Can you imagine moving to the Premier League?
No, no not yet. To be honest I’ve never thought about living in England. I do watch the Premier League a little bit, but then again I don’t like to watch too much football.
I like to follow Coutinho and Gabriel Jesus just to see how they’re doing but I’ve never touched the subject of moving to the Premier League with them.
I’ve played in some grounds in England, I believe almost all of those from the big teams – it’s hard to pick one that I liked the most.
Do you ever ask Coutinho or Gabriel Jesus what the Premier League is like?
Of course I’ve asked how they’re doing, if they were good and happy, and they’ve answered me.
But I’ve never asked about going there.
Have they asked you to come and join them?
They never told me to come there but they do tell me they like living there. All the players who are there like to be in England.
Could you and Messi handle a cold night in Stoke?
Of course Messi could handle a cold Tuesday night in Stoke. He’d be drinking tea and relaxing beforehand.
Me? I’d probably be the same.
Who is your favourite player to watch in world football at the moment?
My favourite player to watch? It’s got to be Messi.
But he’s not the only one. There’s also Luis Suarez of course and Lucas Lima. He’s a very skilful playmaker at my old club Santos and also a great friend of mine.
Who’s the most skilful player you’ve played with?
Again it’s Lionel Messi. But after that it’s Gabriel Jesus – he’s incredibly skilful. I’d also have to pick Robinho, who is my idol, and Ganso at Sevilla.
And I can’t forget Ronaldinho. If there was one Brazilian I’d bring back from retirement to play for Barcelona it would be him.
