Gerard Hammered is a very peculiar footballer, that moves away of the usual form to act of any another sporty by his clear form to speak or to think on several subjects. The Catalan defence has generated controversial in numerous occasions by his controversial statements, but any of them went at random. The '3' culé recognises openly that it feels to taste when his words generate controversy.

I hammered it recognised that no short to the hour to speak, although it know that his words will be controversial. "I have a good time, have to go finding inducements, there are times that look for a motivation and when winning in contrary fields you pitan even more. Are when I go it to wrap and do it because me apetece. I consider it part of the show. More when we see that often, almost everything is lie. At the end, to the two days anybody agrees of what have said. Salts here, can soltar until a falsity and give the same", said.

The defence explained that, little by little, his surroundings has accustomed to his form to act. "My mother and my father are those that put me more broncas when I arm wrap. Also my representative, Arturo Channels, especially when it began. It put me in wash you and had me half hour to the telephone. Now no longer it calls me anybody. Already they are fed up. In way employer go more moderate", manifested.

"Before it put me in 'wash you' and had me half hour to the telephone, now no longer calls me anybody"

Also it spoke of the bond between politics and sport. "The people when it goes to vote does it secretly. Why to the players force us to position us? I can plead or defend the right to decide as I have defended to The Red with the selection during 14 years. The sport and the politics go together, of the hand, always. The Glass of the King​ calls of Rey; when you play an international party sound the hymns, and this is political. That the sportsmen can not wet? Hostia! Have the same right to be citizen that any one", commented.

Apropos this, Hammered spoke on the sentence of the procés. "It has been very hard and has caused altercations. If the people that promotes to do the things without violence has fallen them this, when they have sustained that it had to give what pursued of peaceful form... All could fix of other a lot of ways, but only will attain when the politicians do his work. They have been substituted by judges and these have dictated sentence. Each one will have his opinion on her: ones that is toneless, others that strong and others that is well. But we did not have to have arrived to this point", aimed.

Besides, it asked understanding between all the parts. "The politicians of both sides had to have done his work and have not fulfilled, although ones are in the prison and others no. Defend with arguments can not be bad. You are you two months or three shut in a room until you arrive to an agreement. We with the people of the selection have spoken one thousand times of politics, but afterwards have gone out to the field to play", sentenced.

Personal life

I hammered it is at the same time man of businesses and footballer: "Hardly I sleep four or five hours. It is missing me time for everything. In the club have understood it and there are not problems. I employ my free time in devoting it to what likes me". Besides, it ensured that it is somebody distant. "It is difficult to cultivate now real friendships. The people like me attracts, seduces. Therefore I protect me. I do not open me with ease, until can seem distant", explained.

Finally, it spoke on his children. "The elder is more footballer and the small more artist. Milan Is a passionate. It is six years old and it knows things that do not know neither I: alignments, teams... The other day it was training with a team that have formed with the children of Luis (Suárez) and Leo, put a goal and said 'This is as the one who marked Kroos in the Eurocopa against Sweden'. I remained me amazed. It puts in youtube and is like a sponge. The another is more fantasioso, touches the battery. The football costs him more", concluded.
