Before anything else, I want to thank you all for your birthday messages. Waking up in the team hotel and receiving them all is something that’s incredible. I feel very fortunate for all of the care that you have shown me and I wanted to thank you all for that.
We are now in what could be the final four weeks of the season and every game is key. You have to mix your desire with responsibility, but you always have to be fully motivated. Tomorrow we have the second leg of the quarter finals of the Champions League and we are travelling to Barcelona with that motivation. Being 0-1 behind isn’t a good scoreline, but we are Manchester United and when you wear this shirt anything is possible.
Today I am writing this at the start of a very special week for everyone involved. All eyes are on Wednesday. The quarter-final stage of the Champions League against Barcelona is, without any doubt, a huge challenge that we have ahead of us, but we are heading into it with excitement and motivation.
This Monday signals the start of April, one of my favourite months of the year which promises a lot of emotions. We have seven games… and what seven games they are. Take a look at our opponents and you will see that we have a series of big challenges ahead of us without much time to rest. Starting after this Monday, when we must first pay Wolves a visit at their ground. We come into that game after beating Watford, an important result after finishing the international break.
