Have you set a goals target for yourself this season?
No, I never do this. I’m just thinking about working hard, improving my game and making sure I’m ready when the manager asks me to play, whether it’s for one minute or for the full 90. If I can help the team by scoring goals, that’s great. However, what matters most is that Manchester United keep winning matches.
Taking the league title for the 19th time last season was a huge achievement for the club. Can this squad lift the trophy again this term?
I’m sure we can do it. We have a lot of young players who are hungry to do well, and that helps inspire the rest of the squad. Some of the older guys may have been here for many years and won a lot of trophies, but they still have a lot of desire. I think we have a good mix of youth and experience, and that will be very important for us.
Just how much are you enjoying life at United and in Manchester?
It’s unbelievable. In some ways I’m still getting used to wearing this special shirt, being around these incredible players and seeing my name on the United teamsheet... it’s amazing. Some days I wake up and I just can’t believe it. I’m living in this great country and playing for the best club in the world in the best league in the world. I’m so thankful for that.
