"They know the position I'm in because they realise now the English league can just buy foreigners in," Eagles told the Lancashire Telegraph of his ex-United colleagues.

"When they were coming through it was completely different, it was just English lads that really made Manchester United.

"But they respect me for playing.

"I know a lot of boys who've played for Arsenal and Chelsea who are in the same position as me; they're just as good to play for their sides, it's just the circumstances now of bringing foreigners in.

"But it's just the way it is. I'm here now and I want to concentrate on playing for Burnley."
