Corinthians striker Emerson Sheik promises more of the same next season
Corinthians striker Emerson Sheik has revealed that he is looking forward to a rest now that the season is finally over, but promised his fans more of the same in 2013.
Sheik, 34, who played a key part in the Timão’s successes this year after scoring both goals to help Corinthians beat Boca Juniors in the Copa Libertadores final in July, cannot wait to get to his beach home in Angra dos Reis and chill out.
"I turn on the television and forget about everything," he told Globo Esporte.
"I love the sofa, the sofa’s at home I make a point of choosing. It is where I am most of the time. Looks like I'm the guy fucking crazy over the world, but I love staying home alone."
And the former Fluminense striker has assured fans that he will not ease up next season after such a successful 2012.
"The least that the athlete has to do is run on the field, and strive to devote. It is not required to do ten goals, that's not in the contract, does not always win, but dedication and commitment cannot be missing.
"I'm in a club that pays me on time, and I gain well to do what I like. Any fan likes to see that the guy is committed to the job."
