The £27.5m signing performed poorly in his first season at Old Trafford, but has made real strides this year after being motivated to improve by new manager van Gaal.
“He told me: ‘Prove to me you can play in the team’. Of course I was worried when I saw all the new players coming in. But I have qualities as well,” the Belgian midfielder explained.
“I know I can play for United so I work hard. I show myself and I prove to the manager I can play.
“I have total respect for the manager because of everything he has achieved.
“It is a real honour to play for a manager like him. I am learning every day and becoming a better player.”
