“I don’t wish I’d stuck around at all. A club like United is cutthroat, win at all costs, whereas here, you know you’re not going to win every game but the players we’ve got bottle and don’t give anyone a second breath. There is more pressure at United, without a doubt. Even if we drew there, it was the end of the world. I wouldn’t go back. I’m having more fun, that’s a huge part of football. It’s tough at United and in training it’s very serious. There is more of a relaxed atmosphere here. It’s up to me to show United what they’re missing.”
Missing you, Ben.
