Dani Alves, at the gala 'The Best' with his partner

Always think about the good of the place where you have grown up and where you have made history as a player or coach and do not want to hurt. If you extract so much, what you can do is make mistakes, and he does not like that, since he is a perfectionist. And sometimes he moves away so as not to make mistakes. In the last year we no longer felt Pep like that, since he is a p … genius“says, clearly, the footballer of Paris Saint-Germain.
