Since joining DC United from childhood club Everton in June, Manchester United and England’s record
scorer has scored 14 objectives and guided his new side from the base of the Eastern Conference to the
Addressing BBC Sport’s Natalie Pirks for Football Focus, the 33-year-old talked about his recently
discovered obscurity, being the changing area DJ, and the accessibility of a decent old some tea.
I knew it was an extreme association, a physical alliance, however I think the capacity of the groups in
the class and capacity of individual players is significantly higher than possibly I thought when I originally came.
A portion of the football that gets played is great and it is an aggressive group. I think absolutely over
the most recent couple of weeks with play-off spots up for snatches, it has extremely aggressive.
It is somewhat extraordinary and it isn’t what individuals are utilized to back home yet it isn’t loose.
There is strain to perform and for me to turn out and perform, and I am getting a charge out of that
weight, playing the recreations and helping us get to the play-offs and ideally acquiring some more
achievement the following couple of weeks for the group.
I am truly getting a charge out of it and I think the group are playing admirably, creating extraordinary
football, so ideally that proceeds.
It is more unwinding for us as a family. In the event that you need to go to the general store or fly out
and get an espresso at that point it’s very simple to do.
Now and again in England it could be somewhat troublesome yet here not such a significant number of
remember you, or they are extremely deferential when they see you, so that is unquestionably a major
contrast. Soccer isn’t the greatest game here at the moment, they have their different games, NFL, ball,
which everybody watches here.
To stroll around and have more space and time to appreciate with your family was something somewhat
extraordinary to what I’m utilized to. Clearly you can do similar things back in England, I’m not saying life was horrendous there, but rather football is the fundamental game back home.
Everybody knows you and you do need to design things more, you can’t be unconstrained and lift the
children up from school and go and do whatever the children need to do.
I am clearly baffled with the manner in which it finished at Everton yet it has opened up another part for
me here and I’m truly getting a charge out of it. I have constantly cherished playing. Clearly you have
minutes in your profession which are superior to anything different minutes yet it doesn’t mean you
don’t care for playing or you abhor playing.
Obviously you abhor it when you don’t win. The time at Everton last season was somewhat baffling now
and again, unique chiefs, playing diverse positions. In any case, that is a piece of football and at times
you need to experience the more troublesome minutes to get the incredible minutes.
