"

When Cristiano Ronaldo joined Juventus, my friends told me, ‘You’re competing with the best player in the national team and now they bring another best player to your club.’

But I see this as a privilege—we're talking about two phenomenal professionals here, one or two steps above all others, both football and mental wise—I get to study either of them every single day. Who wouldn’t want to work with the best?”

I’ve never seen a player like Lionel Messi.

At Udinese I'm responsible to score or assist, but for Argentina I only have to run, get the ball, give it to Messi. He'll take care of the rest.”

"

Lionel Messi said he misses me recently.

It’s true, we inspired each other in Spain, our competition as two rival club symbols pushed us to become even better footballers than we already were.

We are still fuelled by our own motivations of course, for me I always want to be perfect even if perfection doesn't exist, I may be 34 today but I want to learn more than ever, football or otherwise."
