"In that game, already you could see 'wow', everybody knew him. But the first time my team played against a team he was involved in, you could really see that he's a difference maker.
"That's what he shows now, he's settled, he's a very influential player for United. I know people talk mostly about his goal involvements which is very important, but he is the link-up for a lot of other situations as well.
"I don't know him well enough but he seems to be a leader as well. So, good signing - unfortunately - for United."
