“Now my intention is to finish it here, whether in Europe, the United States or anywhere else. If it can be in England it would be perfect.

“A football is not a machine, he has his good and bad days. What happens is that sometimes the fans don’t accept the bad guys.

“What I see in Brazil is sometimes inhuman pressure, which leads to violence, threatening the family, the children…”
