‘If I have his vision of the game, I’d be there… (he places his hand over his head) I’d be on a much higher level.
‘The guy takes the ball, does not even look and puts it right where he wants to just behind the defender. And behind, the guy will score.
‘I say to myself: “But how did he see that?” Sometimes, in the team, between us, we say to ourselves: “But why is he doing that?” And, in the end, the pass is magnificent.’
