“I just don’t really listen to too many people!” he adds. “The only people I properly listen to are my manager, my coaches, my team-mates, my family and my friends. That’s it.

“The only thing you need to think about is playing football. That’s the be-all and end-all of a footballer’s life. The only thing you have to think about is going out on the pitch. If things aren’t right out there, you fix it.
”If things are going well, why are they going so well? You have to then keep those standards at that level. I feel like that’s the way it is. Player ratings and things like that, they aren’t something I’m interested in. All I’m interested in, in that sense, is what the manager thinks.“
