He still has a keen eye on the Premier League and United. He offered his thoughts on the past season and whether United can challenge this time around.
"Obviously they can challenge, it's a massive club. Last year was different because of how well Manchester City did," United's former captain told BBC Sport.
"But they actually had a good season. Obviously they didn't win anything but I think they can take confidence from that and I believe they can push Manchester City next season.
"I saw that people said they weren't playing the most attractive football. But they scored a lot of goals. I think they are getting there. Hopefully it won't be long before they win the title again."
