Theo Walcott said he "feels like a kid again" after scoring his first goal since rejoining Southampton in their Premier League draw at Wolves.
Southampton are still fifth, though, and Walcott is keen to help them "achieve things this season".
"I will do a job whatever. I feel like the manager has the trust in me," he said.
"I do not [remember my last Saints league goal]. The smile on my face says it all. The club is close to my heart.
"I feel like a kid again - I feel very fit. It means a lot to play at the highest level for so long. I just love playing football."
Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl to BBC Sport: "We had chances, they had chances. We had a chance for 2-0. When you score it's tough for them to come back.
"They are a really good side with quality. It's tough to defend for 90 minutes - you cannot play without giving them chances. I'm proud of the team. That was one of our most intense performances of the season."
On Theo Walcott: "It was a good first goal for him. He's a little unhappy he didn't make the second one and that he couldn't be the match-winner. The way he works for the team is amazing. As a number 10 or a striker you can trust him.
"He's an experienced guy who comes back to the club where he grew up. It means something for him. Maybe that's why he invests so much. You know you have to do that in our team."
Wolves boss Nuno to BBC Sport: "It was a good game. Both teams played with high tempo.
"They have very good players and a very good manager. We matched them. We finished the game on the front foot. I'm very proud of the reaction to the goal."
On whether there was a foul in the build-up to Southampton's goal: "I think so. After that it was about reacting to that incident, trying to get our mind off the referee's decision and focus on the game. The boys did that. It was a strong reaction. We finished the game well, creating chances. Let's go again."
On fans coming back: "We all wish it was tomorrow. We have enormous desire to have the fans back. It's all about them. Let's try our best to bring them back."
