At the beginning, you are 20 and you can just imagine... don't get me wrong, but having money. Then you realize that it's not only about you and what you are doing but that you have to give back.
People always talk about Ronaldinho and everything but I didn't see him today - I saw Henrik Larsson. Two times he came on - he changed the game, that is what killed the game - sometimes you talk about Ronaldinho and [Samuel] Eto'o and people like that. You need to talk about the proper footballer who made the difference and that was Henrik Larsson tonight.
I can't understand why [Paul] Scholes has never won the player of the year award. He should have won it long ago. Maybe it's because he doesn't seek the limelight like some of the other 'stars'.
