“It feels good and I feel good. Winning trophies is always amazing but especially when you play at Wembley. A great atmosphere, 85,000 people… it’s not every week you play a final and you win it. This is the second time we are here, and the second trophy I get here with this club, so I am super happy.

“This is why I came. I came to win and I’m winning. This is what I said before I came, not like the other ones who use the situations when they win and they talk. I talk before and I do it, that’s the big difference.

“I think, with the manager (Jose Mourinho), he’s used to winning. When you bring in a manager like this, you know what you get and, when you bring me, you know what you get.”

Enjoy that? Give it a share!
