“We have different qualities, a different style of play and, with Bruno and in general, I think I am learning to get to know all my teammates better. I also get to know how they run, how they want to have the ball, how they move around and how I move around the pitch for them.
“We are starting to get that connection. With Bruno, it’s a good connection and it’s nice to have such a good footballer in front of me.”
