”I was having the feelings if I get one minute, I will score for my club and God being so good I made it tonight so I’ll say thanks to everyone for the support.

”I dedicate this goals to my club, the supporters, my family, my mom. Mum, you have been there for me since. Mum thank you very much for how far you have brought me. I thank very much I really appreciate you [mum].

”He’s a great person. He is teaching me a lot and I’m learning a lot from him. He’s someone who has achieved a lot in his career,” he added.
