The day of my debut with my first team and the final of the Champions League 2009
Looking back to the first time you played in the first team. how did you feel?
It was lovely, I only have fond memories, to be with Ronaldinho, Deco, Samu… It was amazing. I still remember how Ronalinho wanted me next to him. There was space available between him and motta … but I had to wait for official approval from the club before I could move. It’s not just that you can go wherever you wish…

A footballer:

What do you say to those who compare you to Diego?:
Those who do never saw him play…

What was it like to be with him in La noche del 10?:
OH, incredible… that guy is unique. We were backstage with my dad, my cousin and my uncle talking about the autographs and photographs we were going to ask him for. Suddenly, Diego opened the door and he came in. We were petrified. He left without us asking for anything… the camera didn’t even leave the case…
