Every footballer wants to play forever. And if you are going to keep on playing - to enjoy it to the full - you want to win games, and as a result, trophies.
There's never been completion in my football career because I've always been striving for that next thing.
I do not wish to hide my origins, nor do I seek to make it a subject of conversation. I am what I am.
Celebrity culture, it's everywhere, isn't it? It's reality TV, Big Brother. I didn't become a footballer to be famous, I became a footballer to be successful. I didn't want to be famous. Now people want to be famous. Why? Why would you want people following you about all day?
Too much money at a young age, it just takes your eye off the ball. And you're not as hungry as players used to be. You think you've made it before you've done anything.
As players, you just play for the club. I love Man United, I'm going to play for Man United, and that's what my focus is on.
I am proud of my black roots and of the black blood that runs in my veins.
I have always considered myself to be very fortunate. To play for the biggest club in the world, which also happens to be the team I supported as a boy, means I have never had to consider changing away from Manchester United.
I like to let my football do the talking, I'm respectful of other good teams such as Arsenal.
When you lose a game or don't play well you can't wait for the next one, because it soon disappears, the disappointment.
If I feel I'm not influencing games, not scoring goals or making goals, then that's the time I'd pack it in.
As a footballer I can't imagine life without the use of one of my legs... Sadly this is exactly what happens to thousands of children every year when they accidentally step on a landmine.
I had an early taste of fame. I was 20, going out with TV presenter Dani Behr and we'd have paparazzi chasing us. I'm not comfortable being photographed, though I accept it is part of the job. I had to ask myself, 'What comes first, being a celebrity or footballer?'
Where does it stop? You get offered money for your wedding, then for your kids, new houses, holidays... We earn enough from football and sponsorships, why do you need any more?
Football is easy when things are going well, but when its not, it becomes the biggest test.
