I’m very attached to Real, more so than Barcelona.
I am tolerant. I want to understand other points of view.
Paolo Maldini. He was tough, tough, every time we played against each other. And I played against him many times. He’s a very good friend.
My life has always been a series of challenges and I’m psychologically-prepared but this is the biggest challenge of my life.
I couldn’t have got any fatter; I was running out of clothes.
It’d be best if Cristiano Ronaldo retired at Real Madrid and then worked at the club.
When I stopped playing, I gave up exercising and put on some weight.
Just a tiny bit of effort leaves me exhausted. Sometimes I just go up the stairs to my room, and I feel tired.
I am very ambitious. I want to enjoy this and then really go for it.
All good players are interesting.
I am shocked as to how much importance my weight garners in the world we live in. I don’t know why it is so important, to be honest.
I love Messi with the ball at his feet: he scores goals and does all the rest, too. But Cristiano’s numbers can’t be ignored. It’s a cruel comparison. Both of them deserve respect.
I’ve learned a lot in life, travelling, living abroad, just in the school of life.
I don’t want my fans to have the same disappointment as me when I was refused by some players to sign my notebook when I was young.
