Stam backs RvP

Stam is eagerly awaiting the chance to return to Old Trafford this summer and is certain to receive a warm welcome from the supporters who still chant his name years after his departure to Lazio.

"I loved playing at United," he admitted. "Everybody knows the past and I'm not going to talk about it anymore but I love the fans and they always gave me a great feeling and a good reception.

"It's going to be great coming back and maybe they can sing that song again for me."
