“We cannot love everyone and be loved by everyone. That would be perfection and nothing in this world is perfect.”

“Sacrifice? I don’t know what that means.”

“I don’t live for people, what they think, to tell me I’m cool, good, the best, perfect. Everyone has an opinion. And I respect that.”

“When you lose someone you love, you don’t think like that. And that’s why I say I enjoy life: because it goes by so fast.

“When I say I want to be a legend, some people say it’s pretentious. That’s a challenge for me. My wish, a dream. I’m not saying I’ll get there, but I want to.”

“I just want to play, whether it’s on the right or the left. I give 100 percent every time.”

“When I was young, I always looked up to Zidane, Messi, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo.”

“They teach you certain things, but football is instinct sometimes. You just get the ball, and sometimes you outrun three players and pass; Other times, you can shoot from a distance. It’s just instinct. If you feel something, do it. I am free to do that.”

“I’m a person who says what he thinks.”

“Creativity is a big part of my game as a player. It helps open doors that others may not see.”

“I wasn’t very interested in girls. Just football. I have always enjoyed football. There was a five-a-side next to the flat and I used to play there all the time. It was all about football. I wanted to be a professional. That was my goal. I didn’t want to be anything other than a footballer.”

His promising talent as a young footballer attracted Europe’s biggest clubs as a teenager.
