1. I prefer to win titles with the team ahead of individual awards or scoring more goals than anyone else. I'm more worried about being a good person than being the best football player in the world. When all this is over, what are you left with? When I retire, I hope I am remembered for being a decent guy. 2. Even if I played for a million years, I'd never come close to Maradona. Not that I'd want to anyway. He's the greatest there's ever been. 3. There's nothing more satisfying than seeing a happy and smiling child. I always help in any way I can, even if it's just by signing an autograph. A child's smile is worth more than all the money in the world. 4. In football as in watchmaking, talent and elegance mean nothing without rigour and precision. 5. I have many years to get better and better, and that has to be my ambition. The day you think there is no improvements to be made is a sad one for any player. 6. Today I am the happiest man in the world, my son was born and thanks to God for this gift. 7. I've never stopped being Argentine, and I've never wanted to. I feel very proud of being Argentine, even though I left there. I've been clear about this since I was very young, and I never wanted to change. Barcelona is my home because both the club and the people here have given me everything, but I won't stop being Argentine. 8. I want to concentrate on winning things with Barcelona and Argentina. Then if people want to say nice things about me when I have retired, great. Right now, I need to concentrate on being part of a team - not just on me. 9. Every year I try to grow as a player and not get stuck in a rut. I try to improve my game in every way possible. But that trait is not something I've worked on, it's part of me. 10. 11. 12. It seems like people want to blame me for everything. Whenever any issue arises, I'm said to have been involved even if I've had nothing to do with it. That's why I always focus on what I know, which is playing football, and try to be very careful with what I say because people always try and twist things. 13. The last time I felt pressure, was as a footballer with Newell's Old Boys when I was eight years old. From then, I come on to enjoy myself. 14. I never think about the play or visualize anything. I do what comes to me at that moment. Instinct. It has always been that way.
