Brazil's Roberto Carlos on doping: 'I always defended a clean game'

Brazil's Giuliano and Diego Souza reflected on their preparations for the 2018 World Cup and believe the tournament can transform Russia.

SAO PAULO -- Former Brazilian left-back Roberto Carlos, who was part of the team that won the 2002 World Cup, denies accusations of doping made in a German documentary.

Broadcaster ARD/WDR aired a documentary on Saturday that alleges Roberto Carlos was a patient of a doctor who has been accused of helping athletes use banned performance-enhancing substances.

The network says Roberto Carlos' name appeared in a dossier that Brazilian anti-doping authorities gave to the Sao Paulo prosecutor's office.

In a statement, Carlos says he has "never used any artificial [substance] that would give me an advantage over my fellow players."

He said his lawyers were taking action to fight the allegations.

He added: "Throughout my career, I always defended a clean game."

Roberto Carlos played for Real Madrid and won three Champions League titles.
