"I had to wait a long time to be a champion but it tastes lovely. I feel like I’m floating on a cloud."

RvP: My dream season

header and then we launch a counter-attack. I’m not a player who only thinks about scoring goals – I want to give football more than that. Football has so much more to offer than just goals.

You’ve scored a lot of goals this season and a lot of goals at Old Trafford, but only one down at the Stretford End...
I know! But I don’t know why. I’ve also scored quite a few goals in the second half at Old Trafford, but in those games it’s just so happened that we’d changed ends and we were attacking the Stretford End in the first half. I don’t understand it. I want to score more goals there, though. In fact, I promise I will score more goals at the Stretford End. I’m aware of the statistic and it’s time to change it!

Finally, you might be a champion already but you’ve not got your hands on the trophy yet. How do you think that will feel?
This is the feeling you dream of. Everything is about lifting the trophy. There were some great pictures taken after the Aston Villa game, on the pitch and inside the dressing room, but there was one thing missing from them all: the trophy. That’s the picture that will be framed in my house: me, lifting the Barclays Premier League trophy. I can’t wait for that moment.
