Through his Facebook account he said that he lacks the ability and ambition to adventure in politics.

“Are they saying that I will run for Mayor? Come on, don’t be like that. I don’t know where they get these kinds of ideas from. I said it already: I don’t have either the abilities or the ambitions for that,” he said.

He mentioned that his job is to be a chef and that he will focus in his work in gastronomy.

“I’m a chef and that implies wonderful tasks. 2010 will be a year of huge challenges. Let’s get it done,” he added.
