No! That's obviously isn't the car a multi-millionaire footballer drives; in fact this old broken down car belonged to his grandfather Pedro, who used to drive the burgeoning footballer to training and local matches back in the day when youngster had nothing in his pockets! The orange motorcar is a sentimental piece for the Brazilian; so much so he's got it tattooed on his skin! (Image: Instagram)

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, he graduated from the youth academy of Fluminense FC before going on to feature for the first-team briefly; he won the Campeonato Carioca in his only season at the club and was selected in the 2006 Brasileiro Team of the Season as a teenager. In 2007, his move to Real Madrid was dubbed as the “second-coming” of Roberto Carlos; On 7 January 2007, the defender made his debut for the Los Blancos in a 2-0 defeat against Deportivo La Coruña. After enduring a difficult start, error prone start which cost his team on several occasions, the Brazilian slowly found his feet and was a regular fixture in Madrid’s defensive setup; although never a resolute defender he offered a unique blend of offence from the flanks that would mesh perfectly with Madrid’s philosophy of breathtaking attacking football. During a storyboard career spanning over a decade in the iconic white shirt of Real Madrid, El Loco has featured in 489 competitive fixtures, scoring 36 and assisting a ridiculous 91 goals. His partnership on the left flank with Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo supplied much of the firepower that saw Real Madrid enjoy their most successful period since the mid-fifties, as the club were crowned European Champions on 4 occasions between 2013-2018, that included an unprecedented hat-trick of UEFA Champions League titles in the modern era. On the international stage the left-back has been capped for Brazil on more than 50 occasions, featuring in the Olympics, Copa America and the FIFA World Cup on several editions.
