But for now, there is no time to enjoy the trophies. You just think about each game.[LNB]"We have a great group of players and I think we can do big things.[LNB]"I enjoy everything about United and I have learnt a lot since I joined.[LNB]"But it is not good to think about what you did in the past. You need to think about the future - that is the mentality of this team. That is how you win trophies."[LNB]
