‘As I’ve said, it’s a rebuild. You had to tear the house down and you had to get players out that weren’t here in their minds.

‘We’ve got players here now who will go that extra yard, that culture I want to set. That’s the United culture. I know we’re not in the Sir Alex Ferguson era, but the players we have, they have the right mentality and they’re good personalities.

‘That, for me, is the first tick. You don’t stay here if you don’t give everything to this team. 

‘When I came in, the squad weren’t right. Of course, we are a different squad to the championship-winning one that Sir Alex had.

‘This group of players haven’t had that experience of winning. But that will come in the next few years, definitely. That’s what we’re working for and that’s why those players are here.’
