Oliver Mintzlaff
Emil and Naby are extremely talented and promising players. We are glad that we, as a club, are aiding their development and will now be able to prove ourselves in the Champions League. There are no concrete offers. But of course, the guys have attracted great interest through their performances.feedback

All quotes about Champions League

Robbie Fowler

We all know there's a massive summer coming up. I think the objective of this season was getting in to the Champions League. Ideally we wanted to win the league but it became apparent we were never going to do that. The important thing is we got to the Champions League.feedback

Gerard Houllier

Even the Champions League final, Juventus and Real Madrid. Who won? The team that had Ronaldo. It is a collective sport where the individual makes the difference.feedback

Kevin Muscat

We're extremely happy to have secured Kosta's services again. Kosta is a player who really complements the way we like to play and to be able to sign him for the next two years is a big boost so early in the recruiting process. There's no doubt in my mind that his best years are still ahead of him, so he'll be an important player as we navigate our way through a busy campaign that also includes AFC Champions League.feedback

Andre Silva

I chose Milan because they're a club with great history in the Champions League, I'm happy that Milan wanted me and I couldn't pass up this opportunity. I hope to help Milan in the coming seasons.feedback

Gianluigi Buffon

I'm 99.9 percent certain of retirement. I'm going to have one final, intense season, rich in big moments, and then it will be time to say enough is enough. We've just left one small possibility open with the president [Juventus chief Andrea Agnelli]. That is if we manage to win the Champions League I will carry on playing one more year to try to win the Club World Cup and other trophies.feedback

Jordan Henderson

Everybody was over the moon that we got in the top four. Now we have got to go and win the play-off to actually get into the group stages of the Champions League. Of course we would have liked to win something as well but you have got to take one step at a time and that is a big achievement. Since I have been here, we have only been in the Champions League once. It is a good step in the right direction for us and it will help us develop as a squad.feedback

Kylian Mbappe

[The Champions League] is a dream, a competition that everyone wants to win and that only a minority can win - the most important are the titles. That would be much more of an obsession for me than the Ballon d'Or, for example. I want to touch the stars and, when you dream, you do not dream of playing the middle of the table or maintaining it. [The 2018 World Cup] is the number one goal at international level. As I always say, dreams are good but it's up to me to work for them.feedback

Ilkay Gundogan

I think it was still a good and successful season. The way we played; we started really well in the first seven or eight games – we won everything. It was important to get this third position in the Premier League to go direct into the Champions League, but maybe some people think we could have done more.feedback

Riyad Mahrez

It's an honour to receive compliments like this from such a big manager [Wenger] in world football. But there's a big difference between an offer and speculation, so there is nothing on the table at the moment. I think it would be the right time for me to leave, I have experienced everything at this football club. I went from the Championship to the Premier League, I stayed up with the team the next season, we won the Premier League, I won the PFA player of the year award, I played the Champions League, so we did something quite exceptional.feedback

Ricardo Rodriguez

I can't wait to play in the Europa League. I will do my best. We also want to do well in Serie A and get back into the Champions League, we will do everything to play in it.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

I'm really bad at picking teams. Inter were in big trouble. Real Madrid were in big trouble. Manchester United in big trouble. [I like to work at] teams who want to win, but who are miles away from being able to win. The captain of Real Madrid [Sergio Ramos], who lifted the trophy just the other day and who is now a three-time European champion, had never played in a Champions League quarter-final when I arrived at Real Madrid in 2010.feedback

Jamie Carragher

You want to be in all the top competitions; [Champions League qualification] was a big thing for Liverpool but they're still not there yet, they've still got a qualifying game. We've just got to make sure we get in it and hopefully that will attract the players.feedback

Harry Kane

I'd do whatever I can to win that big gold trophy [the Ballon d'Or]. It is definitely something I aspire to do. Ronaldo won La Liga and the Champions League and that is why he wins it. Messi is in a similar situation. To do that it isn't just individual, it is about a team winning trophies and, hopefully, that is what I can do at Tottenham. [At] club level, I have had a good few seasons but to take that next step it is international football - in the big games, in big moments.feedback

Karim Benzema

Juve are a tough team but if we win it's because we're a team that nobody can stop. The celebration of the Champions League trophy was amazing.feedback

Lionel Messi

It's what I always dreamed and what I always wanted. I would like to finish my career at Barcelona. We play to win titles. We want to be in the Champions League final and to win LaLiga. This year it wasn't to be.feedback

Marcelo Bielsa

I've seen people joke about it. I remember what he told us before the preliminary round of the Champions League last summer. He said that Atletico did not have the best players, but because of their desire and heart, they had one of the best teams. Today we can see the cause and effect of their journey.feedback

Cristiano Ronaldo

The portuguese attacker, who recently won his fourth Champions League, will grace the cover of this years FIFA game which will be released on the 29th September. It is a real pleasure to be on the cover of FIFA 18, It's a great feeling and I am grateful to have been chosen.feedback

Liu Yong Hui

The Chinese supporters will feel that it is a pity that two Chinese teams cannot meet in the AFC Champions League final.feedback

Jesse Lingard

He's settled back in, he's a fun vibrant lad and gives a lot of good energy off, especially in the changing room. He can make the atmosphere very good before games and really get you on it. It's a great atmosphere. We're sixth this year but obviously in the Champions League and next year we will concentrate on the Premier League.feedback

Cristiano Ronaldo

It was a promise. I'd promised that, if we won the Champions League and I scored a goal, I'd do it. I did it and I shaved myself. I always try to do my best for the team and things are going well. The truth is that the numbers don't lie. You can always count on me.feedback

Didier Deschamps

If you ask him, he's ready, he's sure. He's capable of starting a match, he's already done it against Spain. He has shown with his club, in Ligue 1 and the Champions League, that he is performing and decisive. It can be the same with us. He knows what he can do. He knows I have confidence in him. I told him after the Paraguay match.feedback

Eden Hazard

I only know that I still have a contract with Chelsea for three seasons and that we just had an amazing 2016-17 campaign. We want to continue on this path and want to build on this in the Champions League. I am feeling very well at Chelsea. But you never know what will happen. I have not met the board yet to discuss a new deal.feedback

Zinedine Zidane

In short I think he has been nearly perfect in the way he has managed this team and that's why he's got two Champions League titles in a row.feedback

