"It is incredible to have deserted that stamp. It is an incredible heritage to have cleared out. I exited United with extraordinary recollections. It was a fruitful time for the club and it was awesome for me. 

"I cherished it there. I adored working with the players yet it was the opportune time for me to proceed onward and I believe I have surely settled on the correct choice in coming here."
