I’m ready. I am ready to play. It’s a good chance for me, for the fans, the club, to take it a step further.

He sees himself prepared to handle the current cast to new glories.
“People think I’m just coming from the heart, or blah blah blah, but I came back to show that I can still rock and do my best.
I am here to win. People talk about age, but they should understand—and they know—that I’m different from everyone else. I show this year after year, and now it will be no different.
