Champions League winner looks totally unrecognisable 24 years on from lifting cup after ripped body transformation | The Sun

THIS former Bayern Munich and Real Madrid ace looks amazing for 48-years-old.

Back in 1998, the ex-Brazilian international was a Champions League winner with the Spanish giants.

During his illustrious playing days, he won two Copa Americas and finished runner up at the 1998 World Cup.

The versatile left-back-turned midfielder made 85 Brazil appearances and scored six times for his country.

He also lifted one LaLiga and the Champions League with Real Madrid and claimed four Bundesliga titles in six years at Bayern Munich spread over two stints in Germany.

But can you guess who it is?

It is, of course, ex-midfielder Ze Roberto who enjoyed a stellar career as a player.

However, he never looked this buff and has clearly been working out religiously since retiring from the game in 2017.

He has since stunned fans on social media, showing off his hench body transformation akin to a bodybuilder.

The Samba star uploaded an Instagram video of himself during a training session in the park during the coronavirus lockdown.

Now a personal trainer, he gave an insight into how he was able to outlast so many of his former team-mates.

He told local media in the past: "I have no vices. I don’t drink alcoholic beverages, I don’t smoke, I eat very well, I sleep well.

"I have my family, which is my greatest security. I think those are important factors to reach the age I reached and still continue playing at a high level."

And back in 2020 he even claimed he has a better physique than the ripped Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo.

He told TyC Sports: "Today I would say that I have a better physique, because I played until I was 43-years-old.

"If he does [play until then], I will say it is him."

Although with Ronaldo revealing he plans to keep playing into his 40s Ze Roberto may well be forced into making the admission.
