It is an honour and privilege to receive this great award for the Most Valuable Player, it motivates me to keep working harder. I feel like a very important player at Real Madrid and I hope it stays that way. I am proud to be in the Liga BBVA. It is no coincidence that I have renewed with the club for five years. To me this is the best league in the world and I am at the best club in the world, how could I not be happy? Hopefully next year I can win the award for the best player. I will be working towards it."
