watching that kind of game. English football is the best and most exciting league in the world and, of course, I love watching United. I also enjoy the Spanish and German leagues, but in England the atmosphere is special. It’s just my opinion but I think it is also the opinion of millions of other people.
Finally, Eric, you described your relationship with the United fans as being ‘like a love story.’ Do you still feel that whenever you come back to Old Trafford?
Yes, of course. The fans watch lots of games and see many players year after year and perhaps they might have forgotten me. But I’m so glad that they haven’t. I would understand if one day they did forget me, but I love them and the fact that they haven’t. It makes me feel like I am still on the pitch and still at the club.
