He is firmly established as the number 1 at the Estadio Dragao and says the enthusiasm by which has has been received by both players and fans has been refreshing. In an interview with AS, he spoke of how he is enjoying everything being new to him again.

“I came to Porto to get the enthusiasm back and so it has proved. The ambition to do well in your work is very important for a footballer. We have a beautiful profession and can reach many people. I want to win trophies and display them for the fans. It would be nice because it would be something new, despite all the celebrations with Madrid in the Cibeles,” the World Cup winner commented.

And he added: “The truth is [coming to Porto] was a sudden and radical change. The sense is that everything is different to the previous situation but the goal is the same: play football.”
