‘So if I can’t play at the highest level, I rather avoid unnecessary criticism if I don’t run enough or can’t score the same amount of goals as I did in Europe.
‘So I want to play somewhere I am happy and comfortable. Also I want to play in a league where I can still perform and keep enjoying playing soccer.
‘So I don’t think I will return to South America, but the United States or Asia are very good options when I turn 37.’
