    "Do I have regrets about leaving United? Well, I wish I had listened to Louis van Gaal during the first three games and played the way he wanted me to play, rather than playing silly passes at 0-0 in an attempt to win the game! But seriously, I do look back with a little bit of regret because I actually thought I played really well for six months under Moyes and Ryan Giggs. I really surprised myself, so maybe I was due a drop-off at some point, and that perhaps came at the start of the following season. But to be honest, I don't think I was ever in van Gaal's plans in the first place. I probably surprised him in preseason, and that enabled me to stay when a lot of other players left, but ultimately, I couldn't stay and not play. I would have been a bit-part player. That's what I was for six months, and it was really getting to me. It wasn't a case of me being patient. I just couldn't see a way of out it. I needed a new challenge. I was seen as a voice around the place, a good guy and all that, but I just felt that I had a lot more football in me, and I wanted to get out and give myself a chance to play. It was nothing personal. I just felt the time was right to start a new challenge."


    "Lots of players who left under van Gaal should still be there, in my view. That's not me having a go at anyone, but the day Danny Welbeck was sold to Arsenal was a sad day. He is what a Manchester United player should be about - a local lad, young, great player, team player, somebody who sacrificed himself for the greater good of the team, loved by his teammates. He was on the brink of becoming a top, top player and he would have been a top player for United."
