looking forward to it. We’ve lacked a bit of creativity and imagination in the final third of the pitch and I really hope Juan can deliver quickly for us.
People have spoken about how excited they are at seeing him link up with the likes of Wayne, Robin and Adnan…
I want to build an exciting team. That’s always the way I’ve wanted my football to be played and I’ve not known it any other way. I want to win and give the supporters something to shout about because I’ve not done that often enough. What I will say is this is the first of many more to come in time. I’m looking forward to Juan being the start of it.
Do you think Juan will relish the pressure that comes with being the record signing at a club of this magnitude?
I think when you play as well as he can then he can handle the ball and deal with the ball. When you come to Manchester United you are tested a little bit – the players will be the first ones to test him when we get him training because they’ll want to see what he can bring. I’m sure they’ll make him aware of what we stand for and what the traditions there are here. He’s a Spanish international and we’ve signed him up for a long time now. Hopefully we’ll get him playing and showing exactly what he can do.
Would you like to get him playing on Tuesday night against Cardiff?
Yes because he’s not too far away from [full] fitness. I know he has missed a few games and maybe not started quite as many games as he’d have liked, but I’d like to get him involved if I can against Cardiff.
