The playmaker put speculation over his future to one side to impress his manager and has been happy to adapt to Mourinho's methods. "I just keep going, train well and prepare for every game," he said.
"I just have to do my best in training and in games. It's important to play with the ball and without the ball, but I'm very happy and looking forward to playing a lot of games throughout the season.
"I try to improve every season, my first and second seasons were fantastic but I want this one to be even better so I will try to improve, score goals, assist and do whatever I have to do."
