Roberto Carlos is dreaming of coaching in the Premier League after missing out on experiencing it as a player.

The former Brazil left-back spent the majority of his career in Europe with Real Madrid, but he has revealed he could have joined Chelsea when he left Spain in 2007.

The deal, however, did not go through and Carlos went to Turkish side Fenerbahce instead.

The 48-year-old regrets not playing in England during his playing career and he hopes that one day he may get the chance to coach there as he is working on becoming a manager.

“The Premier League is one the best leagues in the world and of course I wish I had played in England during my career,” said Carlos.

“I had the opportunity to go to Chelsea in 2007 and I wanted to make the move, but the deal didn’t go through because of some small details.

“However, I’m studying to become a manager at the moment. I might not have played in the Premier League, but hopefully I will one day be able to experience England as a manager.”

Roberto Carlos took part in #TheToughestTest to celebrate the launch of the brand-new life-proof Nokia XR20 5G smartphone, available to purchase now.