Patrice Evra

This year they qualified for the Champions League and some people said they did not play good football, but we are not in the circus.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

For us it's a fantastic opportunity even because we have returned to the Champions League, we have played a very hard Europa League, for several reasons. But recognise that the best teams are in the Champions League.feedback

Ander Herrera

We are already thinking about the European Super Cup. Football is about trophies, no? About achieving objectives. Now we are going to play Champions League. Three trophies: League Cup, Community Shield and Europa League. I know it is difficult to play in a big club like Manchester United as a No.10 because you know how many goals you have to score to play there. So I thought I had to add something to my game. I had to give more options to the manager. We both agreed.feedback

David Martin

A well deserved party because Real Madrid won several titles this season. Along with the Champions League, they took La Liga, European Supercup and World Cup of Clubs. But in the heads of all these supporters there is already a new challenge: the 13th Champions League for the next season.feedback

Zinedine Zidane

I'm not the best coach in the world. Clearly, I'll continue… our thoughts are already turning to the next year. We're happy because it's not easy to achieve things like winning the league and the Champions League. We've got there with hard work and optimism. It has been a spectacular year.feedback

Gareth Bale

I think it adds to the history of this club. This club is the biggest in Champions League history ever and now we have even more. It's great to be a part of and we want to make more.feedback

Cristiano Ronaldo

Hey boss, how are you? We've got another record, the first team to retain the Champions League and the top scorer in the tournament. What more could I ask?feedback

Marco Asensio

It's incredible to win with Real Madrid and also to score in a Champions League final. Now we have to celebrate.feedback

Zinedine Zidane

There's no doubt whatsoever, today is a truly historic day for Madrid's fans, myself and our big family. Having said that, you know how things are. Next year it's going to be even more difficult. We're going to have to work very hard to win once again. But today we can say that we are a very good team and that we deserved to win the league and the Champions League. It was not easy.feedback

Eden Hazard

The Champions League is a very difficult competition with many good teams who are capable of reaching the semi-finals and the final. You never know, but if we continue with the way we've been playing this season we can go far. Maybe with a couple of new players to take the level even higher we can do well, but it's not just about quality, you also need a bit of luck.feedback

Antonio Conte

The Champions League is a very difficult competition with many good teams who are capable of reaching the semi-finals and the final. You never know, but if we continue with the way we've been playing this season we can go far.feedback

Zinedine Zidane

No one did it [defending the Champions League] and we did it so you can say today is a truly historic day for all Madrid fans, for myself, for the whole [Madrid] family. But you know how things are. Next year it's going to be even more difficult and we are going to have to work very hard to be able to win once again. In the end you're playing against a great team and it's a 50-50 chance but we started with difficulty.feedback

Eden Hazard

Of course, I would consider it if Madrid made an offer. I am keen to win trophies. It would be great to win the Champions League. But Chelsea's goal is to win the Champions League as well. Honestly, I do not know what will happen.feedback

Zinedine Zidane

I'm not the best coach in the world. Clearly, I'll continue… our thoughts are already turning to next year but now we're going to enjoy this. It's a tremendous feeling of joy for the players and the club. We're happy because it's not easy to achieve things like winning the league and the Champions League. It's the same, it's a special day, but LaLiga was the happiest day of my career, because it's 38 matches and to win with the last one is brilliant. It's a year that the players and the club should be congratulated for.feedback

Cristiano Ronaldo

It was a spectacular final. I prepared for this. It was a good choice of mine and my coach and I'm very happy for how I've finished. I want to thank the fans for their support from the very start of the Champions League. The objective now is to win it again next year. Anything is possible.feedback

Cristiano Ronaldo

It was a spectacular end to the season with La Liga and the Champions League. We've got another record, the first team to retain the Champions League and the top scorer in the tournament. What more could I ask?feedback

Alvaro Morata

I don't know, it doesn't depend only on me. I'm happy here, it's my dream to be here, we've just won the Champions League and I'm not thinking about anything other than celebrating. How can I be disappointed if we've won the Champions League? It would be selfish.feedback

Alex Ferguson

It [the Champions League] is definitely the most entertaining tournament in football and players are big celebrities and see it as a platform to perform, enjoy themselves and excel to the best of their abilities.feedback

Sergio Ramos

We had a date with history, we really wanted to win and we managed to achieve what no-one has ever done before – win two Champions League finals in a row. Our success is no accident and three Champions League in four years is crazy. It is a historic day and we must savour it and be aware of what we achieved. We have formed a big group led by a great coach in Zizou.feedback

Cristiano Ronaldo

It's been incredible, another amazing season. To finish the year with the Champions League and the record, I'm very happy.feedback

Gary Lineker

It's quite different if you bring the Champions League final to a city like Cardiff compared to a city like London. London will not change if the Champions League final comes to town. For Cardiff it's a fantastic experience. It's a bit of a challenge for us because of the lack of infrastructure - hotels and things like that - but I'm sure that they will never forget it.feedback

Gianluigi Buffon

The emotions I feel might be different to any other guy who's younger, like Dani (Alves). Dani has already won this competition and he has four or five years ahead in his career. I have to rule out this possibility, so yes, it will be much more special for me. He's a bit like me. He's an optimist. He said, Yes, I will help you win the Champions League.feedback

Zinedine Zidane

You can say today is an historic day for all Madrid fans, for the players and for myself. I feel extremely happy because the truth is it's been a special year, you couldn't dream of anything better. We won the league on the last day and we know it's very difficult to win a Champions League final for the second year running – we've managed to do it. We started with difficulties but I think in the second half we were clearly superior. We kept the ball, pressured higher up and physically I think we won the game there as well because of the determination we showed.feedback

Gianluigi Buffon

I sent him a text when I heard he signed for Juventus. He's a bit like me, he's an optimist and he said: 'Yes I will help you win the Champions League'. Until now he has been a revelation for me. Not as a player, we've all seen, we've all learned what he can do on a pitch. We know him as a footballer but I met him and got to know him and off the pitch there's a lot more to him than what you see on the pitch.feedback

Massimiliano Allegri

This year is different. Last year, we had a good season in the Champions League, lost to Bayern Munich [in the round of 16] just one minute before the end of the game and we have been growing gradually.feedback

