My ancestors were fighters, something I have inherited.

If someone is too perfect they won't look good. Imperfection is important.

I don't need to be involved with a game watched by millions of people to be fulfilled.

When times are difficult, I tell myself, 'I'm just passing through.'

I don't know where my medals are.

I try to find different ways of expressing myself. Without that I will die.

I know that I have a face, a look, people aren't used to seeing. A presence.

I prefer to play and lose rather than win, because I know in advance I'm going to win.

I always wanted to play against the best.

Often there are players who have only football as a way of expressing themselves and never develop other interests. And when they no longer play football, they no longer do anything; they no longer exist, or rather they have the sensation of no longer existing.

I have a car but it's not important.

I want to look forward.

My best moment? I have a lot of good moments but the one I prefer is when I kicked the hooligan.

Sometimes in life one experiences an emotion which is so strong that it is difficult to think, or to reason.

I think it's better to be involved in one or two movies a year.

He who has regrets cannot look at himself in the mirror.

My father's parents were from Sardinia and my mother's from Barcelona.

Being French, to me, is first and foremost being a revolutionary.

I didn't want really to be involved in a normal soccer club.

We can be eaten by techniques and forget what we have inside of us.

I started beach football in Monte Carlo when I retired from football in 1997. I liked the game very much.

We all seem to be about aggression and greed. It's a massive pressure that affects us all.

I found leaving Manchester United very, very hard.

I'm just enjoying my life at the moment.

I apologize for nothing.

I don't want to be in Terminator. I don't want to go to Hollywood.

I observe the world and the people surrounding me.

The pressure people put on themselves and the rivalry between the teams is much more marked. And I think that's a good thing. As long as that rivalry remains within the spirit of competition, it con only spur everyone on.

I'm lucky to have the privilege of being able to choose what I want to do.

I always planned to retire when I was at the top and at Manchester United I have reached the pinnacle of my career.

I like to be fascinated by the people I photograph. Sometimes I don't admire them but I'm interested in them.

For me, I don't like it when there is too much interference in our lives. We're not children. It is our own life in our hands.

In England, your life is your life.

I stopped playing football because I'd done as much as I could. I needed something which was going to excite me as much as football had excited me.

I always knew I had to work hard.

Being on stage isn't so tough compared to the football pitch.

Football lost its excitement for me.

We won the European Championship last September and now the world title. That is some year for French beach soccer! Now comes the hard part. We have to keep improving and that's difficult because it's tough to do better than winning a world title.

I don't think we can be entirely happy seeing such misery around us.

What is the system? It revolves around the banks, the system is built on the power of the banks, so it can be destroyed through the banks.

I think I have a sense of mischief and that I can laugh at myself.

We knew that you don't get to be world champions without a struggle.

I see the world become so uniform. Everybody has to be the same. I like people who are different.

I don't care about the past.

I am searching for abstract ways of expressing reality, abstract forms that will enlighten my own mystery.

Some people need to stay at the top. They are afraid to re-start from zero because they fear the critics.

I live to feel myself in danger.

I don't want to go to Hollywood.

You can lose in cinema too if you don't put on a good performance.
