End of career as a player and beginning as a coach
After terminating with Corinthians due to the consequences of the early elimination in Libertadores, Roberto Carlos agreed with Anzhi, from Russia, in February 2011 with a big salary and arriving as captain.
Since the first games with the Russian team's shirt, the player was suffering from episodes of racism, until in June, with Anzhi winning by 3x0 an opponent fan threw a banana near Roberto, who showed it to the referee, threw the armband of captain on the ground and withdrew from the field.
The next day Roberto Carlos gave a strong interview, confessing that he no longer wants to act in that club, “I am deeply upset. I have no desire to play again. I am outraged by the disgusting behavior of the fan who, with his action, not only insulted me, but also everyone on the pitch and all Russian football. Such acts should not be tolerated in civilized countries. I left because I felt disappointed, I no longer had the desire to stay in the game. I would do the same if there was another scoreboard. It is already the second similar case in a short period of time that I play in Russia. It also hurts me because most people in the country are welcoming and benevolent towards players, including foreigners. Unfortunately, there are also those idiots. I hope that the Russian Federation, UEFA and FIFA will have the appropriate reaction to this unpleasant incident. Such things must not be tolerated in civilized countries. ”
The board managed to convince the player to stay at the club to fulfill the contract until next season, when something very curious happened. Anzhi had just fired his second coach during the championship and with 6 rounds left, he left Roberto Carlos as an interim coach for one game, with the same acting in the match.
In August 2012 after another season just as a player at the Russian club, Roberto Carlos announces his retirement to become football director at Anzhi himself, remaining in office until May 2013.
Roberto Carlos accepted a proposal to become coach of Sivasspor in Turkey in the 2013/2014 season. The Brazilian did well in the first season as a coach, taking the team to 5th place in the Turkish championship and winning the award for best coach in the country. However, after a very weak start to the 2014/2015 season, the former full-back left Sivasspor's technical command, with the team in the penultimate position in the national championship.
Not a month after Sivasspor left, the coach was announced by another Turkish club, Akhisar Belediyespor, where he stayed for 4 months ending the 2014/2015 season.
Roberto Carlos announced his trip to Al-Arabi from Qatar, but did not coach the team in any match, and a month later he was announcing his trip to Delhi Dynamos from India.
The Brazilian starts as a coach but is also registered as a player, and makes his return to the pitch on October 4, 2015, exactly against the team coached by former player Zico. The Delhi Dynamos is defeated, but the game serves to kill the longing to see Roberto Carlos on the field, who still almost scored a foul goal in extra time.
The coach leaves the Indian team after just 18 games in charge and heads to Madrid to settle with Real Madrid. In the club that has acted most in his career, Roberto Carlos assumes the role of coordinator of the grassroots categories and ambassador of the club, focusing on Asia, a continent that Roberto Carlos had remained for 6 years.
