When asked about his failed move to England, he said -“How close was I to going to Man Utd? Very close. It was amazing for me when Jose called me. It was difficult to say no to him.”
“I really, really wanted to join him and play for United. It was a dream of mine. But it didn’t happen. That was painful for me. But I don’t want to go into the details. I only found out myself the real reasons two years later.”– He added.
