Football is a simple game. Twenty-two men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end, the Germans always win.
I've only got a Saturday job so my weekdays are generally pretty free.
We are in the entertainment business and we all know if you are top of the tree you get the big money. Those of us who have been in it are the fortunate ones but we understand that we probably don't deserve it as much as the nurses or teachers.
I know I am extraordinarily lucky to be doing what I am doing. I have worked hard along the way and I have been blessed too. I have had a great life.

You've got no chance of reaching the top if you're just playing for money.
