SO MUCH PRESS, AND EVERYONE WANTING TO
INTERVIEW RIVALDO. I AM A SIMPLE PERSON, DISCREET, AND DON´T LIKE TO
APPEAR MUCH. I AM VERY HAPPY WITH THE SÃO PAULO FANS, I SAW IT ON THE
INTERNET, AND ON TV, EVERYONE SUPPORTING MY ARRIVAL AT THE CLUB. I
HOPE TO GIVE BACK WEARING THIS SHIRT’’.

AT THE START OF THIS PAULISTA, THE 38 YEAR OLD WAS PRESIDENT OF MOGI
MIRIM.

BUT AFTER SWITCHING TO THE MORUMBI, RIVALDO HAS HAD TO LEAVE HIS
MANAGEMENT POSITION AT THE MINNOWS.

RIVALDO: ‘’WHAT HAPPENED WAS THAT ROGERIO CAME UP TO ME IN THE LOCKER
ROOM AND ASKED IF I WOULD LIKE TO PLAY AT SÃO PAULO. I THOUGHT IT WAS
WIERD, THAT IT WAS A JOKE. THEN OUTSIDE OF THE LOCKER ROOM HE INSISTED
AND THE DAY AFTER I WAS ALREADY TALKING TO THE ASSISTANT MILTON CRUZ
AND PRESIDENT JUVENAL’’.

IN THE 2002 WORLD CUP IN JAPAN/KOREA RIVALDO STRUCK FIVE TIMES AND
WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN BRAZIL LANDING THEIR FIFTH CHAMPIONSHIP.

NOW THE MIDFIELDER WANTS TO PERFORM A SIMILAR ROLE AT SÃO PAULO.

RIVALDO: ‘’I WOULD LIKE TO PLAY AS A CREATIVE MIDFIELDER, AS I PLAYED MY
ENTIRE LIFE. NOT AT BARCELONA WHERE I PLAYED ON THE LEFT, BUT AS I
PLAYED WITH BRAZIL. TO PLAY WITHOUT A FIXED POSITION, CREATE PLAYS,
PROVIDE LONG PASSES, AND MAKE PLAYS TOWARDS THE GOAL FOR SÃO PAULO’’.

BEFORE WINNING THE WORLD CUP, RIVALDO HAD MASSIVE SUCCESS AT
BARCELONA WHERE HE WAS VOTED FIFA'S WORLD PLAYER OF THE YEAR IN 1999.

RIVALDO: ‘’IT´S GOOD FOR HISTORY, AND YOUR HISTORY COUNTS A LOT. THERE
IS RESPECT FROM THE FANS AND PRESS, BUT I WILL NOT LIVE OF THE PAST. IT´S
JUST THE PAST, IT´S A TURNED PAGE, WHAT I DID WAS COOL BUT I NOW HAVE
TO DO SOMETHING FOR SÃO PAULO, WIN TITLE, HAVE GREAT GAMES’’.

NOW 38 THE PLAYER KNOWS THAT KEEPING HIMSELF IN TOP SHAPE IS KEY TO
SUCCESS AT SÃO PAULO.

RIVALDO WAS ALREADY IN THE PROCESS OF GETTING HIMSELF FIT AT MOGI
MIRIM AND NOW FEELS HE'S READY TO TURN OUT FOR HIS NEW CLUB.

RIVALDO: ‘’I CAN SPEAK FOR MYSELF, I´VE TAKEN CARE OF MYSELF. I DON´T
SMOKE, OR DRINK, AND I ALWAYS STAY HOME. YOU ALL KNOW THAT THERE ARE
NEVER ANY NEGATIVE NEWS IN THE PRESS, PAPERS, AND TV ABOUT ME’’.

RIVALDO HAS ALREADY BEEN CLEARED BY FIFA AND IS FREE TO PLAY FOR SÃO
PAULO.

HOWEVER, THE SITUATION WITH FORMER CLUB BUNYODKOR IS FAR FROM
SETTLED.

