He said Manchester United supporters did not show him the love that he expected on his second return to the club.
When I left Manchester, I was young. And when you're young, you want to prove something. I came to Juve, to a fairly young Italian club, it was a big test for me. But I immediately saw the love of the supporters. I saw the love of the club. I really liked how they worked and learned a lot. I went back to Manchester because I hadn't finished my work there. I said to myself, I really want to play with the A's [the first team]'. I did it and it was a goal achieved for me. We have already won, not the Premier League, but titles that Manchester have not won for a long time. And I came back to Juve, why? Because it's really the club that helped me push myself.
And really the love from the fans, the love from the club that I get, I didn't get that in Manchester. I was quite surprised when I came back to England, already with the transfer I was given a label. It was quite sad. But it's two clubs that I really love, that made me grow and I can only say thank you to these two clubs. Maybe I could have gone to other clubs, but it was my heart that chose those clubs and I often follow my heart.
