Carlos Eduardo aims to win trophies with Flamengo
Flamengo's new signing Carlos Eduardo has made it his aim to win trophies with the club after completing a loan move from Rubin Kazan.
The Brazilian arrived at the Engenhão on a 18-month loan deal and sasy he hopes to get his career back on track after a torrid time in Russia.
"My goal is to return to the Brazil national team, however, first I want to help Flamengo win something," he told Lancenet. "Flamengo are one of the biggest clubs in the world. The fans here are great and they were a key factor in my decision."
Eduardo endured a nightmare period of his career in Russia as he failed to get back into the team following a serious knee injury that required surgery.
"The coach at Rubin Kazan was afraid to play me after because I still felt a lot of pain. In 2012, as a result, I barely played. The year did not work out well for me."
But the new Flamengo no.10 says he has fully recovered from his injuries and hopes to return to first team action soon.
"I have recovered well from my injury, but I have to improve my physical part. Despite doing two workouts a day, it is not the same when you do it at training," he added.
"I think in two weeks I will be back to my ideal weight and I could be ready.”
