Can you tell us about Cruzeiro?
Cruzeiro is a club with some great professionals and a great history. They've won a lot of titles. It's a great place for any player, and players always leave with wonderful memories and hope to return one day.
What about Cruzeiro's fans?
There are lots of them, and they're very passionate. They appreciate the younger players. They really get behind the team and are always there. The stadium is full every home match, there's a noisy atmosphere, and the players love it.
What's it like living in Belo Horizonte?
I'm from Rio de Janeiro which is by the sea and it's hot. Belo-Horizonte is much quieter. The climate is cooler, and it's a really nice place to live. As soon as I arrived, I settled in very quickly and was able to work well.
What's your biggest memory of your time there?
That's where everything started, where I played my first match as a pro, and where I made a name for myself. I'm thankful to Cruzeiro for giving me that chance, for working with the young players and showing faith in me. Today I'm grateful for everything they've done.
