Today, if I have to dedicate this trophy to somebody, for sure I would give it to Patrick because he’s like my godfather in football. When I was going through my difficult moment, he was unbelievable. He was there for me as a brother, as a father. He was even at my house telling me ‘Manu, listen, football is a strange game, never give up. You don’t know what tomorrow brings.’
So after a couple of months I am here winning the cup with Real Madrid.
All my love goes to Patrick. He sent me a message saying ‘I’m happy for seeing you celebrating like a baby, enjoying life again.’"
Except I had more rage and less good humor.
