Q. Do they stop you on the street to ask for autographs?

R. Many people ask me for them, also many photos. I try to do as much as possible so that everyone is happy; I don’t get it, but I do my best.

P. Do you have time to do normal things, of your age or are you beginning to notice that your life is different from that of other kids?

R. There is not much time left over with football, but I always try to be with my girlfriend, with my family, playing video games, which is what I like the most… I also go to the beach.

P. For those who have not seen Endrick play yet, how do you describe yourself, what would you say about his way of moving on a pitch?

R. I am a player with character, who always tries to do the most difficult. I try to decide games, play a lot as a team, which is the most important thing. I never stop, I always want more. If I make a goal, I want two; if I make two, I want three. I would tell people who don’t know me that I am very persistent.

Endrick, target of Real Madrid, hallucinates when he sees himself on the covers of MARCA.

Q. What position do you prefer to play?

A. When I moved up to the U20s, I started as a winger, I played well and scored a lot of goals, but I prefer to play as a centre-forward, which is my original position. The important thing for me is to break the last line of defense to get into the box and score goals.

Q. If you have to look for a model, a player that you look like, who would it be?

R. I like and I identify with Mbapp, for being young and because I have his characteristics.

Q. And who is your idol?

R. Cristiano Ronaldo, a spectacular man, a phenomenon. I have to follow in his footsteps.

Q. Have you surprised yourself, shining so young at Copinha?

RS I expected to make a good Copinha, but not being so decisive. It was very big for me, I managed to play very well against players up to 21 years old. Thanks to God, he won the Dener (award for the best goal), the MVP of the fans and the MVP of Copinha. I would not have accomplished any of this without the team and without humility.

P. In Spain there are people who say they are over 15 years old…

R. Since I was little they said it, that’s why I celebrate my goals like that. The more they say it, the more strength they give me because it means I’m impressing them. I also put my index finger to my mouth for that.

P. And what about getting muscle too?

R. Yes, pretending to give me more strength. And the silence because they are telling lies.

P. What three dreams do you have, what goes through your head when you see your future?

R. I try not to think about the future, but about the present. I dream, of course, of playing in Europe, with the Brazilian National Team and winning titles.

P. At the moment, in Palmeiras. What does it represent for you?

R. It is the team that opened the doors for me in Sao Paulo. I have to thank everyone very much. He has believed in my potential, raising me to higher categories. I can only thank you and continue working because in July I will be 16 years old and I will be able to be in the professional team and win titles.

P. What does the interest of a club like Real Madrid mean to you?

R. It is a club that I have great affection for Cristiano Ronaldo, whom I always followed, with the four Champions Leagues that he won there. I have a great affection for Real for Cristiano, although I have also looked for things in their history and they are a very good team. It is very gratifying for me to know that they are watching me and witnessing my games, I thank God very much. I have to do more, it’s still not good, I have to give more. I still have a way to go.

Q. But he is not the only one. And the one from Barcelona?

R. It is a very good team too, spectacular, with incredible players, some of whom have already passed, such as Messi, Xavi and Iniesta. It’s good that one of the best in the world follows me as a player and a person. I thank God very much.

Q. You promised your father that you would be a professional to put an end to the economic problems. It’s already there…

R. There is little left, but I try not to think about that, but that there is still a long way to go because I have a lot to do. My family is very special to me, my siblings, my parents, everyone. I want to give my brother and my family a better life here in Brazil.
