"Football is a great love because I was born into a family of players and therefore born into football. I'm fortunate to have a style of play that a lot of people like. It's a privilege to be able to do what I like best and in my own way, but I'm fortunate that people like it, and that motivates me even more."
"I have never imagined doing anything other than football, but now, thinking about it coldly, if I hadn't been a footballer, I would have been a musician."

"I had the chance to play for a lot of different teams in the Premier League, but I think all the choices I made were the right ones. I could name a lot - with Gremio, PSG, Barcelona, Milan, Flemengo Mineiro. I was lucky enough to score a few goals, and they were all beautiful."