Massimiliano Allegri

We have to win. In 2015 we got to the final and deserved to, but at the same time perhaps we were not strongly motivated – maybe we didn't feel confident enough after struggling for a few years in the Champions League. We didn't get to the final by chance, but we didn't expect to win. This year is different. Last year we had a good season in the Champions League and lost to Bayern in the last minute. We've been growing gradually. Now it's completely different.feedback

Massimiliano Allegri

Juventus haven't lost six finals, we've been involved in eight! Making the final is incredible. There's only one Champions League like there's only one Superbowl and what matters is being in the right place at the right time.feedback

Eden Hazard

Next season, we will have the Champions League to play but we want to keep the Premier League trophy in Chelsea. It's going to be hard but we know [people] expect a lot from Chelsea now. But now is the time to think about holidays.feedback

Gianluigi Buffon

Next season, under Conte, I expect that Chelsea will be one of the big challengers in the Champions League.feedback

Tim Bridge - Deloitte

By doing so, they created a demand for tickets and a safe, secure environment that attracted a new audience to their games. That set them apart from all of their traditional rivals. However, Juve have also benefited enormously from the other Italian clubs' poor results in European competition because it has allowed them to keep almost the entire market pool from Italy's Champions League TV revenue all for themselves.feedback

Vladimir Jugovic

It gave me a Bianconero heart, I feel Juventino and I hope that Juve can lift the Champions League trophy on Saturday.feedback

Fernando Morientes

Madrid always have very good teams. If they won this Champions League, they would be in the best position of history.feedback

Fernando Morientes

It is not a surprise for me because he is a good manager. He won La Liga and the Champions League last year. He also did very good work in Castilla. At Madrid, they have always had very good teams. The Galacticos, Zidane, Roberto Carlos, [Luis] Figo, all those players. But in this moment, Madrid have an excellent team.feedback

Gianluigi Buffon

This game is very important to me. When I think about this long career, in which I have played many years I am grateful. It would be the perfect final [to win in Cardiff] and people do like fairy-tales. Perhaps then we didn't feel confident because we had struggled in the Champions League in the years before. We didn't end up in the final by chance but we didn't expect to win. This year it is different … Juventus have improved a lot as a club.feedback

Gianluigi Buffon

Next season, under Conte, I expect that Chelsea will be one of the big challenges in the Champions League. Then coaches like Pep (Guardiola) and (Jose) Mourinho, who have had a lot of success in Europe, will also be strong. It will be their second season with their clubs and they can also challenge.feedback

Peter Moore

Players who want to play in Champions League - let's not forget this is a World Cup season at the end of next year and players want their national team managers to see them on the big stages.feedback

Jean-Michel Aulas

I've not had his agent on the phone, nor him, as I've been in Cardiff (For the Women's Champions League final).feedback

Peter Moore

I think the stars are aligned here at the moment. We have good owners, amazing investment in the stadium, we are presently laying down a brand new multi-million pound players surface, planning to improve our training facilities, we have a world class manager, money to spend on the team and we will be ready for our Champions League qualifying games.feedback

Gareth Bale

It is massively special for me personally, as it is where I was born, where I grew up. Any Champions League final is special, but obviously this is a little bit extra special. I always dreamed I'd play a Champions League final, but never in my home town. At the time there was not a stadium big enough, I don't think. You never expect to win two [Champions League] finals, never mind three. It is the reason I came to this club, to play in finals, to win trophies, and that is what we are doing at the moment. Hopefully, we can add another one now on Saturday.feedback

Emmanuel Petit

I have respect for both clubs but for one player in particular I would love Juventus to win the Champions League – I want them to win it for Gigi Buffon.feedback

Emmanuel Petit

If Zidane could win the Liga regularly, that would be more important to me than the Champions League – and he's done it in his first season. The week in, week out test of that league is the real test of a manager. This guy, I love him. He's such a great example to the younger generation. How he handles himself as a player and a person.feedback

Emmanuel Petit

It didn't work as well with Ancelotti and Benitez – when they tried the players didn't listen and fought the authority. Zidane has communicated in a smooth way, he's a natural. It was a surprise when he won the Champions League last season – I wanted to see how he'd cope with La Liga over the course of a season.feedback

Emmanuel Petit

The way he managed the team and the turnaround he's brought about is incredible. Before Zidane, some managers tried to rest Ronaldo but they couldn't as he wanted to play every game. Zizou has convinced him he should play the games he can to really help the team. Then he goes and scores a hat-trick against Atletico in the Champions League semi-final. This guy, I love him. He's such a great example to the younger generation. How he handles himself as a player and a person.feedback

John Petter

Making the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League available for free to everyone in the UK shows that BT really is serious about making sport much more accessible to the public. These are two of the biggest club football tournaments in the world and showing them live on social media and on mobile devices makes it more readily available to a younger audience as well as available to traditional TV viewers.feedback

Khaldoon Al-Mubarak - Manchester City

But nevertheless, the point remains that going into next year, no doubt, teams that are in Europe will have a more challenging experience of winning the league than teams not in Europe but that's no excuse because, for us, our job is to try to win both the Premier League and the Champions League and to do everything we can to do so and that will remain our objective.feedback

Khaldoon Al-Mubarak - Manchester City

There's no doubt it's extremely hard to do the double, because of the nature of the Premier League and the level of competition in the Champions League. This is an unbelievably challenging feat to achieve, but nevertheless you would not be in the position I am if you don't think and believe you can do it. Winning the league is winning the league, and they've done an incredible job and my hat is off to Antonio Conte and his squad and the entire management of Chelsea, they've done an incredible job this year and the results speak for themselves.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn

The league wins, the cup wins. Until this season, the 20 years in the Champions League, I think he's a guy that's brought the club forward to a world status and we should recognise that.feedback

Cristiano Ronaldo

We can get a double, defend the title and enter the history of the Champions League. It's a big motivation and there's only one step left.feedback

Gareth Bale

To be in the final in my home city, where I was born, is an incredible feeling, but there's one more job to do and that's to win the Champions League again and make history.feedback

Zinedine Zidane

When you lose a final it's a horrible feeling but it's part of football. I accept what football has given me. When I arrived at this club I had to win the Champions League and I got it with this white shirt. After we won the league it was something spectacular. I'm still feeling it and I'm very happy.feedback