THE MIDFIELDER APPEARED 53 TIMES FOR THE UZBEKISTANI TEAM SCORING 33
GOALS, BUT HE IS STILL OWED MONEY BY HIS FORMER EMPLOYERS.
RIVALDO: ‘’AS FAR AS UZBEQUISTAN I HAVE PEOPLE IN SWITZERLAND HANDLING
THAT SITUATION WITH FIFA. IT´S A VERY DELICATE SITUATION. I WAS THERE
FOR ONE YEAR AND THE PRESIDENTE ALL OF A SUDDEN WENT BANKRUPT. THEY
SAY THE COUNTRY´S PRESIDENT TOOK EVERYTHING FROM HIM AND I HAD TO
COME BACK. I HAD TO BREACH MY CONTRACT. BECAUSE OF THE TRUST I HAD IN
THE PRESIDENT I PLAY FOR A YEAR WITHOUT GETTING PAID’’.

DESPITE PLAYING A CRUCIAL PART IN BRAZIL'S 2002 WORLD CUP WIN, RIVALDO
DIDN'T RECEIVE THE SAME HERO'S WELCOME THAT WAS ACCORDED TO
TEAMMATES RONALDO AND RONALDINHO GAUCHO.

THIS THOUGH DOESN'T APPEAR TO BOTHER THE VETERAN.

RIVALDO: ‘’NO PARTY WAS NEEDED. I AM HERE AND VERY HAPPY. AS I´VE SAID
MY ENTIRE LIFE, I HAVE TO DO MY WORK ON PITCH. PARTIES, THOSE TYPE OF
THINGS DON´T WIN GAMES’’.

EVEN THOUGH HE'LL TURN 39 IN APRIL, THE PLAYER REFUSES TO CONSIDER
RETIREMENT.

RIVALDO: ‘’I HAVE AN OPTION IN MY CONTRACT. IT DEPENDS ON ME, ON MY
PERFORMANCE ON PITCH AND I HOPE I CAN CORRESPOND IN ORDER TO PLAY
ONE MORE YEAR FOR SÃO PAULO. ANY PLAYER AT MY AGE WOULD LOVE TO BE
PLAYING FOR ONE OF THE WORLDS BIGGEST CLUBS’’.

THERE WERE BIG QUEUES OUTSIDE THE MORUMBI FOR RIVALDO'S DEBUT
AGAINST LINENSE IN ROUND SIX OF THE SÃO PAULO STATE LEAGUE.

DESPITE HIS VAST EXPERIENCE, RIVALDO WAS CLEALY A LITTLE NERVOUS
BEFORE HIS START.

BUT AFTER THE WHISTLE, HE SOON BEGAN TO SHOW THAT HE HADN'T
FORGOTTEN HOW TO PLAY!

OUR CAMERAS WERE THERE TO CAPTURE THE NUMBER TEN'S EVERY MOVE.

RIVALDO WAS SOON TAKING CONTROL.

AND LOOKING DANGEROUS WHEN SÃO PAULO MOVED FORWARD.

THE 38 YEAR OLD DEFIED HIS YEARS WHEN HE HAD TO DEFEND.

AND PRODUCED FLASHES OF HIS ABILITY.

BUT THINGS DIDN'T GO TO PLAN AND IT WAS LINENSE THAT STRUCK FIRST - A
GOAL FROM ERIC IN THE SECOND-HALF.

WITH SÃO PAULO TRAILING, THE PRESSURE WAS ON THE NEW MAN AND HE
DIDN'T DISAPPOINT.

MARLOS TURNED THE GAME AROUND.

WHEN JEAN WAS STOPPED ON THE EDGE OF THE AREA, SÃO PAULO'S FREE KICK
SPECIALIST ROGERIO CENI TOOK OVER, AND RIVALDO WITNESSED HIS CAPTAIN
SCORE HIS 95TH GOAL IN HIS CAREER!
LINENSE WEREN'T FINISHED AND PULLED ONE BACK THROUGH ALESSANDRO
CAMBALHOTA.

SÃO PAULO 3, LINENSE 2 THE FINAL SCORE.

OFF TO A WINNING START, THE PLAYER KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT HE WANTS TO
ACHIEVE AT THE CLUB.

RIVALDO: ‘’ I WANT TO BE CHAMPION’’.

HOW LONG RIVALDO KEEPS PLAYING WILL DEPEND ON THE AMOUNT OF SUCCESS
HE ENJOYS AT SÃO PAULO.

