Obertan can't believe Man Utd fans already singing his name

Manchester United winger Gabriel Obertan can't believe the Old Trafford support are already singing his name.

The young Frenchman has featured twice for the first team - impressing in both instances.

"I'm very proud of that," he told manutd.com of the fans' reception. "It gives you a huge push when you are playing and you hear the supporters singing your name. It's like you have other forces behind you.

"It's also made me feel very welcome here. If I hear the fans singing my name I want to give them something back by playing well and working hard for them."
