“As for the goals, I want to keep scor­ing goals, maybe I can be the high­est goalscorer, maybe not, but I would love to be­come the high­est goalscorer and to keep giv­ing my best for my club.

“So, I want to get as many goals I can get for my team and qual­ify for the Cham­pi­ons League,” he added.
