"We have a lot of games and I hope to get my chance, and I hope to play well. Of course I've wanted to score but I also need to say thank you to the guys.
"They've done so well in the Premier League and we are playing Barcelona in the Champions League. There's a lot of games, so hopefully we'll win a lot of trophies.
"I'm happy for the other strikers who have got the goals. From now I want to get goals as well and get close to them,
"I had one problem, and then another, but that is the past and I don't want to think about the past. I know my value and that the fans will love me."
