title in 2018, preceding encouraging them to win the

Copa Libertadores

unexpectedly since 1999 with a triumph over Santos a weekend ago. 

Addressing Palmeiras' official website, the former Brazil international talked about his choice to leave European football with Inter and get back to Brazil, asserting that it had been the correct choice for him. 

"After a successful career in Europe and being with a team like Inter, it was worth leaving to start from scratch again with a great club like Palmeiras," the defensive midfielder stated.

"It was one of the best decisions of my life. We still have more work to do but at the end of it all I'll look back and say it was worth it."
