"As a player you always learn from every single coach you had in your career. Everyone has something to give. Personally, of all the coaches I had, Rafa Benitez has been the most influencial for me, the one who brought the best out of me. He is a manager with great tactical knowledge, who pays attention to every detail and that has the ability to bring the best out of every player. As I said before, Rafa has been the most influencial manager for me and the one with whom I learnt the most".