1 – PALMEIRAS X CORINTHIANS – VT

ON ONE SIDE PALMEIRAS, A TEAM THAT HAD WON THEIR LAST 5 PAULISTA
MATCHES.
THE OTHER, RIVALS CORINTHIANS, WHO WERE UNDER PRESSURE FOR GOING
OUT OF THE LIBERTADORES´ FIRST ROUND TO COLOMBIA´S TOLIMA.

WITH RONALDO AND ROBERTO CARLOS INJURED EVERYONE EXPECTED THE
GREENS TO HAVE AN EASY TIME IN THE CITY OF SÃO PAULO´S FIERCEST DERBY.

RIGHT FROM THE EARLY MOMENTS KLÉBER GIACOMAZZI AND ALESSANDRO
BEGAN A PERSONAL BATTLE THAT WOULD LAST TO THE FINAL WHISTLE.

WHEN KLEBER FINALLY FOUND SOME SPACE, HE SET UP LUIZ TINGA FOR
PALMEIRAS EARLY ATTEMPT.

THE MUSKETEERS WERE EQUALLY QUICK TO REACT, AFTER JUCILEI´S ONE TWO
WITH EDNO, MARCOS WAS CALLED INTO ACTION.

THE MATCH PICKS UP.

AND KLEBER ONCE AGAIN TURNS UP THE HEAT, BUT JULIO CESAR WAS EQUAL TO
THE CHALLENGE DENYING THE HEADER.

THE GREENS PRESSURE CONTINUED AND MAURICIO RAMOS MISSED A GOLDEN
OPPORTUNITY.

MARCOS ASSUNÇÃO ALSO COMES CLOSE FROM FAR OUT.

THE TEMPERATURE BETWEEN KLEBER AND ALESSANDRO CONTINUES ON THE
RISE.

THE GLADIATOR LEAVES THE RIGHTBACK BEHIND TWICE BUT FAILS TO HIT THE
NET.

KLEBER CONTINUES IN THE MIDDLE OF THINGS IN THE SECOND HALF AND A
MORE SOLID TOUCH TO COMPLETE ADRIANO JACKSON´S CROSS WOULD HAVE
PUT PALMEIRAS IN FRONT.

BUT IT WAS ALESSANDRO WHO WOULD HAVE THE LAST LAUGH. THE RIGHTBACK
COMBINED WITH MORAIS AND KEPT HIS COOL TO PUT THE BALL PASSED THE
LEGENDARY MARCOS.

KLEBER WAS NOT NOT PLEASED WITH HIS NEMESIS.

AND REFUSED TO GIVE IN.

BUT JULIO CESAR PREVAILED.

AND THE BAR STOPPED PATRIK SILVA´S FOLLOW UP.

CORINTHIANS RETAIN THEIR INVINCIBILITY IN THE PAULISTA AND IMPOSE
THEIR BITTER RIVAL´S FIRST DEFEAT IN THE SÃO PAULO STATE LEAGUE.

3 – TOP SCORER – VT

ELANO AND MAIKON LEITE ADDED ONE TO THEIR TALLY LAST WEEK. THE
SANTOS' MEN ARE STILL SHARING THE LEAD OF THE TOP STRIKERS TABLE WITH
6 GOALS.

CHARLES MOURA OF AMERICANA AND BRAGANTINO'S JUNINHO QUIXADA ARE IN
THE CHASE WITH 5 A PIECE.

4 – RONALDINHO – VT

LAST WEDNESDAY RONALDINHO MADE HIS LONG-AWAITED DEBUT FOR NEW
CLUB FLAMENGO.

THE 42,000 ECSTATIC FANS TURNED UP TO THE ESTADIO ENGENHÃO FOR THE
MATCH VERSUS NOVA IGUAÇU IN THE RIO STATE LEAGUE.

OUTSIDE THE STADIUM THE SOUVENIR SELLERS WERE THERE IN FORCE READY
TO CASH IN ON THE START OF THE TWO TIMES FIFA WORLD PLAYER OF THE YEAR
AND SALES WERE HOT.

INSIDE THE ENGENHÃO, R10 RECEIVED AN EXTRAORDINARY WELCOME FROM THE
SUPPORTERS, AND THE 30-YEAR-OLD CLEARLY ENJOYED THE MOMENT.

