During his visit to Old Trafford’s treasure trove, the United veteran - on the brink of making his 1000th senior appearance in football - stopped off in the main trophy room, assessed Sir Alex’s cup collection and reflected on his illustrious career with the Reds, including the unforgettable Treble campaign.
"It was just a brilliant season, a real rollercoaster season," he says of his greatest triumph with the Reds. "We were up against probably the best team I’ve faced in the Premier League in Arsenal. To pip them to both the league and FA Cup was brilliant, and to go on and win the European Cup topped it off."
