'Then you learn a lot when you go through tough times and think about who can we build this team around, and who we think is going to take the next step because we need to go to the next level'.
"They have done incredible work but the fans have given them time".
"(But) the right person is at the wheel.
After the confirming Ander Herrera will depart on a free transfer at the end of the season, United revealed club captain Antonio Valencia has been relased after a decade at the club.
Assistant manager Mike Phelan signed a three-year deal on Friday and goalkeeping coach Emilio Alvarez has been with the club since Jose Mourinho arrived in 2016. We were positive. We won games. "It shows how big the club is".
However, Herrera, who announced at the weekend he will leave Old Trafford when his contract expires in the summer, pleaded with the club's fans - and he now counts himself as one - to stay patient in the next few months and years.
"We are in a league with loads of very good teams and, to be at our top [level], we need to be 100 per cent focused".
"I have won some trophies but the league is something I wanted to win", Herrera said.
"This is the greatest and biggest club in England and that was one of my dreams".
Many Manchester United fans have plenty of belief in Tuanzebe and frankly are a little disappointed he wasn't more involved given the failings of the defence this season.
"The whole group gelled together and I enjoyed winning but I know that football is hard".
"I have just tried to give my best always".
"You are not going to hear one bad word about anyone because they don't deserve it and I'm not like that".
