That’s a dif­fi­cult one. There are so many things, I think I’m go­ing to have to go against you and say the tro­phy! It was a mas­sive dream for me per­son­ally – as a kid I never thought I’d get the op­por­tu­nity to even play in the Pre­mier League, never mind lift it! I dreamt of it as a lit­tle boy – peo­ple don’t see that side of it. They know you’re a foot­baller but don’t see the kind of jour­ney you took to get there. The tro­phy lift was a sym­bol of what we did last sea­son. A spe­cial mo­ment for all of the lads, and me per­son­ally!”

“There are a few! I love Fer­nand­inho – a lot of the boys will say the same. He just goes about his job, he’s a world-class player, he plays week in, week out. He’s a top player and de­serves more credit than he gets. He’s the type of guy that likes to be low key and just goes about his busi­ness, which just makes him even bet­ter!”
