Sócrates Brasileiro Sampaio de Souza Vieira de Oliveira, the man that shaped my football game forever.
I owe him a lot and always spoke about his genius and credited him for my vision as a playmaker.
Sadly Carlo was right. I should have taken time out to meet the legend in person while in Brasil in 2002 and 2004. But was so focused on the business of football I thought after when I have time I would do such things.
Rest in peace “Socrates”.
