“If you don’t score, what happens? You sulk on the bus the whole way back.”
“I had a rough year, my first year at Man City, a big club for a big transfer fee. There was a lot of talk, a lot of pressure, and I didn’t think I was being spoken about in a fair manner.”
“I’ve learned how to deal with pressure more. I’m still trying to achieve more in my game and add more to it. I feel like I’m still learning every day, and I want to keep on improving.”
“I’m a person, when something’s not going right, I’m looking at myself and seeing how I can improve and what I can do better.”
“When it rains, nobody hides inside. You just go out and enjoy it. The other thing I remember is begging my grandmother for money to go and get a grapenut ice cream.”
“If you grew up the same way I grew up, don’t listen to what certain tabloids want to tell you. They just want to steal your joy. They just want to pull you down.”
“I don’t want to be perceived as the money-grabbing 20-year-old; I just want to be perceived as the kid who loves to play football.”
“Something good happens or something bad, I think, ‘What can I do better? What didn’t I do this year?”
“As a young boy – I was 20-21, around that age – I didn’t think I was being treated right. It can affect anyone, not just me. It was about how I bounced back, how I had to think and sit down and try to move on. Not let that defeat me.”
“Goals can help lift me to be one of the best two or three in the world, most definitely. You score the goal that wins the football match five, six, seven times a season: you are one of the best in the world. And that’s what I need to do. I need to keep being consistent.”
“There’s a perception in certain parts of the media that I love ‘bling.’ I love diamonds. I love to show off. I really don’t understand where that comes from.”
“England is still a place where a naughty boy who comes from nothing can live his dream.”
“I’m sorry to say it, but we have to be more arrogant and more streetwise because we are coming up against some great teams who have that streetwise mentality. They bring their play into it: you do what you have to do to win a game. Simple as that. Be streetwise and clever.”
