Manchester United striker John Cofie is happy with his loan move to Royal Antwerp.

Cofie's priority is playing football every week.

He told The National: "I knew that a lot of former United players had been to Antwerp so I spoke to people like Jonny Evans and Darron Gibson. Then I spoke to my family. We thought it would be a good move for me to be playing competitive football regularly.

"It's better than reserve-team football because it's like a step up from boys to men's football. You play in front of real crowds - Antwerp get around 7,000 for most home games and you are lucky to get 700 at reserve level."
