It feels good that I extended my stay [at Benfica] by one year. I enjoy playing for the club and feel I evolve every day there. It was an easy choice. Both parties were very happy and they wanted to give me a sign that they are satisfied with what I've done there. Much has been written [about Manchester United] but it's nothing I have focused on. I have always focused on what was important to me and that's the team [Benfica]. That [the rumours], makes no difference to me.feedback

Marcus Rashford

A lot of people think I came out of nowhere. And to be honest, this past year has gone by so quickly that I still can't believe it myself sometimes. One day during training with United last season, my team-mates told me that I'd been selected for the national team to go to Euro 2016. I literally didn't believe it. I thought they were joking. I'd only just made my debut for Manchester United a few months before. Phil Jones came up to me as we were heading into the changing rooms and said, 'I'm tellin' ya mate, you're going to France'.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

Cristiano Ronaldo was 27, [Angel] Di Maria was 23, [Karim] Benzema and [Gonzalo] Higuain were 23 or 24. It was the team that killed everyone. Why would I change that? Because the Manchester United team is different. It is slower. They do not have quick players and have a desire to have the ball, in order to be dominant with play.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

Zlatan Ibrahimovic needs touches of the ball in order to play. [Ander] Herrera, [Michael] Carrick and [Paul] Pogba, too. Sometimes, in the last 20 minutes, I explore other options, and I put Marcus Rashford on to go in another direction. But, generally, I try to make do with the qualities that my players have.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

My team plays in this way or that way because that corresponds to the players that I have. It is as simple as that. If I tried to play on the counter with Manchester United, I am in s**t. If you want to play possession with a team where the players dribble a lot, take the maximum risks, push forward quickly, I would kill the potential of the players.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

Despite the interest which has been shown from other clubs, for which I'm grateful, I want to end recent speculation and say that I am staying at Manchester United. I hope I will play a full part in helping the team in its fight for success on four fronts. It's an exciting time at the club and I want to remain a part of it.feedback

Bastian Schweinsteiger

I am sad to leave so many friends at Manchester United. But I am grateful to the club for allowing me the chance to take up the challenge at Chicago Fire.feedback

George Galloway

It's true I'm not local, but then neither was Sir Matt Busby. Neither was Sir Alex Ferguson nor Pep Guardiola nor José Mourinho. Like them I want to work for you, for Gorton, for Manchester. I am, like Sir Matt, a Scot of Irish background. There are plenty of us around Manchester. My 40-year relationship with Pakistan and Bangladesh, my 40 years with the Arabs, mean I can speak the language. I can talk the talk but I also walk the walk.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

You have to adapt to the reality of the club, its needs and its demands. It is called being intelligent. The priority is to establish relations of peace and love in a group, to create stability. Manchester United no longer has the super personalities like Roy Keane, Ryan Giggs or Paul Scholes. There is Wayne Rooney and Michael Carrick, who are the last faces of that generation and a new squad of players has to adapt.feedback

Ronald Koeman

The fans love Rom. Everybody loves Rom. Of course we want to keep the best players. We're in a good position in this project and you don't sell your best players. The decision of the referee about the red card was too harsh I believe. But it gave us more space to kill the game and we did that. We now have the opportunity in two weeks to play Liverpool and Manchester United. If we want to do something more special this season then we need to beat the teams above us.feedback

Mauricio Pochettino

It's easy to say we need better players on the bench behind Harry Kane, but it's complicated for offensive players who are behind Diego Costa, Harry Kane, Alexis Sanchez or Zlatan Ibrahimovic at big teams. He is motivated and confident. He is feeling a little bit of relief as his first goal from open play and that is important. I am happy in the way that he trained this week too. It is true that we will miss Harry, as he is one of the best strikers in the world. But what can we do now.feedback

Jamie Carragher

Mourinho had tested Conte before, goading him and sniping at him. It all started on the afternoon Chelsea dismantled Manchester United 4-0 in October, when Mourinho shouted down the Italian's ear at the end of the game and accused him of lacking respect. There were other issues, not least on February 11 when Mourinho said, Chelsea are a very good defensive team and defended well with lots of players. There was another dig last week, when Mourinho said he was, Surprised by the way Chelsea play.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

This season Mr Michael Oliver, he is a referee with fantastic potential, but with Manchester United we are a bit unlucky. In four matches, three penalties and one red card, and [the red card was] in such an early moment of the game. But, again, I cannot change that. When they have somebody that wins four Premier Leagues for them, I become number two. Until this moment Judas is number one.feedback

