“Money doesn’t score goals.”

– Ar­jen Robben dis­miss­ing the no­tion that just be­cause PSG cost a for­tune they’d get the bet­ter of Bay­ern Mu­nich in the Cham­pi­ons League. In the end? Money scored three goals to none. “He’s just a one-season won­der.” – Spurs fans at Hud­der­s­field on Satur­day, hav­ing a right gig­gle at those who reck­oned Harry Kane’s light would burn briefly.

“I’m a bit in­jured. I’ll try to avoid sim­i­lar sit­u­a­tions in the fu­ture.”

– A slightly mor­ti­fied Va­len­cia coach Marcelino af­ter pulling his ham­string while cel­e­brat­ing his side’s La Liga win­ner against Real So­ciedad.

“He is one of the most in­cred­i­ble man­agers and peo­ple, one of the most suc­cess­ful man­agers in foot­ball. I love Carlo – Carlo is the best for me.”

– David Beck­ham of­fer­ing his sup­port to Carlo Ancelotti af­ter he was sacked.
