Júlio César thanks Scolari and Parreira for support
Júlio César has thanked two of the figures in charge of helping Brazil try to win the World Cup for their support during the 2013/14 season where he has spent the majority of his time on the bench.
Sky Sports reported the news after it was annouced that the Queens Park Rangers keeper had agreed a loan move to MLS club Toronto FC.
And speaking to Globo Esporte he thanked Luiz Felipe Scolari and Carlos Alberto Parreira for their support.
It had emerged before César agreed his move to Canada that his position as Brazil's number one might come into question should he continue to warm the bench at Loftus Road.
"What Luis Felipe Scolari and Carlos Alberto Parreira have been doing for me is incredible," said César.
"I think the time came for me to help them somehow, by playing as it was very complicated to be in the Brazilian national team without playing.
"Competition is very fierce. The pressure is huge, the demands too, especially on them both.
"I never feared being out of the national team as my relation with Scolari and Parreira has always been very open."
The 34-year-old will hope his vital playing time in the MLS will help improve his sharpness ahead of the World Cup this summer.