Dimitri Seluk

If we get a good offer from another club we will sign immediately. Mourinho is a very good manager and Toure played with Zlatan at Barcelona. If Manchester United make an offer I'll negotiate, no problem.feedback

Fergus Dowd

Spanish football would not have been covered as it is today by the UK and Irish media, so Patrick's achievements had fallen through the net. Also people in Spain are only starting to talk about the Spanish Civil War - a time which is significant to Patrick's story. This is a man of firsts; He was the first Irishman to captain Manchester United, the first and only Irishman to win La Liga and the first Irishman to captain Ireland to silverware.feedback

Roy Keane

I've never heard so much rubbish in my life. Why do we have to listen to that garbage? It's just utter nonsense what he's talking about. He's manager of Manchester United, one of the biggest clubs on the planet, the squad he's got, the players and he keeps moaning about fixtures and fatigue. We were just looking at some of the cup draws they've had. They've had an easy way in the cups, some good draws, a lot of home draws, and the guy is talking absolute nonsense.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

Zlatan could still be in Paris. Mkhitaryan could be at Borussia Dortmund. Pogba could be at Juventus. We were able to attract the players because they know that Manchester United sooner or later will get there.feedback

Mauricio Pochettino

It's easy to say we need better players on the bench behind Harry Kane, but it's complicated for offensive players who are behind Diego Costa, Harry Kane, Alexis Sanchez or Zlatan Ibrahimovic at big teams. He's very young and came from Holland, a different league, the adaptation is difficult but he's in the process to learn and improve. It's only his first season in England.feedback

Roy Keane

He's manager of Manchester United, one of the biggest clubs on the planet - the squad he's got, the players, and he keeps moaning about fixtures and fatigue. We were looking at some of the cup draws they have had. They have had an easy ride in the cups, a lot of good draws, a lot of home draws. The guy is talking absolute nonsense. I never heard such rubbish in all my life.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

Zlatan could still be in Paris. Mkhitaryan could be at Borussia Dortmund. Pogba could be at Juventus. We were able to attract the players because they know that Manchester United sooner or later will get there. It isn't easy for Pogba, The country is so different to Italian football. It is hard for him. I'm not disappointed at all. The most important thing is his personality. He is professional and he will improve for sure. Could he do it in the best league in the world? He has done it everywhere else. He's doing amazingly well.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

The gap between our true potential and the expectations we create… there is a gap. We are not ready to be Manchester United. We are not ready to win everything. Because of our nature – the players, myself, the will of the players – we are ready to fight for every game, point, every objective: that is no doubt. But there is a space between the general ambition of such a giant club and what we are, in reality.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

I am enjoying every moment of it. It is hard. It is difficult, but I knew that before. Manchester United has a name and a prestige and something magical in football that attracts everyone.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

The relation between our true potential and the expectations we create, there is a gap. We are not ready to be Manchester United. We are not ready to be a dominant force. We are not ready to try and win everything.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

Man Utd is very powerful. It doesn't need to be in the Champions League to attract the best players. Last summer, we got players who could be playing in the Champions League. Zlatan [Ibrahimovic] could be in Paris [with PSG], [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan could be in Borussia [Dortmund]. [Paul] Pogba could be at Juve. We were able to attract the players because they know Manchester United sooner or later will get there. If any player decides not to come because of that I am happy that they are not coming.feedback

Angel Di Maria

When I first arrived, I found a sad club. Manchester United sold players that I never would have sold, and bought players I never would have bought. I would never have sold Di Maria, Chicharito or Danny Welbeck, never, no chance. I think Manchester United are a powerful club, I don't think Manchester United need to play in the Champions League to attract the best players.feedback

Angel Di Maria

Honestly last summer we got players that could be playing in the Champions League, Zlatan could be in Paris, [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan could be in Borussia [Dortmund], Paul [Pogba] could be in Juventus, we were able to attract those players because they know sooner or later Manchester United will get there. If any player decides they do not want to come because of that, I am glad he is not coming.feedback

Marco Silva

Of course we do need to improve our performance away. It is not possible that we play this as two competitions – one at home and one away. It is normal that teams feel more comfortable playing at home, but we have to improve our away performances and results. In some games away from home we have shown progress, but the results haven't been good with only one good result at Manchester United recently. The other away results for me haven't been good and our last away performance at Leicester was not the best.feedback

