The Argentine star Sergio Romero has labelled his final campaign at Manchester United a ‘strange year’ as the player spent some time training alone and failed to feature in a single match for the senior team.

Romero spent six years at the club and generally impressed whenever Sergio got a chance but was David De Gea’s understudy during his time in England.

He fell to the third choice over the last season thanks to the emergence of youngster Dean Henderson and failed to add to the 61 matches he had made for the Red Devils in all competitions.

Now having joined Venezia after his United deal expires, the South American has looked back on a tough period and is aiming to show he can still compete at the high level.

‘It was a strange year for me, but I trained all year at Manchester United,’ Sergio told a press conference. ‘Some days I was training by myself, because the squad was preparing the game.

‘I feel good, I worked in Argentina too and want to prove I’m the same Sergio who was at Sampdoria and then Manchester.’
