The last week was really difficult for me. After picking up an injury during the Liverpool game I had to be ready for the game against Spain. I simply did not want to miss the game and at the end of the day I was very happy I made it. However we did not play well and when a team does not perform well against Spain, then there are not many chances leaving the pitch even with a draw. We lost 0-2 and our hopes for a good start were never realised. Unfortunately my condition became worse after which means that I will not play against Leeds.
I am very confident that United will go for the win as we can afford dropping any points if we want to reach the top of the table as last season. Leeds have a very strong team but at home we are very strong as well. I wish the lads all the best for the game and hope I will be ready to play against Chelsea.
