It is not the same to play football and be a footballer. Here, I try to explain how my life has been shaped by the beautiful game, the experiences I have had, and the decisions I had to make along the way, consciously or subconsciously, on and off the pitch.




Several stadiums have had a big impact on my career (Mestalla, Stamford bridge, Old Trafford, Soccer City, The Olympic Stadium of Kiev, Allianz Arena, Wembley, Amsterdam Arena…) but football has let me travel so I’ve had the chance of meeting plenty more. I’ve located and compiled them so that you can see them on my particular ‘Mata´s wold map’. I hope you like it.
