Since I've been working in Palmeiras 1999 I can't finish the team without talking something about this fantastic player.

I didn't know him that much and i didn't look for Albo's set to don't get any idea of him. Been watching him at full matches and also footage and man he was so good. I found a different player from 1992-1994, older but same or even a better overall player.

His defensive contribution to help Rogerio/Galeano and Sampaio was fantastic for an original talented AMF and "old" player was amazing, really good at hounding players and steal the ball.

I'm amazed about his ball retention in tiny spaces and obviously with his very soft long passing, specially with the outside of the boot, just fantastic. So smart, always trying to not lose the ball and being the 1st passing choice for Sampaio. Always looking for Nunes or Alex in 3/4.

I think the idea is in there but man, he was really good...really really talented player. Glad to watch him.
