Antonio Valencia has confessed his pride after being handed the No7 shirt at United.
The 2012 Reds' Player of the Year has been rewarded with the famous number vacated by Michael Owen although he denied suggestions that he had requested the change.
"This is a shirt with a lot of responsibility and a lot of big players have worn it," he told MUTV. "I just hope I can deliver and play the same way as the ones before because a lot of great players have worn the jersey."
When asked if it was his idea, he replied: "No, no. It isn't how it came about. The jersey was just given [to me]. I didn't ask for it but I will take a great responsibility in wearing it and will try to do my best."
Despite sweeping the boards at the end-of-season awards, the former Wigan winger is still looking to improve and would prefer collective glory to any personal accolades.
"I want to win everything," he asserted. "The league and all the trophies. The maximum possible. This is the objective and mentality of every single player. We want to win everything playing for this club and we will try to do it.
"My objective is always to try and improve and the most important thing is to try and win the league."
