Viana now plays for Al Ahli in the UAE.
He told Marca: "He's a very normal guy, more so than other people might think. The key to his success is that he has a positive family atmosphere around him that gives him the peace he needs to be able to play his football at the very highest level. I've read in the press that he says he wants to win the Champions League and I hope he does. He's playing fantastically and I'm sure he'll win something with 'Los Blancos' this season."
