Calling Liverpool the best team in the world, he went to call it a source of pleasure.
“When you’re linked with that team it makes you very proud but in case of that, it’s a pleasure.”
In spite of his successful season, he humbly admitted that he still has a long way to go. He believes that he needs to improve in order to play alongside what he thinks are a lot of good players at Anfield.