Gareth Bale

I'm sure [Zidane] will speak to us and I'll find out at some point, but I have been working hard, training now the last few days. We had a practice game on Saturday and I came through it all unscathed. I feel strong, feel fit, [but] obviously match fitness is a different thing. It has been a difficult season, so whatever I am required to do [I will do]. I obviously have battled hard to get fit for this, and whatever is the best for the team is the most important thing: to lift that Champions League trophy is the most important thing.feedback

Riyad Mahrez

Out of the huge admiration and respect I hold for Leicester City Football Club I wanted to be totally honest and transparent with them and have therefore informed the club that I feel now is the time for me to move on. I had a good discussion with the Chairman last summer and we agreed at that time that I would stay for another year in order to help the club as best as I could following the transition of winning the title and in the Champions League.feedback

Iker Casillas

I obviously support Madrid, but Buffon's career should not come to an end without him having won the Champions League. He has won almost everything, except this one and it is weighing down on him. He has had a great season and that he is in the final again is something positive for the old players like Petr Cech and me. He is showing that you can still do well and be competitive at the age of 39.feedback

Massimiliano Allegri

There's only one Champions League like there's only one Super Bowl and what matters is being in the right place at the right time. I'm delighted to be in the final and I feel fortunate to be leading a team out in Cardiff on Saturday.feedback

Lionel Messi

It was a marvellous season. Few people predicted that we could go so far, even in Ligue 1. Winning the Ligue 1 title was special, since the club had not won for so long [17 years] and having such a powerful opponent in PSG. In the Champions League, after going through all the qualifying stages, picking up a group that was called a 'death group' and surviving to the semi-final was magical. If we look at all of the teams behind us – Barcelona, Bayern, [Manchester] City and Dortmund, which we have eliminated – it's a great achievement.feedback

Gonzalo Higuain

The fact that I played for Real earlier in my career adds some extra intrigue to the game for me personally but I can't stress how much I want to win the Champions League for Juventus. I hope we win, then it doesn't matter who scores. I came here to win. Right now we are doing well, we have won two competitions and we hope to win another in a few days.feedback

Marc Bartra

We might not have been so consistent in the Bundesliga, but we played well in the Champions League and won the cup.feedback

Vincenzo Montella - AC Milan

We are a club that also likes great players, even though we will not compete in the Champions League next season.feedback

Juan Mata

The road wasn't neither short nor easy, but we finally got our goal, so next season we will play in the Champions League, which is what this club deserves and where we all want to be. Ajax was a tough opponent (it's very brave to give so much confidence to so many young players in a team, so credit to them for that). However, I think we deserved to win because ever since the first minute of the final we had a very clear idea of what we wanted and we performed as an experienced, well-prepared team.feedback

Santiago Canizares

I had a really good time with the fans. It's impossible to live a match like that with a low pulse. I was sure they were going to lose the Mastercard challenge. It gives prestige to teams, there is the television rights, the fans. Winning the Champions League is the objective of all of the big teams at the start of the season and for some other sides I have played for, winning it was their biggest dream. It is the competition with the most emotions, one that the best players save themselves for. Without doubt, winning the Champions League means being the best team in the world.feedback

Santiago Canizares

The Champions League is the title with the most prestige, that is something everybody agrees on.feedback

Giorgio Chiellini

In a Champions League final you have to do your basics well but also be able to go above and beyond.feedback

Thibaut Courtois

It's not a good feeling now. I had the same thing in Spain when I won the league and then lost the Champions League. We wanted to end on a high, now we feel sad. Winning is everything so this is hard to face but we have to try to forget it. The first goal should never have been allowed - it was clearly a handball and then Ramsey was offside because he was interfering in play. I think it was a handball even if it was maybe not deliberate. His hands were not in a natural position. At the start of every season they tell us the rules and now the hands were not where they should be.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

I don't care about football for a month. I'm really happy with our season, the [EFL Cup and Europa League] trophies, to be back in Champions League but now I have a rest, to disconnect completely and enjoy my family and friends and other sports I like.feedback

Antonio Conte

When you stay for a long time for sure he is a good manager. We must consider him to be one of the best managers in history. For Chelsea it is very important to keep the right concentration. In this aspect we could start as underdogs because we won the league and we celebrated winning it. It was right to enjoy the moment, and in the other side we face a team who has lost the chance to play in Champions League. They have only this to go for this season. We must retain great focus and desire.feedback

Kylian Mbappe

For all of his work, [Buffon] deserves the Ballon d'Or, but I think it depends on the Champions League final. If Real Madrid win, I think it will be Cristiano Ronaldo but otherwise, I think it would be good for Buffon to win the Golden Ball. It's flattering to be compared to Henry, but as I said and I repeat: 'everybody writes his story.feedback

Massimiliano Allegri

We will look to end the Serie A season on a high by winning against Bologna, then we will think about the Champions League final. Higuain, Dybala, Mario Mandzukic and Juan Cuadrado will line up in attack on Saturday.feedback

Arsene Wenger

Plus, we had to buy the soil and the all businesses we had to buy out so it went for over £420million, and we had to pay a huge amount of money back every year and that's why we had to stay in the Champions League.feedback

Arsene Wenger

Today the television money makes the weight of the Champions League much weaker. At the time it was absolutely needed. That was, for me, the biggest period of pressure between 2006 and 2014. If you told me today I'd do that again I would say 'no thank you, I'll leave that to someone else.feedback

Antonio Conte

It is a good opportunity for me to lift it. I don't trust that [Saturday] will be the last game for Arsene. He has done a good job and only this season they missed the Champions League. Sometimes you can undervalue this, they played 19 years in a row in this competition, it shows that his work is very good. It would be great to do this, but in modern football it is difficult to stay in the same club. But if you stay for many years and improve your club it is the best solution to build something important.feedback

Steven Gerrard

I was looking around and it was a strange feeling out there. I was thinking if Jurgen Klopp had been at the club a bit earlier what might have been. I want to play for him and I am 37 next week! For me, it's such an exciting project. Not just because we qualified for the Champions League but the whole project.feedback

Massimiliano Allegri

I want to stay at Juventus. I have a contract until 2018 and need to talk to the club after the Champions League final.feedback

