I believe I am more intelligent than the average person.

I don't follow politics; it doesn't interest me. So why should I vote?

I want to be the strongest player in the world and score a lot of goals. To do that, I have to improve in every area.

I would be ready to become a dad if I was with the right person. I'd like a boy, though. Because they're in charge.

It surprises me how much children like me, you know? If they look at me as an example, I have a big responsibility.

Many stories are invented about me - too many stories; almost everyone uses me, and I'd say about 0.01 percent of the gossip is true.
