“But as I told you before, the fans for me always will be in my side, will be always in my heart. I see during the days when I go to the streets, the love, the passion, that people have for me, the respect.”
“I hope that they never forget the things that I will continue to do it. Not only in the past, but in the present too.”
“Manchester will be always in my side, the fans will be always in my side; doesn’t matter what’s going to happen. And I appreciate the love that they send for me all the time. Even when I’m done play.”
