Cicinho was considered one of the greatest promises of Brazilian soccer. This caused Real Madrid to notice him and even ended up signing him in 2006. However, the former South American player did not perform as expected with the Merengues.

And it is that the former defender revealed that he had alcoholism problems during his time with the Madrid team, to the point of arriving drunk at training. He also explained how he hid it.

"If you ask me if I've ever gone to training drunk with Real Madrid, I did. I drank coffee to take my breath away and showered myself with perfume. In my profession, as a professional footballer, it was easy. I didn't need money to get a drink, people gave me happiness in restaurants", he said in an interview with EPTV.

The problem was very big 

"When I was 13 years old, it was when I tried alcohol for the first time, and I never stopped. I lived in the countryside and on weekends we met with friends and went out to the squares, discos. I asked adults to go to shop and drink behind my parents and the police," he said.

The former Brazilian player ended by confessing that he constantly apologizes to his son because he experienced this situation when he was a child.
