Loaned out Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Júlio César reveals reason behind Toronto moveThe Brazilian in action
Júlio César has revealed what most believed and stated initially that he has moved to MLS side Toronto FC to boost his chances of remaining Luiz Felipe Scolari’s first choice goalkeeper at the World Cup.
Terra quoted the Queens Park Rangers keeper after he linked up with the Brazil squad ahead of Wednesday’s friendly match against South Africa.
Júlio César said: “I had reached the limit. I had to make a decision to help the coaching staff.”
Scolari has been patient with the former Inter Milan keeper as he has spent the majority of the last seven months out of the first team at Loftus Road.
However, prior to the winter transfer window he spoke out and admitted the 34-year-old needed to start playing regularly again which has led to the Brazilian making the move to Canada.
Whilst speaking to Terra, Júlio César was asked about the infamous 2010 World Cup exit to the Netherlands in South Africa.
It is a savoury incident for Brazilians and Júlio César admitted it does still play on his mind.
He concluded: “Of course, I watch it over in my head what happened but it has passed and we have to think about what will happen now.”
