“Of course we knew him, there were big rumours around him and Bayern Munich but we knew before if you are interested in football, upcoming players, he was in the focus way before I ever thought about being his manager.

“He can have his input on the line, he has the ability to be decisive with his runs, his speed and at the moment we have opted for this structure.

“He can play in the half positions offensively, this is clear and we wanted to take the chance against Wolves so we went with Chilly and him, today it was Marcos and him.

“He had another good game, if we can improve the precision of our guys in the box then maybe we can score more goals.”
