The Dutchman takes his lead from skipper Nemanja Vidic.
"I always want to play aggressively," he told Inside United. "I try to - how do you say? - play strong. I like to play hard. It's my game.
"I think you can see when you look at 'Vida' that he's the same. He is a monster on the field. I like that. If I see that, I can learn from him. It's nice to play with these kinds of defenders here."
