"

The only one who knows how a player performed is the player himself.

My performance improved a lot after coming to Italy because I didn't know the language and didn't know what was being said about me in the papers. Even after I've learnt Italian now I've kept to not reading them; it seriously helps."

"

The easy decision was to stay at Man Utd. I would've been behind Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof, but I'm confident to still play a fair number of matches just like my previous seasons. And then Roma came knocking with the opportunity to experience another culture, the promise to grow new elements to my game.

At the end of this adventure I will have added dimensions that I won't have had I not leave United."

"

Sometimes you think about being a man first of all.

My wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. It's better for her to get the support and treatment she needs at Cagliari, where she's from, so when the interest came it was no brainer. It's going to be a challenge from what I'm used to at Inter or Roma for sure but we do have beautiful talents in this team—Marco Rog, Nahitan Nandez, Giovanni Simeone—we can achieve something together."
