"I was very lucky in my career to have some great coaches, but Rafa was different for me".
"He was a special man in that moment, and he changed my life in football when I was with him at Valencia. When we won La Liga and the UEFA Cup it was one of the best moments of my life. He showed me different things and he showed me football in a different way.
"Everyone knows about Rafa and the excellent team we had. For me it was a special moment in my career. Those moments change your life.
"Rafa and the players in that group showed me the mentality to try and be a winner all the time, and to realise the process is the most important thing to get to where you want to be. You need to understand to work every day to try and give the best. I learned that with Rafa at Valencia."
