I managed to do the last 6 months at a very high level ”.

It came naturally. There is also this new desire to transmit. But neither should you speak in order to speak. And we must not take up too much space because there is the captain and the coach.

What I want is to win, and for there to be a solid project around me. It is the most important. I eat and live football and the sports project is very important. There is only one club that wins the Champions League each year, but you have to feel that you are leaving with a team that wants to win. We will discuss with the club and we will see what will happen. Anyway, I’ve always been happy here. I understand that everyone is waiting for my answer. We will do things in order ”.
