Chelsea star Ramires: I want Brazil return
Ramires, 25, has not been selected by coach Mano Menezes since Brazil crashed out of the Copa America at the quarter-final stage last summer.
However, following a season of top-notch performances for club-side Chelsea, the Brazilian now has a vast media campaign supporting his recall.
"I have never wanted to be out of the Selecao's plans," Ramires told Lancenet. "But it has been almost a year since I was called up for the last time.
"I will continue working hard on the field to show that I deserve to return, rather than talk off it.
"When Mano Menezes thinks that I deserve to return, then I am sure that I will be back."
