Sao Paulo's Osvaldo wants to win Brasileiro for departing Rogerio Ceni
Sao Paulo striker Osvaldo has told Goal that he expects more from himself and his team in the forthcoming Brasileiro national championship, starting this weekend.
"Our squad is very good. We lost out in the Paulista (state tournament) but we are growing."
"The staff is knowledgable and believe in our potential. The Brasileiro is not only a dream of mine, but of all the Brazilian players. It is only fair that we win a title and do it for rogerio, who is the biggest idol of the club."
Osvaldo was speaking in reference to Rogerio Ceni, the legendary goalscoring goalkeeper, who is to retire at the end of the year having spent his entire career at the club.
Osvaldo joined Sao Paulo in 2012 and has won two Brazil caps in his time at the club. The year he joined, they won the Copa Sudamerica, the only trophy he has picked up in his time there.
