Roberto Carlos produces outrageous pass during Real Madrid Legends game

Published Add your comment

Roberto Carlos proved he has still got it by producing a remarkable pass in a showcase game between Real Madrid Legends and Liverpool Legends at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium. 

Carlos, who is now 42, displayed the flare that made him famous during his career by flicking the ball up to himself, before launching a cross-field pass straight to the feet of Michael Salgado. (To see Carlos' pass, scroll to the video below) 

With Zinedine Zidane, Fernando Morientes and Claude Makelele also in action, the Real Madrid legends won 4-2 against Liverpool.

Real Madrid legend still deadly from set-pieces

The pass was not the only standout moment for the legendary full-back, as he reminded fans of his famous shot power by blasting penalties past Jerzy Dudek and Sander Westerveld. 

Perhaps we should not be surprised at Carlos' ability to go against the norm, after-all, he did score that ridiculous free-kick against France in 1997.

Carlos disagrees with Ancelotti sacking

Carlo Ancelotti was sacked as Real Madrid manager earlier this month and the decision has been deemed controversial, with the Italian boasting a win ratio of 74.79%, the second highest of any manager to take charge at the Bernabeu.

Benitzez, who started his coaching career in the Spanish capital, was quickly appointed to replace Ancelotti, and Carlos told Marca that Ancelotti should have been given more time, but the appointment of the ex-Liverpool manager is a good decision. 

"I didn't agree with Carlo Ancelotti's departure, just like I didn't agree when Vicente del Bosque and Jupp Heynckes were sacked back in the day," Carlos said.

"You have to let coaches do their work, but it's Florentino's decision; he's in charge.

"Benitez is in a fine period of his career and can do very well at Real Madrid. He's a good choice; he's a good coach and he knows the club inside out. I wish him the best: it's not an easy job.

"The culture is based on winning all the time and if you go a while without winning a trophy, there's a big crisis.

"That's not just the case at Real Madrid, though: it's the same at Chelsea, Barcelona, Manchester United and City."
