We asked you to suggest questions for young United defender / midfielder Corry Evans, through an exclusive competition on ManUtd.com. One entrant - Laurence York - wins a shirt signed by Corry; congratulations Laurence, we'll send you your prize in due course.
Here's the resulting interview with Corry, as conducted by Gemma Thompson.
You made your first senior appearance for United in Philadelphia. How was it for you? - Heather Jackson
It was really exciting and pleasing to get on the pitch, especially in such a good atmosphere. I was determined to put in a good performance to put me in the frame for future matches. Playing for United’s first team is something I’ve dreamed of since I was a kid. I’ve supported the club all my life so the opportunity to get on and play, even if it was just a pre-season game, was a special and proud moment for myself and my family.
You played under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last season and now under Sir Alex. How do they compare? - Peter Dune
They’re quite similar in the sense they encourage you to go out and express yourself and play the United way which is flowing, attacking football. Ole’s learned his trade under Sir Alex and it’s great that he’s coaching us in the club’s traditional style.
For the benefit of fans who’ve not seen you in the reserves, what sort of a player are you? What are your strengths? - Nicholas Gerver
I think my strengths are probably my reading of the game and my positional sense. Over the past year or so I’ve been playing as a centre-back but I’m really a midfielder, so naturally I get compared to defensive midfielders. I suppose that does suit the style in which I play. But I also love to get forward, get in the box and score goals.
What are your goals for the forthcoming season - and could they involve going out on loan? - Yvonne Turner
I haven’t thought much about that to be honest. My first goal was to come back for pre-season and get on the tour which I’ve managed to do. I’m just going to take it from here and see what happens. I’m likely to get more chances to play first-team football somewhere else than I would at United because of the size and the quality of the squad here. It would probably be in my best interests to go out on loan and get some more experience, then come back next season and see where I’m at then.
Have you spoken to other players about their experiences of loan football and what they gain from time away? - James
