To see the ball, to run after it, makes me the happiest man in the world.

Some suggestions for you :

I'd give my life to be the national team coach.

You can say a lot of things about me, but you can never say I don't take risks.

If I could apologise and go back and change history I would do. But the goal is still a goal, Argentina became world champions and I was the best player in the world.

I have 23 top players and they are all ready to put on the jersey and work on the pitch and that makes you happy and then you have peace of mind.

Of course in the first matches you are more careful, perhaps more careful than you should be.

I like English football, always have. It's just that people go on about the World Cup in 1986 and then I'm seen as the real bad boy.

I certainly have an advantage over some because I can pass on so much from the World Cups I played in.

When you win, you don't get carried away. But if you go step by step, with confidence, you can go far.

If you don't want to play clean football then go up into the stands.

The problem is that they are all stars at Madrid. You need someone to carry the water to the well.

Many people agree with me that many things are not clear in football these days and it is not something people who watch football deserve. The situation will be the same while football is run by people who do not understand football.

Everybody in Argentina can remember 'the hand of God' in the England match in the 1986 World Cup. Now, in my country, the 'hand of God' has brought us an Argentinian pope.

I gave all I had. Now I want to enjoy my family.

All the people that criticised me should eat their words.
