Regardless of whether it is playing for your school team or playing for Manchester United, winning is great.
I might be too emotional to be a manager. You love your players, don't you? And I'm not sure I could leave them out. I know how it feels.
I know, if I am playing well, I can be as good as anyone, and I want to show people who write you off and forget about you.
I understand football. I have always been a good footballer, and that gets overlooked by most people.
The decisions I've made have not always been the most popular, but when I look back, I want to know I've played for good football teams.

You can take a sidewards step in the Premier League, go to a team in the Championship or come to a team in League One.

You've got to make sure every decision you make is right for you as a person. If you think you can go to a better club than the one you're at, then, regardless of what anyone says, you should go.
