2008 - 2012
"The highest peak in my career! Top of the mountain! Coming from small country, to reach this high on my football journey will forever make me smile with pride! I was able to learn, train and play with giants! We were so good, when we use to line up in the tunnel before a game i was able to see the respect and fear in the eyes of the other team, and i knew they were already beaten! I became a winner! We won titles, we won cups, i scored goals, made assists… Even if we lost and i didn’t score, i was smiling inside because i was playing for Man Utd!
The biggest club for me! I won the golden boot for the most goals in the league, in the season that we made history by becoming 19th times Champions of EPL! Beating the record held by Liverpool!
And because of that... We Are Immortal!"
