"I want to thank Real Madrid’s President and José Luis Sánchez for everything you have done; to my three coaches: Pellegrini, Mourinho and Ancelotti who allowed me to grow. To my teammates, without them we wouldn’t have won anything. We’ve laughed and cried. We won ‘La Decima’. A dream. To all the employees of the club who have made our life much easier; and, of course, I’m very grateful to the fans, from day one you made ​​me feel at home and gave me all your love."
