“He'll be in there every training session until last minute, every match until the last second, so you can totally rely on him

“He's living for goals, living for scoring, and when he scores he has so much confidence and is one of the great No.9s in world football. That's clear.

“If you play for so long in a club like ours and have a connection with the fans, it's clear you have character and deserve this appreciation.

“Hopefully he'll show that, not tomorrow, but from Wednesday onwards, to convince all of you. Tomorrow it's not necessary to prove me right!”
