“Ronaldinho. He was really different and I used to watch him when I was growing up. I was really into him and his style of football. As I grew up I switched over to Ronaldo, Hazard – I just watch everybody because I’m a fan of football so I love very good football players. I’m a fan of every good football player so I watch every football player, even my teammates. I then pick and try to add it to myself.”
Quality within the squad:
“There are lots of quality players – Cucho (Hernández), (Ismaïla) Sarr, Joāo Pedro, Imrân (Louza), a lot of players. We don’t just have a lot of quality players; we have a lot of young players who are ambitious. Every training session is really intense. If you slow down someone will take it. You want to train 100 per cent, you want to play 100 per cent. If you don’t train good or play well you know that someone will come in and play better than you. I like the group and everyone is working good.”
“I remember watching them and it’s the Premier League so it will be a tough game. High pressing, running and chasing. They’re not a team that wants to keep the ball and play. We just need to be ready for anything that comes.”
“I think every player knows Jamie Vardy. He is a very good player and very fast which will be a problem, but we will see what will happen at the end of the day.”
