“I couldn’t believe it,” stated Capello referring to the fact that the player was to be sold. “I had received some reports saying that Carlos was annoyed with his manager at Inter, Roy Hodgson.”

“Shortly after I arrived at Real, an agent called me to say that Inter were selling Roberto Carlos. I sent a fax, spoke with the president and the next day the deal was done. It could have been the quickest signing in history,” joked the Italian.
