I'm a very stubborn person. I think it has helped me over my career. I'm sure it has hindered me at times as well, but not too many times. I know that if I set my mind to do something, even if people are saying I can't do it, I will achieve it.
Alex Ferguson is the best manager I've ever had at this level. Well, he's the only manager I've actually had at this level. But he's the best manager I've ever had.
People look at my tattoos, and the majority of them are religious images, so people think, 'Oh, he must be very religious'. I respect all religions, but I'm not a deeply religious person. But I try and live life in the right way, respecting other people.
I've played under some of the biggest and best managers and achieved almost everything in football. Of course it hurts when people question it, but I've come to the end of my career and can look back and say I've achieved everything with every club that I've played for.
Nothing amazes me anymore.
Two of my boys are Manchester United fans; one is an Arsenal fan. Whenever there is a game I can take the boys to, I love taking them.
People just assume, over the years, that soccer players are not too intelligent. As with most assumptions, they're wrong.
I remember how inspiring it was to meet players like Bobby Charlton or Bryan Robson when I was a kid. I still remember Clive Allen showing up when I received a trophy for my Sunday league team.
There's room for boys' and girls' football in the world-that's what I believe.
Some men over-tweeze their eyebrows, and it's just too perfect. Men are meant to have kind of a bushy brow. Too much aftershave is also off-putting; it's one of my pet hates.
The buzz is still with me. I get goose bumps.
Every situation has changed me as a person.
I have got this obsessive compulsive disorder where I have to have everything in a straight line, or everything has to be in pairs.
Tom Cruise, he's a lot more famous than me.
That was my way of getting through difficult times of low confidence - hard work.
Kids can have great passion and great ability but if you have the facilities for your particular sport that can give you the inspiration to become a sportsman.
I'm a strong person, I'm a strong family man, I'm a strong husband and a strong father.
As a footballer, you always want to test yourself against the best.
I always wanted kids I could take to work, and for them to experience the things I experience. So, having three boys as a footballer was a dream.
I just want people to see me as a hard-working footballer and someone who is passionate about the game.
