to handle that and hopefully in the end we will be champions again.
Has this season been one of mixed emotions for you given your chances have been limited?
Every time I’ve played I think I have done well and I’m ready and waiting whenever the boss gives me a chance to show my quality and deliver. I want to do as much as I can for the team to help us win the title.
How do you keep yourself motivated when you’re not playing?
It’s just about being ready. We have a big squad and you know sometimes you’re not going to play. It’s sad and it’s painful but you need to be strong and be prepared for when your team-mates need your help. We are a team and we want to win together.
And having a variety of top strikers can only be a good thing in the run-in…
Absolutely. Sometimes you rotate the strikers to suit different teams you’re playing. It’s my job and the other strikers’ jobs to be ready to do your best when the chance arises.
Danny Welbeck has certainly been a great addition to that attacking group…
I’m particularly happy to see how well Danny has done. I remember him coming through the ranks and you could see then he had great quality. His loan spell at Sunderland helped him a lot and he is one for the future for both United and England.
Do you still feel you have an important part to play between now and May?
Yes, of course. There are a lot of games coming up which present different challenges and I’m training very hard to make sure I’m ready when the moment comes.
