“We’ve achieved a lot since my dear Sir Alex Ferguson brought me to this club.”

“I took incredible pride every time I pulled on this shirt to lead the team, to represent this institution, the biggest club in the world, was an honour only bestows upon a few lucky footballers.”

“It’s been an unforgettable and successful period since I came here.”
