Cafu played a couple of years in Brazil and then moved to "Roma", where he became one of the top stars of world soccer.

At club level, Cafu spent most of his career in Italy. First, he played for "Roma" for 6 years, and then, he played for "AC Milan" for another 5 years. But many people have already forgotten that he started his European career in a modest "Zaragoza". The defender joined the Spanish club in 1994. He was 24 by that time.
However, not everything went smoothly for Cafu in Spain. He played quite rarely, not always feeling himself on the field confidently. It was clear that the player still lacked experience. Despite this, the results of many football matches for his team were not too bad. So, it was in the season 1994/1995 that "Zaragoza" won the Cup Winners' Cup. It is one of the major achievements in the history of the club.
Despite this, after just one season in the team, Cafu left the ranks. The footballer returned to his native Brazil. He played a total of 16 games for the Spanish club in La Liga.

Why Cafu could not realize his potential in "Zaragoza"?
The defender was not ready to move to a new championship and country. Despite the fact that he was already 24 years old, he did not feel the best outside Brazil.

  • Psychological problems. The footballer felt pressure from the fans and the media. This made him uncomfortable, making him unable to show his full potential.
  • Lack of confidence from the coaching staff. This also made the player realize that he did not always meet the demands of the team.
  • Difficulties with adapting to life in a new country. This applies to both the language and culture.
