‘If he stays fit and stays in this country then he’ll do it. It’s just a matter of when. He’s doing what great goalscorers do, and there aren’t many better than him.
‘First and foremost, he’s the third player to get 200 goals. Only myself and [Wayne] Rooney have done that, so it’s a small club.
‘His form is as good as ever. His team’s not doing as well but his stats, that doesn’t seem to be affecting him at all.
‘He had a huge disappointment at the World Cup but I think he’s come back mentally stronger than ever, and that doesn’t surprise me. I’m a huge fan of his. He’s a fantastic player.
‘I’ve had it [the record] for such a long time that I’ve always said it’ll go one day.
