"From Day One, he was in a similar position to me. He had loved playing for Manchester United and probably thought he wouldn't play for another club in England but he ended up coming here and found the perfect place for him. The environment, the team spirit has suited him down to the ground. You can count the number of mistakes he's made on one hand over the three years he's been here. He's definitely one of the top three keepers in the Premier League. Consistency is his key and he's getting better all the time too. Every good team needs a great keeper and we have got one."
