Barcelona's Daniel Alves: I'm sick for football

New Barcelona fullback Daniel Alves admits he's obsessed by the game.

"I'm more than a player; I am a sick for football," said the Brazil international. "I do not know if I have it more than anyone else, but certainly in a different way to others. Sometimes I fought with the family because I wanted to watch football on television.

"On TV in Seville, if a game is repeated three times, I saw it three times. I see some children playing in the street and I go out to watch them. Sometimes, playing with my kids, I will have one eye on the TV if they are showing a game .

"It is impossible to stop loving football."
