QPR's Julio Cesar hints at Flamengo return
QPR's Julio Cesar has hinted at a possible return to boyhood club Flamengo before he calls an end to his glittering career.
Speaking to TV Globo, Cesar says his family have urged him to return to Brazil and to Flamengo, the club he started his career out.
"I had this idea fixed in my mind of leaving Brazilian football. It was in the spur of the moment. I think I was very unhappy leaving. I still think about playing in Brazil, if I get the chance. Why not?
"I was passionate about Inter, but passion is not the same as love. Passion is a fleeting thing. Love is a completely different thing. That`s how it is between me and Flamengo," he said.
"My cousin went to the US before I became a professional with Flamengo. Now he is asking me to return to the club because he is a big fan."
Cesar also still hangs onto the hope of being called up for the Seleção, having been dropped from the squad by former coach Mano Menezes.
"I believe I can return. I dream of being world champion. When you have a dream, you should always chase it. I want to kiss that cup. It is the pinnacle of a career. If I have the strength to chase it, I will."
