“I don’t think much about the future. As you know, I always live in the moment. It’s hard to leave the club of your life after 16 years with lots of joy, suffering, training, pain, giving everything for the club. But that’s not a complaint . I would do it again. I would play with pain, train with pain. Just putting on this shirt is something very beautiful, very strong. The future doesn’t scare me. What I had to do, I did. History is written. I’m very happy with myself even,” he began by saying.
