Today I am writing to you between two special days. The first was on Saturday, when we beat Fulham and enjoyed a great game. On a personal level I enjoyed myself, felt good and I felt as though the crowd at Old Trafford did the same. After the game I was told that I had reached both 50 goals and 50 assists in the Premier League, it’s a great stat.
Still feeling bitter from drawing against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford, we’re already focused on our game against Young Boys. Obviously I would have liked to have been able to say something else, believe me, but the only way to get over a disappointment is to keep moving forward and in our case our next chance to do so is in a matter of hours. Tomorrow we have a key game for moving towards our objective of progressing in the Champions League.
International football has finished and this week we get back to our day-to-day routine to focus on our next game and train with the team. For me, it is a wonderful routine because I am lucky enough to to be able to dedicate my time to something that I’m so passionate.
We arrive at the final international break of the year after a week filled with many emotions. Unfortunately, they have been contrasting ones. If after Turin we returned home happy and positive, after the Manchester derby we obviously felt the complete opposite.