Arsene Wenger

We had to stay in the Champions League and we had to make at least 54,000 people [happy]. There are debates when you build a stadium. How big can it be? It's quite simple: at the time it was £4,000 per seat. You multiply that by 60,000 and it's £240million.feedback

Claude Makelele

Next season we will see him become even better because he will have the challenge of the Champions League. He is also part of a fantastic generation of young players coming through for France, which will also see him develop.feedback

Paul Pogba

If Juventus win the Champions League, I am very happy, very happy. Then we would be in the Super Cup against them? True. But I can say good luck to my former team-mates. We wanted to do it right from the start of the competition. We got up there and we are very proud now.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

It's the end of a very difficult season but I think a very good season. We prefer this way rather than finishing fourth, third or second, we got the objective to go back to Champions League and win an important title. The club is now a club with every title and we are very happy cos we fought hard since the beginning.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

I think not. Honestly, I think not. But you never know. Good players are always welcome. The club knows perfectly well what I want. They knew two months ago. It had nothing to do with qualifying for the Champions League. A giant club, but it's not a giant team. We need that second step, possibly the third one.feedback

Wayne Rooney

We've seen in the last three or four Premier League games we've been focusing in on this game to try to make sure we get the win and obviously get the Champions League spot, which we've done, but also to get a trophy. So it's a good moment for us.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

There is no question that if we're not in the Champions League other clubs will be able to attract them quicker than us but we just have to go about our business. For me, enough is enough. It has been a very hard last few months, we were short of numbers. Three trophies in one season and the Champions League. I am very happy in my most difficult season as a manager.feedback

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge

We have personnel decisions to make. The transfer activity starts now. Sule has come on really well in the last six months and has also been called up to the Germany squad. He's a player who'll make a positive contribution for us in the future. [Rudy is one of the players who guaranteed Hoffenheim's qualification for the Champions League. We've already discussed the transfer policy with [manager] Carlo [Ancelotti] and the board and decided on targets. Next season we'll have a team that's more than capable of challenging for titles again.feedback

Alex Brosque

I think we can [beat Liverpool]. They're a great team in the Champions League next year and a huge worldwide club, but I think we gave Chelsea and Tottenham a good go two years ago.feedback

Frank Leboeuf

It's very hard to stay as Real Madrid coach for a long time, Mr Perez is very impatient. When it's possible, Zidane will join the national team, that's for sure. It seems that when Zinedine Zidane touches something, it becomes golden. When Real Madrid decided to name him as head coach, he came into the dressing room as the guy who won the World Cup and had worked hard for the club and won the Champions League with a fantastic volley in Glasgow [in 2002], so he had the respect of the dressing room.feedback

Frank Leboeuf

When Real Madrid decided to name him as head coach, he came into the dressing room as the guy who won the World Cup and had worked hard for the club and won the Champions League with a fantastic volley in Glasgow [in 2002], so he had the respect of the dressing room. But I think his work alongside Ancelotti as an assistant, and then his work in charge of the reserve team, gave him enough experience to get into the job.feedback

Joe Cole

Not only do I think he will be a success, he's already a success. I've seen ex-players criticise him, but he's already a success there. And when he wins the Europa League, I'll go as far as to say that – after [Antonio] Conte – he's probably the manager of the season, to get that group of players to win two trophies and get to the Champions League. Let's just say he's gone deep in the Europa League and there's probably a good chance he's going to win, so that's two trophies.feedback

Antoine Griezmann

I want titles, I'm ready to leave. We [Atletico] finished third in La Liga. It was the objective of the club, but we, the players, want more. With Atletico I've reached a final and a semi-final in the Champions League; we're close, but we lack something. I'll see what the club do. It will depend on the transfers. My family, know that I love football to win trophies. I want to win titles. I've reached a point where playing nice football and scoring goals isn't enough anymore. That's it. Winning titles is what I'm looking for this summer, when deciding my future.feedback

Antoine Griezmann

We finished third in LaLiga. It was the club's objective but the players want more. I want to win trophies. I've come to a point where I play really well and score goals but it's not enough. That's it. To win trophies is what I'm going to look for this summer from the moment I decide my future. I reached a final and a semi-final of the Champions League with Atletico. We're close but we're missing something.feedback

James Milner

That's probably a question for the manager. I am a Liverpool player and want to be contributing as much as I can for the football club. I proved this year I will play wherever the manager wants me to play. It's up to him. I think so but it's disrespectful to the club if you say the only reason you are going to Liverpool is for Champions League. With the history, the manager and the players at this club, it's slightly disrespectful if the only reason you come is that.feedback

Gerard Pique

Messi this year will win the Golden Shoe as top scorer and deserves the Ballon d'Or again. But if you must look at the trophies then Buffon has won the Scudetto, the Coppa Italia and can win the Champions League. He deserves it for his career and also for this season and it would be good for another goalkeeper to win it after [Lev] Yashin. It'll be a game between two great teams.feedback

Chris Sutton

It's going to be an interesting summer in terms of who Chelsea are going to acquire in their recruitment because they've got the Champions League next season.feedback

Juan Mata

The Champions League is the best competition and it's one this club should be playing in every season. Now we are playing in the Europa League and if we win it as I did a few years ago [when Chelsea beat Benfica in 2013], it's a double bonus, as it's a trophy and a Champions League spot, so it's very important for us. [Either way] we still want to play European football. Hopefully it is [in the Champions League on] Tuesday and Wednesdays, instead of Thursdays [in the Europa League], but if it's Thursdays we will play Thursdays and it wouldn't be an excuse not to try to win the title.feedback

Luciano Spalletti

There's no other thought than Roma-Genoa now, and I don't know if it really will be Totti's farewell. He must say what he plans to do and I don't know what he's thinking. Certainly, during the game, he'll have the opportunity to help his team-mates win for a Champions League [group-stage] spot.feedback

Juan Mata

We'd be round the table together having something to eat and then the TV would be put on and we'd watch the Champions League, . And, yeah, we'd be wishing next season that we are there.feedback

Juan Mata

Yeah, it's true. The Champions League is the best competition and it's one this club should be playing in every season. Now we are playing in the Europa League and if we win it as I did a few years ago [with Chelsea], it's a double bonus, as it's a trophy and a Champions League spot, so it's very important for us.feedback

