The 31-year-old spent a whole year at Old Trafford scoring five goals and one assist in 23 appearances across competitions.

He also wrote his name on the hall of fame at Old Trafford after becoming only the second player in the history of the club to score in each of his first four competitive starts for the Red Devils.
