He said after the game: “I’m way too positive for that. It’s just the way it goes. There’s no bad feeling at all, it’s just part of life, and you need to grow up.
“It’s a business! It’s always friendly here, I speak to the guys who I know, it’s always good to see the people.
“It’s just the way it goes, I’ve no regrets for everything that happened. I don’t think they have regrets. I think they’ve won two Premier League titles since I’ve been gone, so they’re doing fairly well!
“For me at that point it was a good decision to go, and maybe for them it was also good to let me go.”
