Kleberson Regrets Premier League Departure
Former Manchester United midfielder Kleberson says he regrets his decision to leave England when he departed United in 2005.
The Brazilian played for the club for four years before he left for Besiktas in Turkey. Kleberson told FourFourTwo that he wishes he had joined another Premier League club.
“If I could have changed something in my career, I would have asked to join another English team on loan instead of going to Turkey,” he said.
“I think I was improving when I left the club, but I could have showed my real potential if I’d been on loan in the same country.
“Honestly, though, my wife and I remember our days in Manchester with great affection and we miss them.
“There were things we could have done differently which would have changed things, but we were very young back then and hadn’t lived away from Brazil before.”