Ray Wilkins

I just wish our Chelsea supporters, and I'm a Chelsea supporter, showed a little bit more class to Jose Mourinho. He is a good bloke but he is a football man, he wants his club to win. I just thought the other night against Manchester United they didn't show him the respect he merits. People will naturally be thinking: 'Hang on a second he was demonstrating stuff on the touchline against Chelsea'. Well, yes he was, but now he is employed by Manchester United.feedback

Sven-Goran Eriksson

If he takes a challenge like Manchester United, I could've bet that he would be successful.feedback

Anders Svensson

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a fantastic player, no one can take that away from him.feedback

Thibaut Courtois

We didn't know beforehand about United's aggression. You can expect Manchester to play one of two ways. They can play their footballing way but, obviously, without Anthony Martial and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, then they can play a different game.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

We have to be positive, the players were phenomenal but I refer to one because he's the one that the specialists enjoy to go after because, in their time, they were not getting 10 per cent of the money he is getting. It probably comes from envy, but for me Paul Pogba was by far the best player on the pitch.feedback

Morgan Schneiderlin

But after that for us it's just a case of trying to catch (Manchester United) because the most dangerous thing now is to be seventh and there's nothing to play for because our performance will drop dramatically.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

But I don't want to go in that direction. This season Mr Michael Oliver, he is a referee with fantastic potential, but with Manchester United we are a bit unlucky. In four matches, three penalties and one red card, and [the red card was] in such an early moment of the game.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

I just want to say that I'm really proud of my players, proud of the Manchester United fans. We have a very important match on Thursday [against Rostov in the Europa League] and I want to try to rest a little bit to prepare the team the best we can for Thursday's match and that's the most important thing. Then we can compare the decisions of these two yellow cards in this case the second yellow card with other ones that weren't given.feedback

Josh Ho-Sang

I think my style developed because I was really into Ronaldo when he first came in – I was like 9. I always liked the way he played, especially if you look at his Manchester United highlights.feedback

Antonio Conte

We could play also Sunday, or Saturday, if the federation [FA] decided it. But we are playing on Monday. I think that the federation showed great respect for Manchester United to play the last day available the FA Cup. There are four days to recover, and this game is an important game for us, for them. I think their formation will be very good. Also because, I repeat, United and City have the best squads in this league.feedback

Rio Ferdinand

[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

Antonio Conte

I think that the federation showed great respect for Manchester United, to play the last day available.feedback

Andreas Pereira

When I came, I told myself: it's not Manchester United. It's a good club, a good league, but not the best in the world. At PSV we were always attacking and at United we always wanted the ball, then I came here and we're defending. It's hard to adapt, but it is good for me: I learnt a lot.feedback

Antonio Conte

We are working to try to find the right solution for the whole team, not only for Paul Pogba. It was the same against West Ham, when we played against Andy Carroll, and there were questions about whether we would try and stop him.feedback

Aitor Karanka

Pep is not the best coach in the world. The best coach in the world is Jose Mourinho. He has shown it at Porto, at Inter Milan, Chelsea and Real Madrid and Manchester United. He was the best [in La Liga] and he still is the best. I've never worked with Pep, but Jose started this season with some criticism, but he has already won two trophies for Man United. Jose is the best for me. I think Pep has to win the Premier League to prove [he is one of the best]. I think he has to win a trophy [this season].feedback

Antonio Conte

I think Manchester United, with City, have the best squad in the league. They have a lot, a number of great players with great talent and great experience to win. For sure, it can be a really tough game, for us and for them. I think that now, for us, it is better. We have a good identity, a good team. So we are showing good football. But, for sure, it will be a really tough game against United. We are facing a good team, very strong.feedback

Antonio Conte

I repeat: John is doing great work this season, on and off the pitch. And, for me, he is very important because he is the captain. He is working very well on the pitch and helping me a lot in the changing room, transferring the right message. For sure, he is an important player for us. I have to decide the starting XI and I will try to make the best decision for the team. We want to go into the next round, in the same way Manchester United do, so I will try and make the best decision for the team. It's normal.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

Manchester United is too big, it is the winner of the competition. It is not Chelsea's fault that we were given this Monday match so we have to make changes for sure because we play Monday and Rostov play Sunday, but we can't go to Stamford Bridge with a Nicky Butt team. We have to keep getting points in the Premier League to let us go to the last month with that door open, and in the Europa League if we manage to go through this round you get to the quarter-final and then you feel the door is open.feedback

