Speaking on 'The Greatest Game with Jamie Carragher' podcast per The Mirror, the England international said:

"I was trying to do the best I can do. Being a footballer, there is criticism and people doubting you all the time.

"At that time, I was a young player and there were one or two things Luis did in training that I didn't like.

"It made me feel I wasn't good enough to be in the same team in training.
