Brazilian World Cup winner Kleberson is hoping to re-establish himself in the team at next month's Copa America.

The midfielder started all of Brazil's matches in the knockout stage of the 2002 World Cup but has lost his place in the last year following injuries and a frustrating season at English premier league Manchester United.

The world champions have rested several top players for the Copa America in Peru and Kleberson intends to grab his chance while he can.
"It's a good opportunity. I had some excellent moments in my first year in England but I was injured twice and that put me back both at my club and the national team. I hope to win back my place in the group.

"This first year was very difficult, the adaptation was complicated and the injuries were a problem.

"I'm gambling everything on next season. Now that I've been baptised in Europe, I'm dreaming of titles and making history."

Meanwhile from the Evening News:

Celtic have earned a small measure of revenge on Manchester United over the Liam Miller move by snatching young Canada star Jacob Lensky from under the nose of Sir Alex Ferguson.
Midfielder Miller signed a pre-contract agreement with the Old Trafford giants earlier this year after impressing for the Hoops in the Champions League.

But now the Parkhead side have beaten United to the signature of teenage Canadian Lensky, who will join the Scottish Premier League champions when he turns 16 in December, after a trial period at United was prevented by a hamstring injury to the player.

Lensky told the Vancouver Sun: "Although I've had opportunities to play with other teams, including Manchester United, Celtic emerged as my clear first choice.

"I loved my trial with Celtic and everything else about the club. I can't officially be signed to a contract until I turn 16, which is on December 16."
