The City attacker said: “This man comes out of a little town out of Belgium dreaming of playing at the highest stage possible.

“I’ve worked and competed against everybody trying to win the ultimate.
“But the most important word is COMPETING.

“We know this is a big business and I know I am part of this business.

“Let’s keep inspiring the next generation of footballers and keep the fans dreaming.”
