“There are a lot of South Americans in the team so it’s a little easier. Working together is a great source of motivation.”

“I haven’t played that much as a No.10, not enough to play there full time. I feel very comfortable playing as a No.6 or No.8 and playing with two or three in midfield suits me fine,” he explained about his position at the team.

“I want to keep improving every day, I play with great players, a great standard and I want to keep working hard to reach their level and live up to the expectations of my teammates and the whole club.”

“I feel very good in this team and I think we can do something great this year in the Champions League,” he continued.

“He organized things for me even before I arrived. He has been a great help and I hope we can keep working hard together to take the team as far as possible in every competition we play in.”
