As for the 2002 selection, Fred was impressed with the talent of Luiz Felipe Scolari’s side, who beat Germany 2-0 in the final in Yokohama.
“Yes, of course,” Fred replied, when asked if they were his heroes. “I remember everyone so well. Today I’m working with Gilberto Silva. He’s my agent and a guy who won the World Cup, so I talk to him a lot to find out, because if you win the World Cup, you know that.”
“So I talk to him a lot, but I remember, of course, Ronaldo scored in the final. I remember that. Ronaldinho, Rivaldo, there were a lot of players like that, Roberto Carlos, Cafu. So I I have a lot of heroes from this World Cup”.
