"

When Thomas Tuchel moved me from defence to midfield, I struggled. Everything happened so much faster than I was used to, 'tough' was an understatement, yet that's precisely how I gained qualities I didn't think I could have.

You become a better player when you leave of your comfort zone."

"

There are things within our control and there are things we wield no power over.

Whether the club decides to recruit another striker as rumours have it, that's beyond my role. What I can do is to continue working hard for the team, giving my best in matches, and banging them goals."

"

I played in a stadium for the first time when I was 11. I was so scared, I barely touched the ball, I practically couldn't run. I'll never forget how my mother walked out onto the pitch and grabbed me by the ears after the match—not because I played poorly but because I was scared.

She said, 'You can miss 60 goals. No one cares. But the fact that you refuse to play because you’re scared, it can haunt you all your life.'”
