"If you look at club now, United is in transition. New players coming in, we (United) have changed managers, with first David Moyes and now Louis van Gaal and also the directors last year when David Gill left (and Ed Woodward was promoted).
"Hopefully this year is important for them and the players who have been waiting for a chance can step up. The players are ready for their chance.
"The manager knows what he wants from them and that is good. I hope they do well. There is new energy and the club needs positive energy, the players will be fighting for their place in the team. I'm sure it will be much better than last season."