Thierry Henry

Are they entertaining? Are they a nice side to watch? At the end of the day, it will be the EFL Cup and the Europa League - if they win it. Then they will be in the Champions League and it will be a successful season. Whether you like Jose Mourinho or not, it will be a successful season. Everyone would love to see Wayne Rooney finish his career at Manchester United, but I doubt it. I think he might have to go. When you have a player like Rooney and he's not playing, what's the point. If he's not part of the team, then he should go. That's exactly what John Terry said when he left Chelsea.feedback

Thierry Henry

I'm sure he wants to be successful with Arsenal but if he sees it is not going to happen like this year and next year, there will be no Champions League so he has to wait another year and then there are no guarantees you will make it the year after so let's see what is going to happen this summer but it is vital to keep him.feedback

Thierry Henry

I hope he is going to stay but he wants to win the Champions League. He wants to be at a club that is going to be competing at least and it hasn't happened recently at Arsenal. Who knows what is going to happen with him. Is he going to listen to other teams who are going to come and get him? He is 28 or 29 soon so he knows that the clock is ticking.feedback

Jon Terry - PricewaterhouseCoopers

With the Champions League and the number of games we're going to play, I think we really need to strengthen in the transfer window. I'm sure the owner will sit down with the manager and discuss that. I'd be surprised if there were not at least five or six big players coming in the summer.feedback

Sergio Ramos

We deserve a lot of credit for [the] title … it's the best league in the world. I've been here a long time and it's a very tough league to win. Not just Barcelona but Sevilla and Atletico Madrid have pushed us right to the end. There are always doubts during the season but we've managed to keep working and fighting hard and we've done really well. We're going to enjoy this with our fans and then we'll prepare for the Champions League final.feedback

Juergen Klopp

It is a long season and when our timing got better we were unbelievably dangerous. I am really happy about this. I think people deserve this opportunity for us to be able to qualify for the Champions League.feedback

Gianluigi Buffon

The sixth straight Scudetto is something extremely significant. We have written some beautiful pages that enter the book of football history. Winning is never easy. Staying at the top is synonymous with sacrifice and dedication on the part of everyone. I thought for a whole week about the Champions League final with Real Madrid, so I was practically on vacation at Roma and totally embarrassed myself.feedback

Arsene Wenger

It's more the fact that we want to play in the best competition but did Chelsea play in the Champions League this year? Did Liverpool? No. If we have to cope with it, we have to cope with it.feedback

Arsene Wenger

For 20 years, I had to answer: 'Is that all you have to offer?' So, Sunday, it becomes an absolutely vital subject? Absolutely unbelievable. Financially, you don't suffer any more [by failing to qualify]. During the period when we had to pay the Emirates Stadium off, the income of the Champions League was absolutely vital. But it does not have the financial weight that it had before because television money has gone up.feedback

Arsene Wenger

In 2006, we had the Champions League final to prepare and this season we have the FA Cup final. We thought we had the chance to win the Champions League and to be in the Champions League again, so the fear to be in it was less big.feedback

Juergen Klopp

I feel we are already back on track. It should not sound disrespectful to the past. I really feel we are already on the way – we started already. Of course it is important that a club of our power needs to be at the top. It should not sound negative but if Champions League is the only reason why a player is coming, it makes no sense for him or for us.feedback

Juergen Klopp

It should not sound negative but if Champions League is the only reason why a player is coming, it makes no sense for him or for us. It is important for players because that is what they want to play but it is the progress and development and a positive perspective of a club that is important for players and we are powerful will be successful in the future. For this we need the players, of course. We have very good players and we need a few more.feedback

Antonio Conte

My objective is to lay the foundations so Chelsea can continue to win. This is already a big club, but it's inconsistent. They won the Champions League, then went out in the first round. They won the Premier League and then finished 10th. Chelsea need to find stability at the top. However, if I am to stay, then they will come and stay with me. It will be a great opportunity for my daughter to live in a foreign country. I'll tell you one thing for sure, I won't have another year on my own.feedback

Aleksandar Kolarov

We are far and away the best team in the league. If you do not win trophies at our club it is probably not a great season but we have improved a lot. We are a much better team even now from the start of the season. We are going to be there to win trophies again and I'm sure we are going to win. The main target for this club is to win domestic trophies and of course win the Champions League. The target of every big club is Champions League finals and the Champions League trophy.feedback

Aleksandar Kolarov

The most beautiful football is in Europe in the Champions League and that is a target for the team and our club for next season.feedback

Juergen Klopp

I can only speak from a German point of view of other clubs but Chelsea has the money, Man City is now coming up - wonderful players, big signings - Man United is Man United, but we are a really interesting project. Everyone can see from outside. The mood is different. The players are really positive this season compared to last season because they have seen our way, our football, and that is good. The Champions League would be the icing on the cake but that's it - not more. If Champions League is the only reason why a player is coming, it makes no sense for him or for us.feedback

Alexandre Lacazette

I think that's [the summer] the right moment [to leave]. I want to discover something else, to put myself in danger and to get to the next level. People say in passing that I score goals, but I know very well that on the European level I am not very well known. I want to see if I can answer the questions that people are asking, and to make further progress. It's [Atletico] a club that is in the last stages of the Champions League for several years. It is a great team, in a new stadium, and it is also a club that makes the players progress. And there is Antoine Griezmann.feedback

Juergen Klopp

For different reasons the Champions League is a wonderful competition. You can earn a lot of money there - that's money we didn't have last year. That is very interesting and is one part of it but we are already in a good position. We are a club without financial problems and we have money to spend but it makes sense to think before we spend and that is what we are doing. We will see what happens afterwards but we are working not only on the pitch because my day is 24 hours and we have some good people around working really hard.feedback

Juergen Klopp

I have said before, for different reasons it really makes sense to play in the Champions League. It is a wonderful competition, outstanding. Fans love it, players love it and managers love it – that's great. And then, of course, you can earn money there a lot, money we didn't have last year, we didn't have two years ago. That's very interesting, that's one part of it.feedback

Juergen Klopp

It's important because it's a game of this very successful season. It's all clear. We have to perform, we have to win. If we have enough points after this matchday then we deserve Champions League. If we don't then we don't deserve it. It's pretty easy.feedback

