“And that’s the passion we want and, of course, the history we have. We can look back 10 years or 20 years and you look back at the great players we have.
“For me, going forward, since Sir Alex left we’ve been averaging fifth. Last season we got third, which was a big step forward.
“Everyone saw the development in the team throughout the season, Bruno [Fernandes] coming in, Harry [Maguire] being captain and really showing leadership skills on and off the pitch. Aaron [Wan-Bissaka] was good.
“And we want want to take a step forward and we can go into the new season with confidence, but we’re looking to give the group a boost and we’re working on it.
“Of course, we’ve done some business with Donny, I’m very happy and delighted to get him in. An exceptional, smashing lad that’ll give us something. I can’t say anything about other clubs’ players out of respect for them, I can’t speculate.”
