He said: "Since I started football, defenders have always tried to kick me. I can cope with that, as long as the tackles don't kill me. This is football.
"Sometimes I try to keep going but I can't - the fouls are too hard and I have to go on the floor.
"But I don't think things have gone too far. If I create a lot, I can get fouls for free-kicks and penalties, so sometimes [being fouled] it's good. I always just want to score or make an assist, to make good things for the team."
