It’s always good when you see your name with legends of a club like Liverpool, it’s a different feeling and I’m very happy about that. But I always try to look at myself and I want more.

It’s not about individual awards, it’s something for the team. I’m sure if I have a chance to give it to someone else to score, I will – it’s not about me, it’s about us
