"Even Steven Gerrard learns a lot every day. I am just at the beginning of my career so it's only logical to say I am still learning."
The Dutch international admits seven months spent under the tutelage of Rafa Benitez at Melwood have helped him grow as a footballer.
"We talk a lot about different things, not just about how to improve my game but also how to improve the play of the team," he revealed. "Tactically, defensively and offensively. I can definitely improve."
