My mother thinks I am the best. And I was raised to always believe what my mother tells me.

Some suggestions for you :

There would be no debate about who was the best footballer the world had ever seen - me or Pele. Everyone would say me.

At the moment there are some England players who are the stars of their club teams, but not for their country. It's difficult to explain.

I'll be too old to face a difficult championship as the one in America will surely be.

God makes me play well. That is why I always make the sign of a cross when I walk out on to the pitch. I feel I would be betraying him if I didn't.

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.

While the coach is entitled to celebrate the team's victories, there is a manner and a way of doing so without aggravating the opponent.

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

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

To see my country lose a football match is very hard for someone who has worn the shirt.

I am black or white, I'll never be grey in my life.

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

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

When I wear the national team shirt, its sole contact with my skin makes it stand on an end.

Things are neither clear nor clean in the world of football right now and many people recognise this reality.
