Tony Strudwick has been given the role of the head of athletic development at Manchester United. He will oversee the athletic development of all players, working with Louis van Gaal for the first team right through to Paul McGuinness in the Academy.
"I am thoroughly enjoying this new role. With increased importance on developing players for the future, the athletic component becomes critical in their advancement and to have the chance to work with the younger players, who are in the early stages of their career, as well as the first team, will give a continuity of progression which is critical to their future success."

"It (Manchester United vs West Ham United) was a special day for David de Gea, who has reached 100 Premier League games. He is one of the most skilled goalkeepers I’ve ever seen so I know you will play many more than 100, my friend."

"It was probably the right decision. I saw the West Ham player making a counter-attack and I tried to break up the play, but I just misjudged it. I didn’t absolutely volley the lad. I tried to trip him up and, to be fair to him, he got further away from me and that’s why my leg is straighter than it should have been. As he pushed the ball away, my leg straightened out and that is obviously why the referee deemed it as a red card."
"Of course I did (apologised). I think everyone knew (I was in the wrong). It’s always tough against 11 men when you are a man down, especially when they are throwing a lot of balls into the box as West Ham were doing, so I am grateful that we held out."

"It was a tough debut, I would say. Obviously, we went down to 10 men and it’s never easy but we all fought hard and showed how much we wanted these three points. It means a lot to us. Overall, I’m really pleased with how my debut went but the main thing, for me, was to get the win."

"It’s an okay stat! I would like to increase it a bit more - you always want to do better and improve, but if you play 81 games and score 50 goals it’s a good rate."

"I thought we played really well in the first half but in the second it was a completely different game because of the red card. At times it was a bit nerve-wracking but we did ever so well and everyone fought really hard."

"It was a bit frustrating to concede a goal when we did because in that period in the game the only way they looked like scoring was from a set-piece and it happened, just before half-time. That was a bad moment for us but I think we did really in the end to win this game. For everyone involved with Manchester United I think this is about more than just the three points."

Louis van Gaal:
"He played very well. I could have imagined a performance like this before the match because he’s a very good player. Mostly, players like this have good debuts. I’m very pleased for him that we won, because he played very well and his goal-saving header in the second half was fantastic. He was also very good with the ball at his feet."
Robin van Persie:
"I know how hard it is to make your debut. I made mine in Holland for Feyenoord and he made his for Manchester United in front of 75,000 people, at home, in a difficult period. He did really well on the ball. His decision-making was great and defensively he stood up well. It was great for him."
Rafael da Silva:
"He played very well, he played some fantastic football and everyone is really pleased with him. He should keep working hard because he has a big future."
