‘I am so grateful to the club that they believed in me and all the captains. There are many players who wear that number. But luckily I got it and I am grateful to the club and the captains who offered it to me. For me there is no pressure. just motivation No one is like Leo, no one is like (Carles) Puyol or Xavi (Hernandez), no one will do what Leo does, I have to go my own way. I didn’t look much at the number of goals. Just about what I can do and what I can bring to the team. I hope to have a career like they have.’
