His style of football and coaching brings out the best in me, and I am excited by what he has told me about his plans and ambitions in Manchester.“My time at Ajax was fantastic and I will always be grateful for the trust they put in me, but now I am ready for the next challenge, and I can’t wait to join my new team-mates and play my part in bringing success to Manchester United.”
