“Leo and me shared the last twelve, thirteen or fourteen years of our lives, I’ve always had a cordial relationship with him, I never saw him as a rival. It’s the press that creates the rivalry. If you ask Leo, he’ll tell you the same thing. It’s always beautiful to play against him. Obviously people will talk about our rivalry when we meet, but for me it’s just a great privilege.”

“I don’t know. He’s a great player, and I get on well with him. We’ve worked together recently. But there’s a lot of talk about him for Madrid, Barcelona and Juve. It’s the press’ job because they need to sell, but I think he’ll stay in Paris. If not, he’ll go where he’s happy and where he can express his football a lot. I like to see him playing and regardless of where he is, taking care of himself and avoiding injuries. That’s what I want for him.”
