Football has been my life and Real Madrid my home. Together, we have lived unique moments.
I'm fully aware that Qatar are striving to become one of the leading sporting nations and they have big plans for football. Winning the honour of hosting the 2022 World Cup is the best possible proof of their intentions.
My first choice will always be Real Madrid, but working at a global level for La Liga can't possibly offend anyone.
I don't think Madrid would be Madrid without Barcelona and vice versa.
My decision to pursue my career at Schalke 04 is in no way a mistake.
