Tite, the Brazilian coach, has mentioned Gilberto as one of the potential defenders who will be called up for the World Cup and this week, in Luz, for the match against Dynamo Kyiv, two elements of Tite’s crew, in the case of Mateus Bacci. and Fábio Mahseredjian, were there to see live performances for the side and also for David Neres.
When asked about this presence, the player spoke of a “dream”. “I followed and saw [as entrevistas]. I am very happy and thank you, I know you just mentioned it, but for me it is very important and I am very happy. I know how hard it is to get to that level. Of course this motivates me more and more, we made dreams, I will not stop believing in my dreams, I will always look for the best,” he told TNT Sports Brasil.
“I feel confident with those words, but we have to work with our feet on the ground, our head in place and the humility to get as far as possible,” he said.
Gilberto thanked him again for the comparison with Roberto Carlos: “She is a very important reference for me, as a full-back. Roberto Carlos was a great player and I know I have to eat a lot of rice and beans to be able to stand on his own two feet, but I always try to improve to reach the highest level possible to help Benfica.”
