– What would you change about your career?

– When I was young, wasn’t ready to huge pressure and glory. Sometimes I ran too far ahead – if not played, then became impatient, couldn’t wait for its release.

My path is woven from the UPS and downs. I flew very high at the start of a career, and then dived sharply. I made a lot of mistakes, but it’s my life and I have no regrets.

– Who do you think will win Euro?

– Germany. Maybe England or Spain. Then comes Italy, which always show good football on the background of the problems, so you can expect it in the semifinals.

– Italy has problems Mario Balotelli, can you give him advice?

– I’m surprised how you can waste such a great talent. He should ask this question to yourself, think about how his lifestyle is affecting football.

The revival takes place step by step. He is still young. When I was in hull, I had a much worse situation. Mario is now at Milan – great club, although it is not the revolutionary team of Arrigo Sacchi. That was one of my favorite teams in football history.

– Do you follow Serie A?

– Yes, but a decision on his future has not yet adopted.

– Do you like the style of play Atletico and Diego Simeone?

– Atletico deserves respect, but a football is not to my liking. It does not take root for long, because the essence of the sport is different. I belong to the admirers of Guardiola, I like the football showcased by his team.

– Karim Benzema is associated with generation of Muslim immigrants who live in suspense and fear. You, too, to rank as such?

– I believe that religion is a private matter. This should be tolerant and should respect all religions. Any dispute I leave to the politicians.
