In an interview with club media after agreeing to the one-year extension, Edi expressed his total commitment to the cause and explained why he is feeling in peak condition ahead of the Europa League final next week, and the chance to lift a trophy in his first season with the club.
“I think I’m in decent form and I feel fit and very good in myself,” he told us.
“I think there is always something that you can improve upon, always something, how can I put it, where you can improve or sharpen up even more to help you to remain at the highest level.
“Honestly, before I came here to United, I wasn’t carrying an injury. I finished off the game quite well fitness-wise and felt fine in the last PSG Champions League game I featured in, against [Borussia] Dortmund. The slight problem I had in my adductor when I arrived here, I reckon could have been more to do with getting used to training hard once again after a long lay-off. But yes, I feel good right now, full of desire to do well, keen to train hard, and yes, if I can, I’ll be aiming to get better and keep improving. Absolutely!”
