"I have been immensely proud to wear the badge of Manchester United since the first day I arrived, and I believe all United supporters recognise this", he said. These are quality players and it's easy to get them to express themselves. I've had the best manager as player and coach, to learn how he deals with people.

"First game, we'll get my principles into the boys, get them playing how we want to play as a team, work together and then let's take the results later on", he said.
