‘Luke Shaw’s playing centre-back instead of him.

‘That’s like me going back after the , playing well, everyone saying he’s done really well, and Patrice Evra is playing centre-back.

‘I’d want to strangle Patrice! I would’ve smashed Patrice in training to make sure he’s not available, and I’d be going to the manager and saying, ‘are you taking the piss out of me, boss?’. I’d have walked straight into the manager’s office and said, ‘you’re disrespecting me’.

‘Harry Maguire’s got to move. I think he stays because of the games and they can’t get someone else in. He plays in the cup games.’
