It is always good to get out of your comfort zone. I am very happy with the decision I have made. ”

What advice could you give Mbappé to stay?

My winning spirit is what I can contribute to the group and if that can infect a teammate, the better ”.

What is left of the difficult 2020/2021 season?

Who are you more excited to play with: with Mbappé or with Neymar?

The admiration we feel with outsiders, we lack with ours and we miss it. It is sad, but it is reality. Not only have I suffered it, but also other players. When we have the cracks here we do not value them. We have to admire people more and envy less. "
