"I have never thought of leaving Milan but in football it’s normal that other clubs make offers. Leonardo told me about PSG’s project. Ancelotti also called me and told me that their objective is to become one of the biggest clubs in Europe. Everything that the media reported about the PSG affair is true." "I have a very close relationship with Ibra, Cassano, Robinho, Pato and Yepes. They advised me to stay at Milan. Galliani also called me, and I thank for the great faith that he has in me. I’ve learned a lot from Ancelotti, Leo and now Allegri. I’ve always said that I want to stay at Milan. Even my family wants to stay as they feel happy in the city of Milano." "The Italian league is one of the best in the world. I’m sure about that. The teams to beat next season are obviously Juve and our fierce rivals Inter. Similarly Lazio, Udinese and Roma always create problems for us. I believe a lot in Milan’s strength for the upcoming season. We have only had a few changes in the squad and We’re still a tight group that works well together." "It was unpleasant that Pirlo left and won the Scudetto with Juventus. In any case, we practically won the Scudetto without Pirlo but now we have to endure the teasing from the Juventini." "It’s a privilege to be compared to Maldini and Baresi, the two symbols of AC Milan. Maldini was a point of reference for me even though he didn’t know that. I followed him from the stands. Maldini told me that with the qualities that I have, I would become one of the best players at Milan, if I also learned Italian." "I have played in the Milan VS Inter derby, but it’s different. It’s not the same thing as Flamengo Vs Fluminense. I’ve never seen anything like the Flamengo VS Fluminense derby. It’s a totally different match from others." "People on the street in Brazil tell me that if Brazil don’t win the Olympics this time, then they will never win it. We have to win the Olympics in order to be even better and stronger for the 2014 World Cup. I want to end the season in a beautiful manner by winning the Olympics and then beginning the new season with Milan." "In the last 4 friendly matches, we’ve shown that we’re in a good shape, despite the defeats vs. Mexico and Argentina. I was there in the Olympics in 2008. I wasn’t a starter then but I remember the match we lost against Argentina. They were making fun of us from the bench. Now we will do everything we can to turn the tables. It’s a privilege to be Brazil’s captain and it’s also a very big responsibility."
