David Platt: "Samir, since he has been here, has blown hot and cold.
"When he has been hot he has been absolutely roasting, he has been a tremendous player.
"Every player can have his good games and bad games.
"Samir is an exceptional player. You don't expect anything different from him.
"Even when people have been critical of him, I don't think he has had bad games. He is a very important player for us."
