He told MyDaily: “I am so happy just to be playing again. There were no problems with my ankle so I am very satisfied.
“My ankle has recovered perfectly but I haven’t trained for a while so I need more time.
“It’s good for me to be returning at a time when there are many fixtures. I should get many opportunities to play.
“However, you have to ask the coach when I will return. It’s not my decision. He will check my condition in training.
“I expect to return to action stronger than before.
“Everyone has been playing well and doing their jobs well- not only the starting eleven but the whole squad. The main reason that Manchester United are first is that the players put the needs of the team first.”
