Every player would love to play a tournament like the World Cup at home.
England have always had individually strong players, and I am a huge fan of Stevie Gerrard, who has the heart of a lion and is the icon of the modern footballer with his ability to attack and defend so well.
I grew up with the Bible education, and my values come from there.
Even though I am playing against others, and it is important to get there and win, I believe that Jesus is much more important than all of that.
I'm not just about being an ambassador of Christ. I'm here also, talking with friends, being the same person that I always am.
I like the idea of playing with a bit more tactical freedom, either in a deeper role or supporting the strikers more often.
There are a lot of big players and a lot of big teams, but I don't know if I'll get the opportunity to play in the Premier League.
Neymar will never fail to have technique and creativity.
One day, I hope I can play in MLS.
I have been a big admirer of Coutinho, and he can be a very important player for Liverpool and Brazil.
In my time at Milan, the club played with a 4-3-1-2 formation, and I was the player behind the two strikers. At Real, I play behind three. There is a greater defensive obligation, but I try to work around the area.
When I talk to my colleagues from the national team, they always talk to me about Real Madrid.
Milan is my home, where I chose to go and where my heart really is.
At Madrid, pressure is normal.
Tite is doing a great job for the Brazilian national team.
It sounds like a cliche, but without a strong group, you win nothing in football.
I learned that it is faith that decides whether something will happen or not.
In a year without the World Cup, the national leagues and the Champions League have much more weight.
I do want to live my life in the right way and live my life close to God.
I broke my sixth vertebrae.
In my whole life, Jesus is in first place. That's why I put that inside my cleats, Jesus in first place, because that is how I think.
I am always in love with Milan. The relationship with the team, with the club, and with these fans is beautiful. It's weird for a Brazilian to have a relationship like that with an Italian club.
I have good memories of Real Madrid. Professionally, it was a difficult period, but my experience there was very good in all senses, as I grew a lot, learned many things, and lived with great champions.
Football is unpredictable.
I am not a great artist like Maradona was with regards to on-the-field matters.
My time at Real Madrid wasn't a failure. I played 120 matches, I scored 28 goals, and I played an average of 30 games a season. What's more, I won three trophies: La Liga, a Copa del Rey, and a Supercopa de Espana.
I like Seedorf. He is a good coach.
If it's good for me to go to the national team and play there - not just go there to give experience but to play and be useful - I think it's good.
I stayed in Milan for six years. I stayed in Madrid for four years. I played in Brazil for nine years, so I always think about the good projects.
What I can say is that Neymar is a very good player, amazing.
A World Cup without Argentina isn't good.
In Italy, the coaches are very attentive to the details. They really study things, and that is a big difference here. They look at your movement, your positioning. They study you and work out how to stop you.
Playing for Madrid is a great challenge.
I have my life. I have my values. And compared with much of society, especially football, that is radical.
The World Cup is a competition in which everything needs to work to your advantage. Players need to be fit, decisions have to go in your favour, and details such as a red card can cost a team dearly.
My family, and my belief in God and Jesus, are the things which determine my life.
It's not so easy to apply to today's society things that were written thousands of years ago. But that's exactly the job of a minister - to make the teaching of the Bible relevant.
I use a few phrases to let people know a little bit about who I am. One of them is I belong to Jesus, which is a phrase I always wear on a shirt during the most important moments of my professional career.
My best Champions League moment was when Milan won in 2007 against Liverpool. That was the biggest moment for me in the Champions League.
Every championship that Brazil participates, we have the responsibility to win - every time. So when we don't win, it's considered as a failure.
My feelings in regards to the national team are simple: If the manager thinks I can be of use, I will be ready for the call.
It's nice to play in America.
Coutinho is a humble guy.
Dani Alves is amazing.
I would say Neymar is my favourite young player. I love the way that he plays.
The best player I have ever played with? That's Ronaldo, il Fenomeno.
AC Milan will always be a great team.
People talk about the history of Manchester United or Liverpool, but look what Arsenal achieved with the team of Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira.
When things go well, everyone talks well of you and vice versa. Unfortunately, football is like that.
Often, players at clubs I have been at have asked me for prayers or advice. I prefer to show them things rather than to say things; with my actions, not my words.
