Last quote by Rio Ferdinand

I don't think he really wants to play as a No.9 because he can be tied down there and he can be left a bit isolated. He likes being able to come from the wide areas where he gets a little bit of space and that's where he can do his magic. But he used to stand out wide and want to get the ball and take people on. He's not that player no more.feedback

They have got the bit between their teeth and the confidence is flowing through the team, from [Gianluigi] Buffon at the back right through the team to [Paulo] Dybala and [Gonzalo] Higuain up front – they were fantastic to a man.feedback

Yes [they need some new players]. There are a lot of players here who could not have got into this Barcelona team three years ago. Too many names to mention. There are five or six in this team who shouldn't even be putting on the shirt because the way that they played, the intensity and the quality is not on the same planet. These are the players who are supposed to be feeding the front three, but they are not getting the ball to them quickly enough. Defensively they don't look like they have any individuals in there who want to defend and collectively they are not doing it.feedback

He's like I was at 24: a great sponge. He's from a great family and had a good school upbringing. He's very mature for his age – one you'd want your daughter to bring home. He never blames others, which is refreshing, because not all the younger generation of players are like that. Michael is a throwback – and other youngsters should look at him for inspiration.feedback

I look at my children - and that brings you right back into sadness again because they haven't got a mum. I was never suicidal in my head but this situation brought me to understand people who have suicide thoughts (sic). I wouldn't do that because I have three beautiful children. I'd been starting conversations with them...and they would just shut me down. At the time when Rebecca tried to talk to me about certain things moving forward, if the worst case scenario happened, I kind of used to shut down.feedback

At the beginning I was drinking a lot at night time. We have a lady, luckily enough, who lives with us, she would go to bed and I'd come back down in the middle of the night and probably drink a lot for the first three or four months. But I would get up and do the school run and stuff.feedback

[Mourinho] needs somebody other than Zlatan Ibrahimovic to decide matches. I'd love to see Antoine Griezmann at Old Trafford. For four years running he's scored 20-plus goals for Atletico Madrid in Spain and has genuine class and ability.feedback

An absolute machine. A devastating finisher. What it's down to is not just talent, he aligns that with sheer dedication and hard work and that's how you get your rewards. You can see this guy is relentless. I spoke to him in midweek, what is it that actually makes you who you are? 'Hard work and determination' is all he said. And it's true, it's the basics that got him where he is and then it's the talent that separates him.feedback
