"Destiny is a funny thing," said the Ecuador winger.
"We had so much determination at the start of the season because we wanted to make up for last year and win the title.
"So whilst you canâ€™t doubt what Robin has added, we may have done it without him.
"But Robin has great ability, huge skill levels and can almost solve any problem he comes up against. As a winger it is a joy to play and work alongside him."
