I like playing in Italy. It was a challenge I wanted since very early in my career.
I knew when I started playing professionally that being an idol means catering for fans. Without them, there's no game. I don't mind signing autographs, but what I really want to give fans are lots of goals.
I have been poor and money doesn't make any importance to me. I won't let all the money and glory go to my head. Fame came so quickly and early. It is a pressure to maintain it. Well, I've get used to it. I enjoy the applauding and appreciation of my fans.
I suppose it's natural that people talk about the coincidences with Pele's career. But before everyone gets carried away let's see if I have anything like the talent, shall we ?
I don't consider myself as the best player in the world. I'm not obsessed with individual titles. I'm much more interested in being part of a team which wins trophies.
I am happy where I am, I have a long way to travel for Barcelona and for Brazil. I want to win the Spanish title and the World Cup, and I think both are possible.
I am going to keep on training and am looking forward to being back.
Goals are always in demand. There will always be a market for a striker who is fast, scores goals regularly and is strong. I've scored more than 100 goals and people know what they are buying.
Everyone tells me that the Italian championship is the toughest in the world, but I'm not afraid. In my career, I've always scored goals, wherever I've been.
Every time I went away I was deceiving my mum. I'd tell her I was going to school but I'd be out on the street playing football. I always had a ball on my feet.
