“They said many things, but they’re not important because I have to prove nothing to anyone. I know what I feel and where I am ”

Thus, then stated: “As much as it is now well off, do not forget that it was not always so. So I think that one should never stop helping people in need ”
He stated that “if a person falls into drugs or alcohol is not the main culprit, because the cause of the problem is the lack of opportunities. It is so because he had no education and because they have missed many things. So my intention was always to work with the younger ones, to avoid getting to make those mistakes. ”
Then he was asked for his relationship with Diego Maradona technician who directed him in the last World Cup in South Africa.
“I had the opportunity to be with him and having many conversations, because I’m experiencing a lot of things happened when he was young. All I feel for him, told him in the face, and he to me ”
“The time we were together we talked a lot in the selection, we were very close, we shared many things. And although I am not very demonstrative, the truth is that he knows very well what I feel for him “
