What has been the happiest moment of your career? @fran_ramirez
Now. I am having a good time and enjoying football.

What is the most important goal you have scored or the one you enjoyed the most? @roberth3001
The goal against Blackburn two seasons ago [April 2012].

What do you consider to be the best match you have played for United? @fernandomanzof
Against Bayern Munich at Old Trafford in the Champions League [April 2010]. I think I played a great match; I wanted to play well in that game.

What is your biggest aspiration as a footballer, for United or Ecuador? @Juan_jahir
With United, the nicest thing would be winning the Champions League.

What does it feel like being a role model and the pride of a country? @ArQuItEcTo_Ec
It’s a responsibility to live life in a correct and orderly way.

Which countries would you like to face in the World Cup group stage? @SanchezJoselo
Well, I think we will have two difficult opponents. I reckon we will face Holland, England or Spain.

Which other Ecuadorian player do you think could succeed in the Premier League? @Carlouis82
I would say Jefferson Montero because he is an intelligent player and someone who is improving his football daily.

Which player do you admire in today’s football? @1016768
Ryan Giggs. When I arrived here, I quickly realised he is a gifted man on and off the pitch.
