“I have tried to be a leader since I came. You have big names in the locker room who have to do that job, but now I feel I can do that.

“I put that responsibility on myself, to try and push every player to be better every day. That is the only way to succeed. It is not an easy task, but it is something I have to do. I feel it is my role in the team, but I still have to improve to manage these situations,” he added.
