– I never hid the dream I have, and every year it gets more difficult because of age, but the dream is there to be dreamed and fulfilled. At the right time, in the right way. We don’t know anything about the future. If I look back, I would say that I was dying to go to Europe, it was my opportunity. It didn’t work out, but I’m living the greatest moment in the history of Palmeiras, winning absurd titles, and I’m happy as hell. People sometimes don’t understand the things that happen at the moment, but faith in God. Time passes and you understand that maybe it was not the moment – said Scarpa in a recent interview with GE.
