“The Champions League final was the worst moment in my life as a footballer,“ he says. ”The only moment I cried. So you understand what I’m saying. That was how much emotion was going through me.
“I’ve the opportunity to be on that stage and God has taken that. It was absolutely crazy. I couldn’t forgive him at that moment. I couldn’t and this is strong. I am very religious in some ways and I couldn’t understand.
“That is something so special for you as a footballer, the Champions League final.
“I felt I had participated and wanted to be part of that final,” he adds.
“The manager wanted me in that squad because he felt I was the perfect tool to destroy Chelsea. I scored 13 goals against them so it would have been a very nice story, I would say. But it wasn’t to be.
“I remember this as the most painful moment in my career. I had worked so hard to come back and, a few days before the final, I get that little thing that disappears maybe 10 days after.
“It was just a joke.”
