My dream was to enjoy what I love (playing football) and when I was young, I wanted to be a professional footballer, to do what I love in life as a career. '
"Thank God, I have achieved everything in my football career. Thanks to all my teammates for giving me such a nice gift. Thanks also to Conmable. We are having a very special and wonderful moment, receiving lots of love. It was the time when a Latin American country won the World Cup. '
