“At a smaller club you play all the time. At a bigger club, you need to use game time. That’s how it is. You sign an agreement. This is a big club. We want to be a big team. For this you need to take what you get and make the best of it. That’s how it works, not only for Divock but for all the players.”

“I’d say I am close to Divock. We have good talks. Will he get impatient? Maybe. What can I do? It can happen and I have to deal with it. That’s why they have this thing between their nose and their chin – we can really talk about it.

“Life as a football player isn’t always pure sunshine. There is a lot of work to do and sometimes you have to wait a bit longer. When you look back on your career at 35, you want to have been the best player you could have been. For this, you need to use each session and Divock is in a good way.”
