I’m happy because I won’t have to train again, or travel or sit in team hotels.
I’m genuine and people can believe what I say.
In my private life I do what I like. The night is my friend. If I don’t go out, I don’t score.
When I sleep to much I don’t score. That’s the reason I like to go out a lot.
God created me to delight people with my goals.
I pay my own bills. I feel my own pain.
The coach should keep out of the way… He is an important figure, of course, but is more likely to lose a match than win it. Matches are won by players.
I’ll never forget my friends and where I came from.
Strikers are egotists, selfish. We have to be.
I defend the Brazilian people.
If someone criticizes me, I strike back.
I have my way of doing things.
The tendency of everyone is to evolve.
When things are really good, really easy it’s not cool for me.
Officially I’m not playing any more. I’ve stopped. My time is up. Everything has been a lot of fun.
When I was born, the man in the sky pointed to me and said, ‘That’s the guy.’
I’m inspired by challenges. My life was always like this.
I like to say it like it is.
I am not happy to play for Barcelona, but Barcelona should be happy that I play there.
I’m like any Brazilian: I like to go out and enjoy myself.
