Who was your football hero growing up?
Ronaldo Nazario [the Brazilian Ronaldo] was my hero when I was younger. He was a role model for me, and such a fantastic player. I got his football jersey, which I still keep with me to this day.
What do you remember about going to watch your first football match?
I used to go to games at the Rayo Vallecano stadium with my siblings. It is the football team of my local neighbourhood in Madrid and I was lucky enough to get the chance to play for their professional team.
What boots did you wear when you were a kid?
When I was a kid the players started to wear colourful boots but my mother didn’t like it. She advised me to not wear those kind of boots and only allowed me to play with black ones. I wanted to wear the Adidas Copa Mundial – so comfortable!
