After the match, the former Manchester United and PSG forward explained how he has been able to maintain his goals scoring ability despite his advanced age. He told Sky Italia:
“I feel more complete, I have more experience. When you are young you are still growing. You spend a moment where you are learning things, playing games, you have moments and situations that repeat themselves.
“Now I feel complete. If I had the condition of 20-30 years, nobody would stop me. But anyway, they don't stop me even now.”
“Physically I'm fine. I train a lot. I always have. I'm playing well, with a great experience.
“I play with available companions who listen, bring intensity. I don't accept when one relaxes in training or in a match. My philosophy is 'train how you play the game'.”
The attacker was in isolation after contracting the deadly coronavirus before the FIFA international break, but he was only focused on returning to the pitch while in hiding.
