"This season is about to be scary watch," the Dutch forward wrote on social media on Wednesday.

In his first message on social media on Thursday, he said: "I see how certain tactics been played around me as a football player.

"It's all good, God likes this about me.. that's why I'm favored.

"My whole life I wasn't good enough, didn't apply to the standard looks and didn't have the right behavior.

"That's what happens when you live freely."
