Chicha's debt to Sir Alex

talent he has is unbelievable."

Chicharito's second half strike was his 50th goal for the Reds. It's a landmark he is proud of but he was keen to reiterate that team achievements come before personal ones.

"I'm very pleased to have 50 goals but the most important thing is I have won two league titles in three years and played in the Champions League final. Like I always say the most important thing is the team and to help the team win trophies," he added.

"It's the first time in my career that I've been involved in a game with 10 goals! It was a crazy match and also a bit frustrating because we wanted to win it. I think we thought we had it won which was a mistake because we relaxed a little bit and West Brom made very good substitutions which helped their team. It's frustrating but the most important thing is we have won the league.

"All the players and fans are expecting things for next season," continued the Mexican, "but we need to take this break, look forward and enjoy the fact we have the trophy back."
