very unique perspective on football

wake up early every morning with a
willpower to succeed.
Do you mind
sharing the events of what happened?
It is still quite clear to me now. A
vehicle hit us head on at a combined
speed of nearly 140 mph and I had to
brace myself and hold on for dear
life. The noise still lives with me
to this day and when it is life or

is a magical moment going up against
Manchester United, to have the
opportunity to manage against

my children and ultimately that is

it, he is a top player and it is a
coup for Manchester United to sign
him, particularly because their
neighbours wanted him. That will
give Jose Mourinho extra pleasure.
He will help them in positions like
this, a few times this season, they
have found themselves in front and
that should be as simple pass, when
they get into the final third, at
times the final ball has been
disappointing. Another example here,
highlighted last weekend, that

the game. Pol Pot but does not on

he's doing. Touch turn, fantastic
ball and Lacazette eventually

himself. The keeper has no chance.
He heads it back, he turns and gets
the ball. They are getting one hell

about it, he will improve them.

club to a giant club, walk to you

He has taken another
great player from our style and that
is disappointing. I have to say that
the boys played pretty well against
Chelsea without him. Onwards and
upwards. I believe that they are
getting a missing link in respect of
that goal out of nothing, that bit
of quality that will take United
over the line.

Manchester United have world-class

opposition have not played together,

the ball from his team-mates. I
think he can be very pleased with
his work tonight. I thought he was
the best player for Manchester
United and most of the good things
started with him. It is a big shirt
to fill, and number seven shirt, but
this guy will not have a problem
doing that at all. I think the
Manchester United fans will love him
because of his will to win and his
attitude and drive, his character,
all of those things, they will enjoy
having him there.
It does not make a
difference if he is playing against
Yeovil or someone in their Premier

to attack teams. He tries passes.

Mourinho is waiting and it is cold.
Let us hear from him. We have to
talk to the boss. Heard from two of
your players, very happy with the
attitude they showed on the field,
what is your assessment?
These matches are difficult if the
attitude is not correct. The
attitude was correct and in the
first half, they give us a difficult
time, pressing and running and
aggressive on the ball, sometimes on
the same path, but great attitude
from them. Very organised. He knew
what he was saying and asking of the
players. I think we were
professional and in the second half,
at 1-0 we had control of the game,
we have the possession, we have the
space for a transition and then more
quality of the players, more
I have to ask about
Alexis Sanchez, you spoke about him
before the game and Herrera said he
could play anywhere and he was a
addition. Everyone is happy that he
has come. Good players want good
players and Alexis is a fantastic
player for us. The question is
always, which one is going to be
out, who -- where is he going to
play? It is not about that for us.
It is about having a fantastic group
of attacking players and he is
another one with a bit more maturity
and experience. For example, his
choice for the counterattack for the
second goal is the kind of choice
that a player like Marcus is still
too nervous to make that kind of
decision. He will bring us all so
this extra maturity and class. Are
really pleased with him and he was
keen to play, I knew it would be
difficult. Not an easy one for him.
I am happy with his performance.
