The words of the former Barcelona and Inter: "I was not quiet. When I was 16 and I was in the cantera nobody respected me. My comrades, even, I do not even greeted. They treated me like I was the last to arrive, despite the many goals I marked it. The only people who have always believed in me and were Capello Galbiati, who gave me the opportunity to train in the first team. I will thank them both for ever. I threw the blood for them, but I was hungry for fame, money, goals. .. I wanted to be somebody. I never wanted to go away from Madrid, but in the company I wanted to. I'll never understand the real reason. I have always done well, the only explanation is that perhaps the black men in that clubs were not loved. "
