“Inside we were all one, I never saw anything strange, I felt the support of those in the hierarchy, but there were colleagues who made a mistake in speaking or in giving statements about the naturalized and what hurt me the most is that they were players who were within the National Team, but they didn’t do it within the National Team, they did it outside and that hurt me, but that’s where the important ones appeared and made me understand many things and focused me on enjoying themselves ”.
