Palmeiras 1994 - No.10 Rivaldo.


Believed too physically weak to succeed by youth coaches Rivaldo Vítor Borba Ferreira's story is truly amazing.
He joined Palmeiras in 1994, who were then reigning champions in Brazil and with Rivaldo they successfully defended their title. His two seasons at Palmeiras were amongst the most successful in his career, Rivaldo’s goal tally reaching 53 in 104 matches.

This extraordinary goal/match ratio earned him a move to Europe, when Deportivo La Coruna signed him which in turn heralded a glorious move to Barcelona.

Considered to be one of the best players of his generation, in 1999 Rivaldo was honoured as FIFA World Player of the Year, Ballon d'Or winner and European Footballer of the Year.
Between 1993 and 2003, Rivaldo played 74 matches and scored 34 goals for Brazil and was an integral part of the 2002 FIFA World Cup winning team.
