“I prefer to think of me in the present tense. The present is clear, I enjoy football. I’m still rather young and I’ve always liked challenges in my life – from Sporting, Manchester, Real and now Juventus. It was a dream, not a career. I couldn’t really think of winning so many titles. This new challenge will be as good as the others.”
