"You see how young players are developing, like Amad, and I was really pleased with his performance and it was a great goal. He is very good. He has high potential.

He fought himself back and had to wait long for his chance and, on Sunday, and also tonight, he was very good," he said after the game, as quoted by the club's official website.

"As a player, you need to be patient," he said. "It’s not easy when you train hard [and] don’t get what you want. Now I have got my chance and I scored. I’m very happy for that," he said, as quoted by Yahoo Sports.
