SERGIO ROMERO has revealed the struggles he faced training alone as it became clear he had no future at Manchester United.

He failed to make a single appearance last season with the likes of David De Gea and Dean Henderson well ahead of him in the pecking order.
And although the 34-year-old kept his head down at the training ground, he admitted it was a difficult conclusion to his time at the Red Devils.
He said: “It was a strange year for me, but I trained all year at Manchester United. Some days I was training by myself, because the squad was preparing for a 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.”
Romero was speaking as he was unveiled at new club Venezia.
He spent the summer looking for a new team after being released by United and eventually found a home at the Serie A strugglers.

The stopper has experience in Italy having played for Sampdoria between 2011 and 2015.
And he admitted he was looking forward to life at a smaller club with more of a family feel.
He added: “I really like the (Venezia) team, there are a lot of young players and I feel young too.
“There’s a solid club behind us, I think this squad has everything required to stay in Serie A.
“I felt a family atmosphere at Sampdoria and it’s a similar sensation here at Venezia. Manchester United is one of the biggest clubs in the world, but I feel Venezia can do well.”
