“The other day, my father told me something, which has been in my head and I think is true.

We can face a different team, but Barcelona will always be the same. And we can do it. We’ve done it once and we can do it a second time.

We have to give the maximum in everything. If everything goes well, there’ll be another comeback.

I believe in the team and our potential. It’s all lost as it stands, so we have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

We have to enter the field and do our work. It’ll be very difficult, especially as there’s a big deficit.

Juve are a great team, one that’s very well-structured, so it’ll be difficult to turn the tie around. We‘ll have to run twice as much.

It’s the same situation as against PSG, we have a one-percent chance of going through and the remaining 99% consists of running and having faith. God willing, the goals will come.”

When I was at Stuttgart, I was told than one day I’ll have a beautiful love story with a club. When I signed for Real Madrid, I thought I reached the top of the world. Then, all of a sudden, something went wrong. The Madrid fan whistled me even when I played well, they didn’t respect the work I did. I played well, seriously, but someone higher up wanted me gone. When Juve contacted me I accepted immediately even though there were other clubs interested in me according to my agent. Juve showed me what it’s like to be a footballer. Thanks to Allegri I returned to my levels in many simple ways, and the public, unlike those in Madrid, are educated and I appreciate this. Today, when I speak with my German friends and they ask me about the peak of my career, I show them the Juve shirt. This is the team I chose as my love story, the best team I know, the team that wins with class… That is Juventus.
