When I came back the feeling was the same. But it’s that of being the happiest in the world, it’s duty accomplished. The mission is done.
“My cycle was over. I wanted to live a new challenge, try a different league and a different culture.
I haven’t won anything [in England]. I want to help there as I helped here. I’m going full of hope.