Alan Shearer

I think it is a great opportunity for the youngsters in the United team like [Marcus] Rashford, [Anthony] Martial, [Jesse] Lingard to see a guy with such experience still have the desire and hunger to train every day. Though Manchester United have won the first trophy of the season and are on very good run of form, I don't think they will finish in the top four. They are dependent on Ibrahimovic. They did get the rub of the green against Southampton in the EFL Cup final with the disallowed goal. My personal opinion is that Man United won't finish in the top four.feedback

Alan Shearer

He's only 31 years old but he started very early. He was 16 when he debuted for Everton. I'm sure he will have options and I think he said he did not want to go to another Premier League club. He has another 16 months left at Man United, plus the option of another year, so he could stay at Old Trafford and it might not be easy to force him out if at all they want to do that. It also depends on whether he wants to stay or leave. Without doubt he will have offers, but I'd be surprised if he was at Manchester United next season.feedback

Alan Shearer

What surprises me is the number of games he's playing. I expected him to come to Manchester United and make an impact. I didn't expect him to come and have an influence in every game he's playing. He is their talisman and what I admire about him is that I retired just before I turned 36 and I know what it takes to get up every day and have that desire to play against defenders 26 and 27 years old at their peak trying to kick you. That is what I admire about him.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

Luke Shaw, I have good news for you, he is selected tomorrow. He is in the list. One step up from not being selected. Not even on the bench. Now again he is like Wayne (Rooney) - playing or on the bench. He becomes an option again for us. Okay. I only can say that in the final, with the result 2-2, with the team in difficulty, with the team possibly going to play 40 more minutes, Rooney was ready to go onto the pitch.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

I think Manchester United learned I'm not the monster that you say I am. I'm not such a bad guy, an arrogant guy, a difficult person to work with.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

I think Manchester United learn I am not the monster that you [sections of media] say I am. I'm not such a bad guy, an arrogant guy, a difficult person to work with. At least until now nobody at the training ground runs away when I arrive. So people are quite happy to have me around and to work with me, the relation with the players is very good and with my owners and my board the relation I don't think is just professional, it's also a relation of trust and a relation that goes further than the contract, the manager, the owner, the board.feedback

José Mourinho - Manchester United

Luke is selected for tomorrow so you won't need to have the guys at The Lowry [team hotel] to take the pictures to see if he's selected. He's in the list, so one step up from not being in the final. Not even on the bench and now again, like Wayne [Rooney], he's selected, playing or on the bench. He becomes again an option to us.feedback

Ronald Koeman

It's all about what the player likes, what Manchester United need to do and we are not involved in that project. Every player who we feel can make the team stronger is welcome at Everton.feedback

Ronald Koeman

I still think Wayne Rooney is playing at a high level and he made a good choice staying at Manchester United and in the Premier League.feedback

Jean-Philippe Grandin

I hope that he (Zlatan Ibrahimovic) will come but after a match, not before because you need a good siesta to digest afterwards.feedback

Stefan Grobe - Euronews

America has no football tradition whatsoever, they even call it soccer. For the real fans, Manchester United is a surrogate religion and Ferguson's farewell a very emotional affair.feedback

James Franey - Euronews

It took Sir Alex Ferguson more than three years to win a major trophy as manager of Manchester United. He even faced down a campaign for him to be sacked. Supporters of David Moyes said he needed time to turn it around. But English football is a very different sport from all those years ago. Money and commercial success mean everything. The club's failure to qualify for next season's Champion League will cost it some 50 million euros.feedback

Roy Hodgson

I gave it a lot of thought but Wayne is an obvious choice. He deserves it – his commitment to the cause, his experience. He has captained England in the past and, of course, he has that responsibility at Manchester United now.feedback

Joachim Loew

Portugal is filled with stars who play in big clubs like Real and Manchester United. They have Ronaldo and Nani for their spectacular attack and also a very good defence with Pepe just to mention one. This will be a very exciting and interesting group.feedback

Gleb Shatunovsky

In a Manchester United v Olympiakos clash both teams will be happy with the draw. Since Sir Alex Ferguson's departure last season Man United, under new coach David Moyes, appear to have lost their fear factor. Olympiakos are comfortably leading the Greek Superleague and with Javier Saviola spearheading their attack they could prove to be a dark horse.feedback
