My mother and my brothers are on the platform, who suffered a lot too. I am very happy, "he emphasized before breaking down in tears in television statements after the meeting." The truth is that I always say: individual awards are secondary, because we are here for something else, "he said when asked by his record of 79 goals, which allowed him to surpass Pelé (77) and be the top scorer for teams in South America.
