The Irish Times - Monday - Sport - - Soccer -

“It is like you are with your wife and you are hold­ing hands, walk­ing down the street. But be­cause you are so hand­some, an­other woman is look­ing at you. But your wife is so proud and, rather than wor­ry­ing, she is so happy to be with you and falls more in love with you.”

– Spurs man­ager Mauri­cio Po­chet­tino feel­ing the love thanks to those ru­mours link­ing him with the Real Madrid job.

“If you look, Ramos, he has many more mis­takes than me.”

– Just when Ser­gio thought his week couldn’t get any worse, De­jan Lovren reck­ons the Real Madrid man is even more er­ror-prone than him­self. “Unai Emery had a big task af­ter what felt like 50 years of Arsene Wenger.” – Jür­gen Klopp on the close to in­ter­minable reign of Unai’s pre­de­ces­sor. “I was calm. I started by be­ing pos­i­tive, say­ing it was im­pos­si­ble to play worse so the sec­ond half was go­ing to be bet­ter for sure.” – Jose Mour­inho on his up­beat half-time chat with his play­ers on Satur­day.
