“He adds something completely different. It adds more confidence and belief to what we’re doing and what we’re building.
“We know he’s a more experienced player than he was when he was here last time, he has evolved and had an unbelievable career, I’m sure he likes all the talk about ‘he’s too old’, make it personal and he’ll show what he can do.”