Juergen Klopp

There are different reasons to want to be in the Champions League. It's a wonderful competition, outstanding. Fans love it, players love it, managers love it. It's great.feedback

Juergen Klopp

The good thing is to win the Champions League, so you win a trophy and you have Champions League football next season.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

I always disagree with it, I don't think a team should play in two European competitions in the same season. I think if a team goes to the Champions League and doesn't qualify they should go home. The Europa League is for team who have been in it since the beginning, like us. We finished fifth and went to the Europa League. The age of players isn't important, the quality is important. I think Ajax make the right investments at the right times. Ajax has a very good scouting and education system. These talented players don't arrive at Ajax by accident.feedback

Vincent Kompany

It does say a lot about the Premier League that two top teams will miss out on the top four. But it's exciting. Usually you find out a lot about the teams and the players in those kind of moments. We'd have preferred to be tighter to first place perhaps, but I'm sure eventually that will be the case. In this instance we're fighting for a Champions League place and it's down to details.feedback

Piero Ausilio - Inter

Inter tried to sign Dybala, but there was a €20m difference with Juventus and in the end he went there. Today it is not possible to think of spending €200m or €300m on the transfer market. It's not that we don't want to, it's simply impossible. Every day I read about players we're supposed to be buying, but the truth is we must respect the salary cap. Our revenue is €200-230m, whereas Juventus – who participate regularly in the Champions League – make €400m.feedback

Piero Ausilio - Inter

After their relegation in 2006, Juve worked on a specific business model, investing in the youth academy and having great managerial vision. They built their own stadium and gradually raised the wages, working on the commercial development and regularly taking part in the Champions League. They are able to do this consistently and that is what makes the difference with the other Italian clubs. That gap can get even wider, because you can't fix this by signing the best players, because the best players go where they earn a lot and can play in the Champions League. They want to win.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

I hope that Big Sam [Allardyce] shows he's a good friend and he goes slow. He tells [Wilfried] Zaha to go slow, he leaves [Christian] Benteke at home. It's a great shame that we are not like other countries, who will bend over in fixture terms to help their teams win European competitions. We've all been moaning about the fact we're not getting anywhere near the Champions League or we're not getting anyone winning the Europa League. The players showed me they want to be in the #UEL final, they want to be an option & they gave everything they have.feedback

Juergen Klopp

It would not be easy for Bayern to win the Premier League. But their chances to win it are not that low. We would be very disappointed, if we did not qualify for the Champions League. To call the Europa League failure, which we are qualified for already, is not my view.feedback

Mauricio Pochettino

Of course. You know better than me it is so difficult. We talk about 'if Tottenham are in the Champions League, it will be more attractive.' But then it's all about if you pay or not when we talk about top players. It was a fantastic moment that we'll remember forever. It will always be my best memory of WHL.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

I understand that from the press' point of view and your perspective that [the Europa League final] is the big headline. I understand that we are in the final and to be back in the Champions League makes a whole difference for all of you and you analyse a team's season. But I know what I gave and I know what the players gave. From our perspective we are not going to accept that one goal, one save, one post, something that is going to decide a final, is going to decide if we worked well or worked bad.feedback

Antoine Griezmann

Juventus will win the Champions League and therefore Gigi Buffon the Ballon d'Or. [Finals] hurt more than semis. Because you think you're going to raise the trophy, you make moves with your people ... Then you lose and it's very hard.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

I don't lose time. When I know that the battle is lost, I don't fight the battle. You (journalists) are English, you are here since you were born. I'm here already, four plus three, seven years. I never saw any detail of trying to care about the English teams involved in European competitions. I never saw that with Chelsea, I never saw that with Manchester United, with (Champions League semi-finalists) Manchester City last year. I never saw. So I think it's just a lost battle. We have to accept the way it is.feedback

Dimitri Seluk

Not all clubs can afford him, so for example in the Bundesliga, only Bayern Munich would be suited to his level. We absolutely will not take proposals into account from China or the United States. Yaya will continue playing in Europe at a high level. He wants to win, both domestically and in the Champions League. You live well there and Serie A is a top-level tournament. For the moment there is nothing concrete or talks started with any particular club, but we are open to anything.feedback

Karim Benzema

What Mbappe is doing in Ligue 1 and has done in the Champions League is exceptional. The last player who seemed as good at this level was Neymar. He is a phenomenon for his age, but he needs to establish himself in the long term. At the start, the superlatives come quickly. I was branded in the same way when I made my debut in Lyon's first team aged 17. You have to keep the same standard when you grow and are in difficult times. It is then that you see if you can make a step up, even more so if you are at a very big club or if you remain a good player as many have after shining very young.feedback

Leonardo Jardim

We have to play as usual, with the same attitude and ambition. We will not play for a draw. The objective is to get the team prepared in the best way possible and to stay far away from the euphoric attitude around us. We have to keep a cool head. Everything is possible in football, we all remember Barcelona's comeback in the Champions League. Those who have congratulated me have yet to receive a response... I respect the game. We have worked for this title for 11 months and this is not the moment to let up.feedback

Petr Cech

A European trophy is a European trophy. I have to say you want to have the Champions League one rather than the Europa League one but you can see more and more, big teams are treating the Europa League with respect because it is a European trophy. Now you can qualify for the Champions League too. I have to say it is a fantastic memory for myself to look at the [Europa League] medal. I only played in it once and was fortunate in one go to have won it. But obviously I would rather be in the Champions League, that is for sure. Let's see what will happen.feedback

Cliff Baty

It's a 30 per cent reduction in the following year's payments. Receipt of sponsorship next year from Adidas would be £70m if we're in the Champions League, so that would be 30 per cent of that, so £21m reduction. The important thing to remember about that is it's spread out over the remaining life of the contract. Clearly the Champions League has greater revenues, but we have designed an offset within salary costs and our bonus structure which attempts to limit the impact between being in the Champions League and being in the Europa League.feedback

Cliff Baty

We qualified by winning the FA Cup and because only ourselves and Southampton went through into that first round we got a bigger share of the market pool, and also the performance of Southampton and Tottenham later on in that competition meant that we picked up a bigger share of that market pool. We've benefited to almost £7m or £8m over a normalised Europa League in this season. The winner [of the Europa League] gets €6.5m, the loser gets €3.5m, and there will be a bit of market pool from that. But, for us, the bigger prize in pure financial terms is the Champions League and Adidas impact.feedback

