Brazil's veteran defender Roberto Carlos leaves Turkey

Brazil's veteran defender Roberto Carlos left Turkey on Saturday after parting ways with Fenerbahce soccer team.

"I am feeling two things at the same time today. I am sorry for leaving Fenerbahce and I am very happy that I will continue playing soccer in my own country. A new era starts for me," Carlos said before his departure from Istanbul's Ataturk Airport.

Carlos played his last game with Fenerbahce on Thursday night, helping his team to win a 1-0 victory over Moldova's Sheriff in UEFA Europa League Group (H) match in Istanbul.

Team mates gave Carlos a goodbye shower after the match as Fenerbahce fans chanted "I love you Carlos," giving him a standing ovation.

Carlos, 36, signed for Fenerbahce from Real Madrid in 2007. He recently revealed that he penned a two-year deal with Corinthians of Sao Paulo.

Carlos scored 10 goals in 101 matches he played for Fenerbahce.
