Ricardo, what sort of reception did you get on your return to the Portugal squad?
I already knew everyone: the players, the coach, the chairman of the federation... I got a nice welcome from the squad. With 80 caps to my name, they didn't make me sing a song or anything (laughs). If the national side needs me, I'm ready to help.
How do you feel physically?
I feel good. Better than at the start of the season. I'm working hard to stay fit. It's good for me, for the club and for the national team.
Saturday's game against Évian TG is coming up fast...
It's important to be able to juggle playing for your club and your country. Now we're back in Monaco, we need to focus 100% on Saturday's match.
