‘When I was a child I had a simple but very crazy dream. No, it wasn’t the type of dream that you have when you are sleeping. This was one of those dreams that you want so much that it keeps you awake at night.
‘I wanted to become the best footballer in the world. I dedicated my life to my dream – in the gym, on the training pitch – doing everything necessary to make it possible. It’s so important to have a dream. It’s even more important to work hard to reach it.
‘I realised my dream and I hope you can realise yours too. Pursue them without hesitation. If I did it, you can do it too. Congratulations on qualifying for the elite round. Stay focused and keep your eyes on the next victory.
‘Good luck and enjoy these boots.
