“He is a great character, totally focused and totally committed to us. He is under a long term contract so I expect we will keep him.”
The German added: “I believe he has scored wonder goals before this transfer window was open.
“I doubt any scout or manager will think differently after this goal or one scene. Everyone knows him and knows his quality.
“He has scored these types of goals for us before. He is our player, he is a key figure in our push to finish this season very well.
“I am pretty happy we have him and delighted he scored this quite important goal. I am delighted with his performance and his performances over the last few months.
“He has developed as a player and a person in terms of his attitude and his personality. He is still young but at 24 or 25 you are not the player of 18.”
