Roberto Carlos still fuming over Real Madrid treatment

"It would please me to draw Real Madrid and, if I scored a goal, I would celebrate it without any problem, just like (Samuel) Eto'o, (Luis) Figo or any other," said the Brazilian.

Roberto Carlos is convinced he was forced out of Real after his error against Bayern Munich last season.

?After that mistake, I was left on the outer. They made me the scapegoat, but my error was not the cause of our elimination. We had 180 minutes to decide that tie."

The wing-back is still angry over the way he was treated by president Ramon Calderon and sports director Predrag Mijatovic.

"That the press criticises you is understandable, but when a director and a president blames a single player it is, at least, ugly, and for that reason I made the decision to leave, because when I needed the aid of some important people at the club, I only found support from my teammates."

Roberto Carlos also admitted he didn't see eye-to-eye with Raul while in Madrid.

"We didn't talk for a long time," he said. "We were never friends.

"My friends were the Brazilians and Sergio Ramos."
