"First of all, any team that wins the championship and a Premier League deserve it and they deserve credit," he said. 

"It's a hard league to win, so well done to Jurgen (Klopp) and his players. 

"For me, every time you see anyone else lift the trophy it hurts. I reckon that's the feeling everyone associated with Man United - all players, staff and supporters.

"Of course we want to get back to winning ways and that's our challenge."
