"The first time I played against him was in the reserves the year after, when I was 15 and he was 18 and already playing in the first team of Genk. They came down with quite a strong team. It was a good game and I played against him at the same level the next year, and then later on when I'd broken into the first team. So we've played each other quite a few times. It's nothing new.
"There is a rivalry but I always like to look at myself first, to try to improve myself and do the best for my team. And if there is competition, it can only improve you as a player. The way he's playing, it has motivated me to do better and show my qualities when I'm playing for Everton."
