You know some people had their doubts when it was announced you were signing for Madrid…
That’s something you have to accept with this club. Madrid is the best club of the 20th century, recognised by FIFA, but some people dispute that. Only Madrid has 10 European Cups and some people dare to debate whether it’s the best club in the world…
Are you convinced by the steps you’ve taken in your career?
I played at Chivas, the best club in Mexico; I played at Manchester United, the best in England; and I’m going to play at Madrid, the best in the World. I can only think that the glass is half full.
Are you coming to put Benzema on the bench?
I don’t feel any pressure when people compare me with him. I know people will try and make it a rivalry between us. It happened with Rooney, Berbatov and Van Persie at United and it’s normal at the top level. There’s no pressure. I’ve always been competitive and it doesn’t affect me.
And if you fail?
At a club like Madrid there are no excuses, your performances put you in your place. If you have big dream you need to work hard and be at the level of the club. Being professional isn’t just a pretty phrase. You need to do it and show it, so you don’t let the people supporting you down. Starting with your family. I can’t let my parents or my grandparents down.
Are you really so excited?
To play for Real Madrid is the first miracle in my life.
That’s not just putting on an act to look good for the fans…?
People who know me, know that I think like this. I’m going to give blood, sweat and tears for this shirt. It’s clear that one phone call can change your life. That happened to me two weeks ago.
How do you see the debate over Cristiano and Messi? Who’s better?
Cristiano, without a doubt. You’d have to be mad not to think that. He’s the best. Messi is good, but he’s not as good.