FORMER CAPTAIN LEO MOURA MADE A SPECIAL PRESENTATION HANDING OVER
THE CAPTAIN'S ARM BAND TO THE NEW MAN IN CHARGE.

RONALDINHO: ‘’I HAVEN´T PLAYED IN SUCH A LONG TIME AND HAVE TO GET
INTO THE RYTHMN OF THINGS, WITH PEOPLE I´VE NEVER PLAYED WITH SO I
HAVE TO THANK MY TEAMMATES FOR ALL THE SUPPORT ON PITCH’’.

THE CROWD WERE ANXIOUS TO SEE RONALDINHO IN ACTION.
AND AGAINST THE RIO MINNOWS, THE 2002 WORLD CUP WINNER SHOWED
FLASHES OF THE FORM THAT ONCE MADE HIM THE BEST PLAYER ON THE PLANET.

THE ATTACKING MIDFIELDER SAW PLENTY OF THE BALL.

THE OLD TRICKS WERE THERE.

AND HE CREATED CHANCES FOR HIS TEAM MATES.

BUT RONALDINHO'S BEST MOMENT CAME WHEN HE TESTED KEEPER DIOGO SILVA
WHO PULLED OFF AN EXCELLENT SAVE TO DENY THE NUMBER TEN.

DESPITE THE PLAYER'S PRESENCE, FLAMENGO STRUGGLED AGAINST THE
OPPOSITION.

BUT FIVE MINUTES BEFORE STOPPAGE TIME SILVA FAILED TO HOLD ON TO
THIAGO NEVE'S EFFORT AND WANDERLY POUNCED FOR THE WINNER.

THE ENGENHÃO ERUPTED AND RONALDINHO WAS OVERJOYED.

THREE MORE POINTS IN THE BAG FOR FLA IN THEIR SEARCH FOR THE RIO TITLE.

AND THE PLAYERS AND SUPPORTERS SHOWED THEIR APPRECIATION OF THE NEW
BOY'S EFFORTS AT THE FINAL WHISTLE.

RONALDINHO'S FAMILY WERE ALSO OUT IN FORCE.

EVEN THOUGH HE FAILED TO SCORE ON HIS DEBUT, THE FLAMENGO CAPTAIN
WAS HAPPY WITH HIS FIRST GAME AND THE RECEPTION OF THE FANS.

RONALDINHO: ‘’IT´S ONE OF THE BIGGEST EMOTIONS I´VE EVER FELT, AND I
ALWAYS TOLD EVERYONE THAT EVERYBODY HAS A LITTLE BIT OF FLAMENGO
INSIDE THEM, AND IT HAS GROWN INSIDE OF ME IN SUCH A WAY THAT I WILL
NEVER FORGET FLAMENGO’’.

RONALDINHO STILL HAS SOME WAY TO GO BEFORE HE RETURNS TO FULL
FITNESS.

AND WHEN HE DOES THE FLAMENGO FANS WILL BE SEEING MUCH MORE OF THIS,
AS THE RUBRO NEGROS ATTEMPT TO BECOME THE TOP CLUB IN RIO ONCE AGAIN.

5 – TOP FIVE – VT

MAIKON LEITE MAKES THE BEST OF ELANO'S BACKHEEL PASS, SAVES A POINT
FOR SANTOS AGAINST PONTE IN ROUND 6 AND KICK STARTS THIS WEEK'S TOP
FIVE PLAYS.

4. ESLEY´S FIRST TIME EFFORT OPENS WAY FOR MIRASSOL'S 2-1 TRIMPH OVER
BRAGANTINO.

JULIO CÉSAR CROWNS HIS GREAT DISPLAY AGAINST BITTER RIVALS PALMEIRAS
WITH AN AMAZING SAVE TO DENY KLEBER GIACOMAZZI. THE CORINTHIANS
KEEPER GRABS OUR THIRD PICK.

NUMBER 2! RODRIGO POSSEBON SHOWS OUTSTANDING CONTROL AND BANGS IT
HOME FOR SANTOS' EQUALIZER AGAINST SANTO ANDRÉ.
BUT THE BEST PLAY OF THE WEEK GOES TO RIVALDO, WHO SHOWS HIS
WELCOME CARD IN THE 3-2 VICTORY OVER LINENSE IN THE 6TH ROUND.
