The former Fenerbahce playmaker Alex De Souza has posted a picture and caption on Instagram ahead of the Intercontinental derby this weekend.
Fenerbahce host Galatasaray at the Şükrü Saraçoğlu Stadium on Sunday at 17:00.
Alex posted a picture of himself and Arda Turan during a derby along with the caption, “I miss weeks like this. Fenerbahce – Galatasaray. Enjoy yourselves!”
The former Fenerbahçe captain joined the Istanbul club from Cruzeiro for €4 million in 2004.
Alex guided the Istanbul club to three Turkish Super League titles including a memorable 2006-07 championship trophy on the Yellow Canaries centenary year.
The 37-year-old playmaker spent eight years in Istanbul scoring 104 goals in 398 games for the Turkish giants. Alex became a cult hero at Fenerbahçe and the fans built a statue in his honour.
Alex also has 49 caps for the Seleção, helped win the 1998 Copa America and captained his nation to their 2004 Copa America title.
