Why does everyone love the Champions League? It's because it's exclusive. Even if you win it, you only play 13 games in that competition in a season.
If you are lucky, you go to a team like Porto to mature. And if things don't go well for you, others take your place.
Every time you win a cup, it's special, but it's a dream come true when it happens at a club where you started in the youth set-up, surrounded by friends who formed an incredible generation of players.
My dream is to get the young people off the streets, to make it possible for them to play football in the stadium instead.
I played over 130 matches, including four finals, so there have been many great moments.
Who doesn't want to work in the Premier League?
The DNA of AC Milan is something I have inside me.
I have the quality and the experience and can give that little bit extra to the squad.
To make a difference within the football environment means to make a difference in the world.
Madrid is a club with very high demands.
Football is part of my life, but it is not all of my life.
I would love to play in the Premier League; which player wouldn't? I am happy at AC Milan, but never say never.
Managers lose more than they win until they get to the big 10 clubs; then, they start winning a bit more than they lose.
I'm going to stop playing football after 22 years.
For me, winning isn't just about lifting the cup, the trophy - it's about giving your maximum, on and off the pitch.
As a player, I've always been interested in understanding the coaches' minds, in seeing how they made a group function.
There's no guarantee of winning, even if you are the best players and the best team.
Of course African teams are underachieving when you think of what their potential is.
I think about Milan from morning to night, and there is certainly no lack of effort and desire on my part.
What I strive for is that everywhere I go, I leave a positive impact.
Bolatelli is an exciting player, but his stupid attitude sometimes attracts attention from the crowd - nothing more, nothing less.
I wish I could hug all the fans one by one.
Coaching is not easy.
I think that you cannot have everything in life, and sometimes you just - destiny wants you to take another path.
I had a great time with Botafogo, and I am sure they will acquit themselves very well in the Libertadores.
Companies and football teams have become successful precisely because of how diverse they are.
You cannot leave the pressure and responsibility on young people in general. Young people must enter a safe and protected environment to be able to pass and fail so, little by little, they can adapt.
I like to take on challenges.
Everyone dreams of winning a European Cup final, and I was lucky to do it at just 19.
Good, young players don't compete in China or in Asia.
When you play against Barcelona and other great teams in the world, you can lose. It happens.
I am aware of my own position and my responsibilities to youngsters watching us. You are a role model.
I'm on a mission partly to make a difference in the world for the better, starting with the kids. They are the future.
I believe in a European League. I would like to see more quality in the game, and fewer games mean more quality.
The secret in life is to make every obstacle into an opportunity.
The most important thing for me is to value the players and try to improve them individually in order to improve the team.
We need to educate young people, give them the possibility to understand that the diversity is positive, to feel and experience it, so that they can then join forces in promoting more diverse world.
When the results start to come your way, the confidence rises, and we start to play better.
Rijkaard was my idol, but we have different qualities, even if at the beginning we played in the same position.
When we're playing, I really shape my body to receive the ball - even before it gets to me.
Every player can still grow - there is no limit to that. Even when I was 38, I improved myself in certain things, and that is what I will always do with my players to help them get the best out of themselves.
Great moments of entertainment, great football, unforgettable evenings. I think that's what it's all about: experience, emotions, and the special touch that the Champions League brings on and off the field.
I've been playing football for 23 years and with more than 30 nationalities; that has been a pleasure.
Football is not just what you do on the field.
Unfortunately, results are the only thing that some people look at, but there is more to defining success than just stats.
People don't come to the stadiums for every match because if there is a game every three days, it is difficult. You need to make games more exclusive and make them more special.
You can not always think about winning everything and forever.
The best players want to play for the best clubs in Europe and appear in top competitions like the Champions League.
If a club has the cups it has, you have to think that Real Madrid is always capable of reaching the final and winning it.
You have to want to improve all the time.
