He said: “The more you grow, you grow a thicker skin. You start to realise you can’t control everything you wish to control.
“This is why am enjoying playing my football again. The summer transfer failures did affect me. As the new Premier League season started, it was still in my head.
“After some time of thinking about it, I told myself I had to get over it. Going around crying or thinking too much nevr helps. I focused on myself to be better.
“The team has never disrespected me, the fans, or the club in any way. So I can never disrespect them.”
