Speaking to ESPN’s The Gab & Juls Show podcast, the 40-year-old said: “I had fun.
“I really enjoyed because when I came, everybody was against it. And then in England, they didn’t like me.
“All these haters, after three months, they started to like me, I didn’t like them anymore.
“I like people when they hate you because then they bring out the better of you. I had fun. [It] is a great competition, [an] amazing atmosphere.”
He added: “I’m happy I played for United, which I think is the best team in England,’ he said. ‘And I think it was the right choice to go to Manchester United.
“I think I came in a good moment. Because it’s easy to come to a club when the success is already there. It’s more difficult when you come and the challenge is different. And then if you manage to have a success, you’re part of the story. So the fans [were] great to me. And I really enjoyed [it]. A lot of things happened.”
