Now that I am at Everton I want to show that I am intact, and I think that when I have done things well, I have been at a good level. "

I also began to know the club, to which They work within and what they want, and I saw that it was good and I also want to win. Carlo was essential to be able to get there and he was good for me at Real Madrid and at Bayern. "
