“I try to lead the team by being as positive as I can,” Vries told United's website. “Not only in words, but also in my actions, and I think I’m headed in the right direction because the players have responded well to me so far.

“I’m happy to captain the team. It’s an honour and a privilege to be the captain of a professional team. I have the support of the management, and I’m learning all the time from the young players and from the experienced players, how to implement man-management. I’m taking things day by day, and I feel I’m growing all the time.”
