“I just came back home, it was like I didn’t really leave – I just went on holiday! [laughs]. It was a great feeling to come back home.
“It was great to come back, to feel the air of Manchester. That has never changed.”
Meanwhile, former Red Devils midfielder Juan Sebastian Veron reckons United are still searching for answers in the post Sir Alex Ferguson era.
He said: “The departure of Ferguson had a really bad impact on them.
“They have not been able to find their way yet, having tried some changes already. But they are a big club so hopefully they will find their [football] idea in the future.
“Mourinho is a great manager. For me, he really is.
“Maybe he could be the right one but after all Ferguson achieved at the club, he is going to need some time in order to implement his [football] idea.”
