“I admire someone who has the mind to do that. Very slowly he is working his way away from what people thought of him 18 months ago.
“There is no doubt in my mind that this fella has a strong mind and to play for Manchester United you need a strong mind.
“You don’t see him in the newspapers defending himself or trying to shift the blame elsewhere. He just gets on with it. United players are like that.
“They just get on with it. Can you remember any United player at a high level that ever complained?
“I have racked my brains and cannot think of anyone. David is like that. He just gets on with it."
"I admire the fella. I cannot remember anyone coming into Manchester United and being criticised the way he was criticised. He was ridiculed every day."
