Interview with him in The Times today. He talks about the lesson he learned from last summer when he turned up to United unfit, goes on to say that he and Adnan took one of United's fitness coaches with them on their summer holiday to Dubai, says it was their own decision too, not forced on them. Both players looked in great shape against Club America. Great to see.
Hopefully can stay fit. Seems to have made an effort during the off season to get fit, hopefully rewarded for that work. Think we saw at times last season what he can do when fit. There were some games he played though where maybe he was still feeling a problem. That game he played at Chelsea, end of last season, showed what he can do.
That run before that glorious Memphis chance was something else. Quickest i've seen him run in a United shirt, clearly wasn't right last season. Some issues defensively tonight, they had a lot of joy down his side, has the pace to get back though when caught upfield unlike Evra later in his United career.
My man of the match to be honest. Lot of players had very good 2nd half but he had a great 90 yet again. Up and down like a yo-yo. Strong in the tackle, seemed to come out on top in most duels. Improving in final 3rd now too, looking to pick out players rather than just knock it in. Noticed that in England game the other night too.
