I want to fulfil my contract here but, in the future, only God knows. I will not say I am not happy here at Real Madrid.

    Old golfers don't win (it's not an absolute, it's a general rule). Why? The older golfer can hit the ball as far as the young one. He chips and putts equally well. And will probably have a better knowledge of the course. So why does he take the extra stroke that denies him victory? Experience.

Knowledge makes us play safe. The secret is to stay childish.
