Roberto Carlos to coach Turkish Sivasspor club
Former Real Madrid linebacker Roberto Carlos has agreed to coach Turkish Super League's Sivasspor club, Xinhua reported, citing Turkish Today's Zaman.
Sivasspor officials announced that they had offered the coaching job to Carlos after former coach Riza Calimbay called it quits.
The former Brazilian international reportedly accepted the offer after consulting with friends from his time with Fenerbahce.
Sivasspor will officially announce the deal in the coming days.
Carlos, member of Brazil's national team in 1998, 2002 and 2006, was known for his thundering shooting and curving free kicks. He earlier played for Fenerbahce and was a favorite of Turkish fans.
