He revealed: "He told me: Well, respect me, because I am old enough to be your father."

He continued, "From that time on, I call him ‘Dad’, and he calls me ‘Son’."


When asked about his favorite player, he replied: "Cristiano Ronaldo."

He continued: "Playing with Eden Hazard is like a dream because I consider it my role model. It is an honor to play next to him."
