Villas-Boas said: "I think he has received his confidence from me and he is showing his quality.

"In the summer, we told him we really wanted him here - that is why we spoke with his agent and the chairman about his contract renewal.

"So at the moment, we are extremely happy with what he is doing. And I am sure that is having an impact on the way he feels about himself."
