West Ham wing-back Michail Antonio says his career has been a constant battle.
Antonio admits he's always having to prove doubters wrong.
"My best advice is to keep going, keep pushing until you reach your goal," the 29-year-old told Sky Sports. "Even if you feel like you've reached your peak, you can always be better.
"Once I've achieved something, I will always push myself to achieve something else. When I got into the reserves, I said I need to get into the first team. When I got into the first team, I wanted to get into the Championship and then I wanted to get into the Premier League.
"It's a constant battle, you've got to prove yourself to new players, new managers and the fans. I scored nine goals and had 11 assists in the Championship and was doing better than certain players in my position, but when I spoke to Premier League managers, they told me I was not consistent enough."
