Last season was a failure, we know this. We won nothing, zero, it was a terrible experience.

But the silver lining is that it's given us one thing back—hunger. I have my head held high. I'm feeling the passion to win all over again like when I was a young kid.”

The way Rodrygo Goes grabbed the ball and kissed it after his hat-trick against Galatasaray—out of passion and not to pose for the camera—struck a chord with me. I also noticed he makes it a point to put thanking his teammates first when celebrating goals.

His parents deserve a big hug for the kid's fantastic upbringing.
