But when I was like 18 and 19 – yeah, I worked hard, everybody has to work hard – I was playing for one of if not the biggest teams in the world. I made my debut for Holland at 19, so I didn’t really know the other side of football – and the other side of how hard it could be. By me saying this I mean with the big injury like this. I never seen it coming. I don’t think anyone sees an ACL injury coming. But I developed to get my mind stronger. I developed to, yeah, be mentally stronger and to just stay positive because you just have to keep going. Things happen in life, it’s the way you react. So, this is my mindset and my mentality, and the club have helped me very well, my physio in Holland has helped me very well to be back and fit and I feel very good and strong

I’ve been to college with Axel (Tuanzebe), with Marcus, Scott McTominay, with all these all these players. We’ve been to college altogether for two years. I had to wear black boots; we were obligated to wear black boots by Brian McClair when I was in the Under-18s. We were obligated not to wear hand gloves, even in the winter! No under armour. And then when I came to the under-21s, I had Warren Joyce and all these things so, like, Manchester definitely feels like home because I came in 2014, now it’s 2020. It’s six years. They gave me my professional career, you know? My first professional match in football was for Manchester United and they developed me
