 When you consider all the attributes forwards need, Wayne is No.1 in my opinion. He's the best forward I've ever played with.

 But everything's going well for me this season and if we can win the title it will be even better. That's my main wish. If, in May, we've won the title and I'm there to lift it, then it would be a personal best for me. I'd love to do that for the manager, who's been here almost 25 years, as well as my team-mates and the fans.

 He [Sir Alex Ferguson] is one of the most successful managers in the history of the game. I write things down about the way we train and how he treats people. It is like a school. You work with the best manager and play with the best players. I try to learn. I am at the biggest club in the world. If I can learn anywhere it is here.

 At first I was star struck but when you start to know him, you see he is a very nice guy. He jokes around with the players but when things don't go the way he wants he can be tough. It is not that it makes you feel uncomfortable. He just wants you to be sure in yourself. Every human being is different. You need different approaches and he goes to every player and speaks to them alone to motivate them.

 I always tried to become my best, the boss always believed in me. Today my performance is for him as well, he always pushes me to be the player he wants me to be. It was 2-0, then 2-2 and we were playing Liverpool so the boss was going to be very furious after the game. We scored the third goal, we deserved it more than them. 3-2 for us is a good result - everybody is going to be happy.

 Tomorrow is another day, Sunday is another game. Now the game is in the past. It’s good to rewind it in my head, especially all the goals I scored. I think we deserved to win more than Liverpool. I know what I can do, [I’ll] try to stay grounded. Tomorrow is a different day, [I’ll] try to improve even more [and] work on my weaknesses.
