It is especially long in footballing terms, but when you spend 9 years at one of the best football clubs in the world, presumably time flies.
Not a bad haul at all.
Speaking to Sport 360, the former defender mused:
“I spent nine years with United and I believe I was coached by one of the best not only in sport, but in terms of management style.
“Sir Alex is the best and at United I had this chance to play under him and with some of the best players in the world.
“And it was a very good time. We won all the trophies you can win in England and in Europe and it was a successful time for me.”