Cliff Baty

Clearly the Champions League has greater revenues, but we've designed an offset within salary costs and our bonus structure which attempts to dampen the impact between being in the Champions League or Europa League. With the Champions League we'd expect £40m-£50m in revenues, whereas the Europa League is normally around £15m-£20m million in revenues. We'e benefited this year from the performance of other English teams in the Europa League. We qualified by winning the FA Cup and because only ourselves and Southampton went through into that first round, we got a bigger share of the market pool.feedback

Dylan McGowan

It's a high quality league and I'll be playing against some huge clubs. On the weekend I went to watch them against Porto and there's obviously Benfica and Sporting Lisbon, too – Champions League and Europa League clubs, so that'll be exciting for me to play against that quality of opposition. They've just got such a huge history in football, the Portuguese. They've got so many coaches doing well and they produce so many quality players.feedback

John Petter

Making the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League available for free to everyone in the UK shows that BT really is serious about making sport much more accessible to the public. These are two of the biggest club football tournaments in the world and showing them live on social media and on mobile devices makes it more readily available to a younger audience as well as available to traditional TV viewers. We believe that VR can offer our viewers an immersive second screen view which will enhance our coverage.feedback

Laurent Koscielny

We perform every weekend to be in the top four and to fight for the title over the season. To not be in the Champions League next season would be a very disappointing situation for us but we will fight until the end to have as much of a chance to be there next season. The Champions League is a competition that a player wants to play in because you play against the best teams in Europe and it is always an important competition... It is very important for Arsenal to be with the best teams in the world.feedback

Harry Kane

It was special out there after the final match, but imagine what it would be like winning a Premier League, or winning an FA Cup or a Champions League or something.feedback

Dimitri Seluk

We have not heard anything [from City]. I read a lot of stories about a new City contract but I know nothing about this. The last time I spoke to anyone at City was in Monaco in March. We have many possibilities. Yaya already has offers from different clubs. They are very interesting offers. There are clubs who have already qualified for next season's Champions League, but for Yaya, Manchester City is a very special club. He has given his heart to the club and he would find it difficult to leave City.feedback

Phil Neville

Oh, by far [it is a regret]. We didn't have success and I think it was purely and simply because of the Premier League. I'll never forget going away with England and, in 1999-2000, United would have had big games in the Champions League. And, at the time, you would probably have said that the league and Champions League were becoming more important than playing international football. I think now playing for your club is more rewarding - and definitely of a better standard - than playing international football and it was becoming that way.feedback

Philippe Coutinho

Barcelona is one of the best teams in the world. So far, nothing has come to me because, if anything comes, it comes to my manager. What I have to do is focus on the pitch. I have a contract with Liverpool, there are a lot of chances for us to be in the Champions League next year. What I have to do is focus on football and those things are resolved by the business people. I'm happy to know that a great club has an interest, it's cool, for the recognition of their work. What I have to do is keep working hard. Liverpool is a great club and we have to put Liverpool back in the Champions League.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

We, Manchester United, for us it is more important to win titles than to finish top four. So if we can win a third title [including the Community Shield], or like you like to say a second title, if we can do that it would be magnificent for us because we know that it's a big objective. We know that if we lose the final we don't play Champions League. We know that. But we fight for titles and probably other clubs finishing in the top four, probably they would like to be in our position to try and fight for the title.feedback

Diego Simeone

We are proud of how we have competed both in the Spanish Cup and the Champions League, getting to the semi-finals and playing great games in both, and now we have to keep competing because the biggest aim this club has is to keep improving.feedback

Diego Simeone

Everybody cares about doing things well against Betis and taking care of that. After that we have spoken already a lot of times about my situation and there is no need to clear anything up about it. Sincerely the only thing I am thinking about is what we need to do to make sure of third position. Later on we can look at those things you have asked about, but today the only thing that matters is what we need to do to get into a direct Champions League place for next season.feedback

Marcos Alonso

This is Antonio's team, they are his players and when they have something to celebrate you can see that. He has done a similar job to José in many ways; you can see the passion and winning mentality is back. Now they will have to add to their squad, which is going to be tough because the team they have already looks almost complete. There's no point bringing in players who aren't better than the ones they have got, so you have to be talking top-class, but you can't win the Champions League without the type of player who can make a difference.feedback

Frank Lampard

We've all heard the stories about Inter Milan wanting Conte and I am sure the club will want to put that to bed as soon as possible. They (Chelsea) will want to reward him for this – as all top teams do. It's not just the manager. There's talk about Hazard, about Costa, about Courtois. But you can't win titles or go into the Champions League without having top players who can make the difference. This year, players like Costa and Hazard have made that difference, so Chelsea will be desperate to keep them.feedback

Carlo Ancelotti

It was an absolutely crazy game. It was a very open game, just like we expected. Leipzig started strongly, but we were the better team towards the end. There was some very attacking football. We could have done better defensively. They have played surprisingly well. But it is just the start of a great era for them. They have some young players and are very motivated. They are playing Champions League football next term and that will be a great experience.feedback

Massimiliano Allegri

Seeing Khedira in the Coppa Italia final or against Crotone next week is impossible. We'll evaluate him day by day to see about the Champions League final.feedback

Vincent Kompany

I'm very happy. I've worked so hard, I've fought so hard for this. My motivation has always been high. I've never doubted myself. I've that happy feeling: look, I'm back again! I have always been rational. I know my situation and I know why I came back. As long as I feel that inner strength, I'll be all right. My only wish is that I could be part of the team that reaches that final goal [winning the Champions League]. One day it will happen – I'm sure.feedback

Piers Morgan - CNN

We are sixth in the table, we were dumped out of the Champions League for the eighth consecutive year at the last-16 stage. He has never even won the Champions League.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

In the end, when the game was difficult, when they were better than us and we were in trouble and not playing well, it was that mentality, that desire, that togetherness that made the boys fight until the end. The final means an opportunity to win a trophy, to be back in the Champions League, and to end the season in the perfect way because it is the last match of the season. Hopefully Crystal Palace don't need (anything from) the last game because I am going to make a lot of changes.feedback
