There are players who get high at a certain point in their careers and reach high level clubs. If we bring today it is a Brazilian who came to play at Inter Milan but ultimately did not quite succeed. Once hung the boots, You have to make a living as a coach in the humble Albanian league.

It is Zé Maria, which it became international with the 'canarinha’ with whom he played two Confederations Cups, He participated in the Olympic Games in Atlanta 1996 and even he won a Copa America. He spent most of his career in teams of Brazil (Portuguese, Flamengo, Palmeiras…), Italy (Parma, Perugia and Inter) and even he had a fleeting passage through the Levante in the Spanish league.

Once he left active football began a coaching career quite humble teams in Italy, Brazil and Romania until the KF Tirana of Albania, where he is currently head coach. His team, Group B leader of the second division Albanian, will seek the rise of category but must overcome the play off for promotion for it.

Definitely, a curious case of the Brazilian who is having to toughen in several countries and minor leagues to try to reach the top and football elite did achieve as a player. Of course, nobody is giving him anything.
