He said:

“They didn’t! And I’m not expecting them to dothat, because they gave me a three-year contract.

“They are being super supportive with me, and always gave me the feeling that three years is not the time I am going to stay here.

“I always had the feeling that I am going to stay for more time.

“They know that I’m loving it, at every level.

“I’m loving my job at Manchester United, and they know that if one day they bring the contract, I will sign it.
