He scored 15 goals in 23 Ligue 1 appearances this season, helping Nice finish third, he could play Champions League football with them next year, but all he focuses on right now is his vacation, as he told reporters at an event in Brescia, his home town in Italy.
Now I’m going to pull the plug out for two weeks. I’m going to go on holiday and not think about anything. I won’t even watch the Champions League final. Then I will evaluate everything
the Italian striker said, adding that there is only one thing he has very clear in his mind.
One day I would like to end my career in my home city, but I’m still young
he said. The 26-year-old was also asked if he still thinks he could win a Ballon d’Or, giving a humouristic answer.
As long as Messi and Ronaldo are around, I would have to kill them off first
he said, smiling, adding a line that shows he is aware of the fact that he hasn’t, up to now, done what he could have done as a player, given his enormous talent.
If I think back on what I have achieved, it isn’t much. I can do much more.
