Cardiff City's on-loan midfielder Jason Koumas is fed up with being thought of as "difficult".
The Wales international has gained an unwanted reputation but has shone under Dave Jones at Ninian Park, scoring 11 league goals from midfield as the Bluebirds challenge for a play-off place in the Championship.
Such form has seen him emerge as a key figure on this season's Actim Index, the official player ratings system.
Koumas is not part of West Bromwich Albion manager Bryan Robson's plans after failing to set the Premiership alight but is keen to shake off his image.
Koumas said: "He (Robson) has different plans that's all, I'm not bitter about it. It's up to him.
"That's the problem I've had throughout my career. I come across as someone who is always falling out with managers but the truth is completely different and I'm disappointed with the false perception some people have of me."
There is no false perception on the field with Koumas in stunning form, lifting Cardiff to 22nd overall on the Index as well as propelling them into seventh place.
Of his midfield counterparts, only Reading's Steve Sidwell has a better away score than Koumas' best of 0.41. No midfielder has scored more goals.
He is also second in the midfield charts for shots on target, with his impressive tally of 39 in 31 appearances bettered only by Derby's Inigo Idiakez.
Koumas looks set to break into the Actim top 20 as his spectacular double against Luton at Kenilworth Road has yet to be added to his overall index of 4.67.
Reading remain the team to beat. Glen Little leads the way with 6.29 points followed by Republic of Ireland new boy Kevin Doyle (6.23), two of seven Reading players in the top ten.
