Despite his frustrations, it is clear he will be ready should Sir Alex Ferguson decide to call on him for Sunday's trip to Stoke.
"All the players in the world want to start every single game," he said.
"I am happy to be at this club.
"Of course I would love to start more often but I will keep the same attitude.
"When the gaffer wants me on the bench or the starting line-up I will do my best. My attitude is going to be very good because I want to respect the club, my team-mates and the coach."
