He then went on to state that he tries the best that he possibly can but added that his teammates also play a significant role in getting the best out of him.
"I try to be the best player I can be. I think it's obviously a team game, so it's about the players I have around me. The players I have in training, the manager, the support I have all around me that enables me to be as good as I can be.”
Finally, he finished off by stating that he isn’t fazed about the Ballon d’Or claims made on him.
"Accolades may or may not come in the future, it doesn't really faze me as much as maybe it does other players."
