“He can become a big influence on our midfield. You will have to be patient with him. You cannot expect miracles from him straight away just because there is a big price tag attached. That’s not the lads fault. It is just the way football has gone. That’s between the two clubs and shouldn’t be allowed to put pressure on him. Given the time and the chance to develop, he can become a very good player. We think he can achieve very good things. It is a great signing for United and I am very pleased. I am sure the fans will take to him. He reminds me of Ruben Baraja, who played for Valencia against us in the Champions League a few times. That’s exactly how Ander makes the game look. He is very similar. He will be good for United, I am sure.”
