          “If they have the best example in front of them If at least they don’t copy what you do. ”  Because I remember when I was 18, 19, 20 years old I was always looking at the best players like Van Nistelrooy, Ferdinand, Roy Keane and Giggs. This is why I’ve been successful and played for so long. Because I take care of my body, because of my heart, my brain because I meet these people and learn from them.” “I think the best advice… I’m not the type to give advice. I like to lead by example.” “I’m there every morning. I do the same thing I might be the first to arrive and the last to leave.

My generation, you will see players aged 36, 37, 38 playing at a high level. I don’t think a lot of the [new generation] are going to reach that level.”
