and I want to create something new for the future. You can be inspired by the past, but you shouldn’t live in the past and you shouldn’t live with the present. Sometimes I’m wrong and I am just a dreamer but this kind of idea will help to keep me alive.
How much would you relish the opportunity to work with Sir Alex Ferguson again?
He is the best I have ever worked with and he has many years left at United. But if I come back [to Old Trafford] it would be as number one. I played under some great managers in my career including Platini, Beckenbauer and Guy Roux at Auxerre. But for me Sir Alex is the best. Guy Roux worked with me at the start of my career from the age of 15 to 22, so of course I learnt a lot from him. But as a mature player, Sir Alex was the one who taught me the most.
