“It’s all of us, not just myself. I know I can score more goals,” he told MUTV. 

“The manager wants more players in the box, which is where you score goals.”

 “For us, the level of detail which he’s talking about is so easy to understand. All his ideas can come at once, and we can take them on board.”

He added: “Whenever we’ve got a new manager, there’s a lot of new ideas and a lot of things we have to take on board, in terms of the ideas the manager wants.

“Everyone’s so, so happy with the new coach in terms of the detail and the attention to the work we’re doing, and everyone’s so fit now, and we can get fitter. I can get fitter and the whole team can, which is obviously a benefit for the future as well.”

Man United will face Crystal Palace in their next pre-season friendly at the Melbourne Cricket ground on Tuesday.
