Quotes

“I think sometimes the best training is to rest.”

“In football, I don’t have a lot of friends. The people who I really trust, there are not many… Most of the time, I’m alone.”

“People have to understand one thing: at the age of 18, I arrived at a dream club like Manchester United. It was a dream come true. But, even at that moment, I was thinking about playing in England for some years and then going to play in Spain. Even at that time I was thinking that way, and I always gave 100% everything.”

“I still learn, but I think it’s the best thing in life to have a kid.”

“I know I’m a good professional, I know that no one’s harder on me than myself and that’s never going to change, under any circumstances.”

“We cannot live being obsessed with what other people think about us. It’s impossible to live like that. Not even God managed to please the entire world.”

“I don’t like being alone.”

“I don’t have to show anything to anyone. There is nothing to prove.”

“Many people look at me and think they know me but they don’t at all. This is the real me. I am a humble person, a feeling person. A person who cares about others, who wants to help others.”

“My father always taught me that when you help other people, then God will give you double. And that’s what has really happened to me. When I have helped other people who are in need, God has helped me more.”
