“I work for that, but if I do not win, it’s not the end of the world.
“The numbers do not lie, but do not think that I’m less happy if I do not win.
“I have fantastic friends and I have a family, I play in one of the best clubs, do you think I’ll go home and cry?
“I am disappointed but life goes on and I will still work hard.
“Congratulations to Modric, he deserves it, but next year we will see each other again and I will do everything to be still there.”
