I have always considered myself to be very fortunate. To play for the biggest club in the world, which also happens to be the team I supported as a boy, means I have never had to consider changing away from Manchester United.
“I remember when I got called for my first training with Real Madrid’s first team. I went there two hours earlier to impress my coach, but when I got there Cristiano Ronaldo was already out on the pitch training.”
it’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.
“When you start supporting a football club, you don’t support it because of the trophies, or a player, or history. You support it because you found yourself somewhere there, you found a place where you completely belong.”
