"I know when the team needs my help defensively. But my role in the club is to win, help the team to win and to score goals – [the defensive side] is part of my job.
"The people who don’t want to see that is because they don’t like me but to be honest I’m 36, I win everything so am I going to be worried about the people who say bad things about me?
"I sleep good at night. I go to my bed with my conscience very good. Keep going with that because I will still close mouths and win things."
