to stay in the top division. You're desperate for points and know that if you lose or draw a match, it can mean you're even further away from safety. It's a real shame to see Parma struggling because they've been one of the big teams in Italy.
Does part of you wish you were at Old Trafford challenging for major honours?
Of course you'd like to be part of a team like United's, fighting for the title, the Champions League and the FA Cup. I spent a lot of time with the first team last season which was a great experience and it would be fantastic to be part of it again, week in and week out. But I needed to go out and get more experience.
Would you prefer to stay at Old Trafford and fight for a place next season or go out on loan again?
I want to be part of this United squad and become a regular member of the team. Playing alongside the likes of Rooney and Ronaldo every week is something I want to do. You always have to be confident in your own ability and I am. I really hope I can make my mark next season. Nevertheless, my main focus at the moment is to do well for Parma and help them get out of trouble.
