Elano Blumer (Galatasaray) (galatasaray.org)
Elano -  He was suffering in the freezing Ukranian winter and was depressed at Shakhtar Donetsk when Dunga called him up in 2006. It was the incentive he needed to pick up his career. Since then, he went to Manchester City and then to Galatasaray, clubs where he never played outstanting football, but where he says he never felt the sadness that disturbed him in Ukraine.

It was with the Selecao that Elano lived his best footballing moments in the last four years. Turned into Brazil's man for set-pieces, Elano proved his worth in this category and helped Dunga to establish set-pieces as one of Brazil's biggest weapons.
