On Dubai

“Very good – unbelievable facilities, the prince’s private facilities are better than any football club in the world. Unbelievable conditions to work, nice weather, three days of really, really good training. Hopefully we can improve our level because I really think it was good.”

On Conte ‘little man’ comments

“When a person insults another, you can expect a response or you can expect silence. The first time he insulted me, I had a response, a response that I know touched the point where he really feels hurt. Then he insulted me for a second time and now I change. Now, contempt and, for me, contempt means end of the story.”

On Sanchez rumours

“I don’t think it’s ethical or correct to be speaking about players of other clubs. If somebody speaks of one of my players, to tell we are interested or not interested – this kind of thing – I wouldn’t be very happy. Sanchez is an Arsenal player. At the general level, I can say I told you myself, the Manchester United owners don’t believe in the January market. We don’t believe in signing a player just to do something. What we believe really is some players in football world, if you have a chance to sign them – it doesn’t matter if it is in January, March or July – you have to try. But in relation to Alexis Sanchez, I don’t say a word. The only word I can say is the same that everybody says – he’s a phenomenal player.”

On Zlatan

“He consulted other doctors and other opinions and we all made the decision to stop treatment. When he’s feeling really good, he comes back to work. The date for him to be back training was around the end of January/beginning of February, so let’s hope his feelings are better.”
