“I loved him so much. It’s a “limit” that he has, because we all know that he has extraordinary qualities, a lot of talent. This is where he needs to improve and he is doing it. He has been working for a long time and, yes, he could have played earlier, because training is going very well, but he is very young and he will stand out. We're talking about a guy who has more goals than minutes played and that can only be a gift.
