[Gabigol talks about Flamengo fans’ support of him] It’s inexplicable. It’s something else. Every game is packed out. Wherever we go we have enormous support. We all know Flamengo’s history, that they have the biggest fan base, that they are really passionate, but you have to feel it, to be on the pitch to truly understand. It’s extraordinary, beyond anything I imagined. It’s overwhelmed me

[Flamengo and Brazil striker Gabriel Barbosa says he would love to play in the Premier League] Firmino is great, I really admire him. He’s been successful for many years in Europe. He is a powerful forward and he has been great for Brazil. He is an inspiration that I look up to. It would be a pleasure to play with him. Maybe we could team up for Brazil in the future and Liverpool is a team that everyone wants to play for

[The last six editions of the tournament have been won by the reigning European champions, with half of those finals played against the Libertadores winners] It’s hard to talk about this at the moment. My focus is totally on the Club World Cup. I like the Premier League very much. It combines technique, strength and speed. I always follow the games from Brazil. It really is a place I would like to play. It’s one of the best leagues in the world. Every player dreams of being a champion and winning the Premier League must be indescribable. But I still have a contract with Inter and Flamengo until the end of 2019

These are different times. When I went to Europe I was young and had many things to learn. Now I find myself much more experienced and mature, living the best phase of my life - 2019 has been a magical year. I feel like a new player. Europe is a natural place for all players who stand out in Brazil but things didn’t go the way I imagined on my first trip. Adaptation is never easy, despite being with my family there. It’s a new culture, a new country, a new way of playing. All this, whether you like it or not, ends up messing with you. But I do not regret going. I never bowed my head in the face of difficulties and always tried to work the best way possible because I trust my potential and know how much I can learn and improve
