He told manutd.com: "In every season, after a break, you will have surprises. 

"We’re looking forward, we’re so curious: who is it this season, the surprise who can contribute to our team?

"Like last year, Kobbie Mainoo, Alejandro Garnacho coming up and playing a big role. They are the two goalscorers in the (FA Cup) final.

"Today, we started (training), but which player is there who can do the same?"
