"The 4 has given me a lot of luck and has accompanied me throughout my career with Real, but don't think that I haven't considered changing it for 93," he said.

Asked by one supporter about the most important goal that he has ever scored, the seasoned defender replied, "I don't know which goal is my favourite. Maybe the equaliser in the Champions League final because it took us a lot to win and scoring in the last minute is special."

The 2010 World Cup winner with Spain made it clear that he is not ready yet to hang up his boots. "I still have years here as a player and I enjoy every day."

The 30-year-old acknowledged that he is grateful for reaching 500 matches with the record European football champions Real Madrid.
