 I can say about Martin that I have never felt so secure with any other player. It didn't happen with Rooney or Cristiano Ronaldo,

 It did surprise me to be made captain. The obvious issue is my English. It’s not that great, so communicating with players is not always easy.

 But I am thriving on the responsibility, both on and off the field. If the lads are a bit down then it’s up to me to make sure they are in the right frame of mind. If things are not going well on the field then it’s up to me to lead by example. Sometimes in a game – even with the best will in the world – a striker can drift out for 10 minutes and then come back in to it. Now that I am captain, I can’t afford to do that. You have to be 100 per cent concentrated all the time.

 Myself and the manager had a chat at the end of the season. We cleared the air and now everything is nice between us. We didn’t have to thrash out anything in particular. It was just a case of two guys sitting down and having a chat. We were open and honest and that sorted it. But when I spoke about the training [in April], I still think, at the time, I was right to say that. This year, the games are so regular that there isn’t time for that issue of double session training to arise. But I still stand by what I said.

 There are lots of factors you can add to becoming more prolific as a goalscorer. Roberto has helped me improve to a certain extent, but the big thing for me is that I’ve been playing regularly. I’ve not just been playing the odd game, like I was before [at United], and also my fitness is very good. I’ve not felt this good fitness-wise for a long time.

 I was disappointed at the time when he went and I still feel sad about it. We combined well on the field and he was a good team-mate in the dressing room as well. I had a conversation with Carlo Ancelotti. We had a chat, but there was never any concrete offer. I only ever talk about proper, written offers that arrive with clubs, and that was the case with City. We’ve still got a bit of growing to do as a team. If you look at those around us: United, Chelsea, Tottenham, they have had time together and time to develop and build a team. We’ve still got players settling in, a lot of new faces and players having to adapt to the English game. We’ve got the players, and we’ve got the quality. It’s just a case of building a team now.
