The footballstar Roberto Carlos signed the official two-year contract with Fenerbahce today infront of thousands of Fenerbahce fans, gathered in the Fenerbahce Sükrü Saracoglu Stadium for the signing ceremony.

Roberto Carlos had also visited the Fenerbahce Museum before he met the fans.

The fans showed their support to the club and cheered up for the President Aziz Yildirim and Roberto Carlos.

Aziz Yildirim began with his speech by thanking Roberto Carlos: ’I really want to thank Roberto Carlos for joining us by leaving a great club like Real Madrid. My friends Murat Özaydinli and Mahmut Uslu spoke with Carlos 1,5 ago but Real Madrid did not want to let him leave. Roberto Carlos kept his promise that he made 1,5 ago. Now he is here. I think that every little Turkish kid should take his flawless personality and precious talent as an example.’

Roberto Carlos surprised the fans by speaking in Turkish ’Fenerbahce, the greatest! Fenerbahce, the champion!’
He also stressed that he wants to win every single cup as long as he plays for Fenerbahce: ’My dream is to win the UEFA Cup with Fenerbahce. I thank the President and the directors. I hope that we will have a magnificient season.’

After the ceremony the President gave Roberto Carlos a Fenerbahce-Card and a golden Fenerbahce mobile phone which is produced only for the 100th year of Fenerbahce as a present.

Tonight Carlos goes back to Madrid and then he will fly to Sao Paola to spend his holiday.
