Thank heaven This no longer exists and therefore the game is more beautiful", remembered the German.

We received this message, but the fault was ours by not to impose us to this and say 'want to more'. We were conformistas and went an error", underlined the exmediocampista.

On his traspaso to the Madrid, the Teutonic explained that "it was something unforeseen. I already had it done with the Juve, that wanted me to substitute to Platini. It was almost signed, but to last hour there were problems, put the Madrid and my family was adapted to Spain. I happened it very bad the first day that went back to the Camp Nou of white. It was a day difìcil. There were a lot of feelings. It cost me a lot of. But we are professional and it is necessary to follow...".
