Do you ever think about when it will all end? In five years’ time it’s going to be difficult to carry on playing at the very top level. Do you worry about that?
No. I think that Manchester United will be my last club. I don’t want to be a player who leaves a big club to play in the lower divisions. I would prefer to play with my friends in the street.
When you stop playing, will you stay in football?
If I feel I’ve got something to give to football – something else, something new, a new tactic – I will continue. I want to be a creator. When I do something it is to create something. I don’t want to be like any other manager. They are all different and they have all given something to football. Not all, a few. I want to be like them when they started. If it’s to give something new, then yes, I want to be a manager. I’m talking about management, but I’m only 30 years old and at the moment I am very happy as a player.
