I’m the leading scorer in the cup, and that’s lovely, but don’t forget this is also a great moment for the whole squad, when the two things coincide you can’t ask for more.
Luckily, thanks to the way my parents taught me, I think I can handle the fame in the right manner.
Money is not everything. My ambition was football itself, not the money I’d make from it. If that brings me and my family a more comfortable lifestyle, then that’s fine. But I don’t spend my time between games and training sessions thinking about figures.
As far as our fans are concerned, I’m the only one who counts; along with my teammates, obviously.
Italy have plenty of high-quality players. Newcomers need time to get adjusted to the set-up and the system of play. I’m very young, and although I think I have shown good quality in my international games, I realise that there are plenty of others competing for places.
I even scored Monaco’s goal too. Please, put it down as an own goal for me!
