“It is completely my own fault if I haven’t won the Ballon d’Or yet. In this sport you need to sacrifice a lot, and when I was young I grew up without the norms many kids have. Even if I have a nice house or nice cars, sometimes I just want to live a normal life. I want to become the best player in the world and score a lot of goals.”
Can’t find much to quibble with there. Mario can be his own worst enemy at times, but the above indicates he recognizes there is much work to be done.
