Is Manchester United trying to force you to leave the team?
“Yes, not only Teng Hag, but also two or three other clubs.”
, are these people at the top of the club?
“Yes, I feel betrayed. To be honest, I shouldn’t have said that. I don’t know. But I don’t care. People should hear that. I think some people don’t want me here, not only this year, but also last year. ”
I feel betrayed and I felt that some people didn’t want me here, not only this year but last year too. ”
about head coach Teng Hag
“I don’t have any respect for him because he hasn’t shown me any respect. If you don’t respect me, then I won’t respect you.”
I don’t have respect for him because he doesn’t show respect for me.If you don’t have respect for me, I’m never gonna have respect for you.
on former teammate Wayne Rooney
“I don’t know why he criticizes me so much, maybe because he’s retired and I’m still at the top level.”
“I don’t want to say I look better than him at the moment, but it’s true.”
I don’t know why he criticises me so badly. Probably because he finished his career and I’m still playing at high level.
I’m not going to say that I’m looking better than him. Which is true.
on why he returned to Manchester United last year
“I followed my heart and Sir Alex Ferguson told me:’it’s impossible for you to go to Manchester City.’ I then said, ‘all right, boss.’ ”
the stagnant status quo of Manchester United
“I think the fans should know the truth.”
“I want to do my best with the club and that’s why I chose to return to Manchester United. But now there are some things inside the club that prevent us from reaching the level of Manchester City, Liverpool and now Arsenal. In my opinion, having a club of this size should be top-notch at the competitive level, but unfortunately Manchester United did not achieve it. ”
A club with this dimension should be top of the tree in my opinion and they are not unfortunately.
