I learnt that it is faith that decides whether something will happen or not.
If things happen it’s because God has prepared me. God has great things for us. If it’s God’s will that I be there, there I will be.
It is not my place to make judgments about the behavior of any other footballer. Cars and women, things like that, have never been important to me. My family, and my belief in God and Jesus are the things which determine my life. I do want to live my life in the right way, and live my life close to God.
I thank God for all the victories and conquests I’ve had this year as a player and I bring to the altar two prizes. This is first my son who is about to be born. The other is my trophy from Fifa, which I want to dedicate to God.
But I have seen il Fenomeno do things that nobody else has ever done.
The World Cup was a huge frustration because I had prepared really hard for it. But in the World Cup there is no formula, no recipe for success.
