"How many football players can say they are part of their biggest dream? I am not stupid. I can see I could use some more games somewhere but right now I am helping this club as much as I can."

Anders happy at United

ever because of familiar things, and family and so on. It is a weird situation. In other years, I have played more but not felt as good as I do right now. 

"It is a very weird position to be in. It is new stuff. For me personally in this situation, I have to try and be objective, not subjective. It would be easy to get frustrated at not playing. I have to try and rise above myself and see it from the club's perspective and see how much pressure we have been under as a club. Then it is easier for me to understand why things are the way they are. I would obviously like to think that in periods where we are winning all the games, there would be more game time for me.

"For me it is all about being a happy human being. I am that now at Manchester United. I am happy to be part of this big club. I enjoy the atmosphere we have in the locker room. It is my club since I was a small kid. This is my dream. The question is do I have to compromise that dream and seek elsewhere? Right now, the decision is to stay here and help the club, that is the most important thing.

"The other night I came home after we lost to Tottenham. My wife asked: 'Why are you so angry?'. I said it was because we had just lost. She said: 'But you didn't play'. I said: 'This is my club. We are losing.' If I was sitting watching the games on the couch, I would be very disappointed. That is how it is. It is both a praise and a curse. When you say it like that, you have to remember how lucky you are. How many football players can say they are part of their biggest dream? I am not stupid. I can see I could use some more games somewhere but right now I am helping this club as much as I can."

United have the perfect opportunity to respond to the FA Cup exit by taking a step closer to a Wembley final in the Capital One Cup at
