“I’m very happy because they have treated me very well since the first day I got here. I’m very happy with everything that involves the club, my teammates, the staff and the management team.
“It’s true that we’ve got a lot of young talent, that in the future can make the difference. At the same time the youngsters are quite developed already, like Leroy [Sane], Raheem [Sterling], Bernardo [Silva] and Gabriel [Jesus].
“There are a lot of players, that have got things to improve and learn, but being in this club you learn and improve faster than anywhere else.
“We have a good team, we need to be focused and if we are at 100 per cent, we have lots of chances to do great things.”
