    “Manchester United are one of the top three football clubs in the world, no doubt about it. But the football club is one thing and the team’s credentials going into a a competition are another thing entirely. We have a giant on our chest, which is really heavy, but we don’t compare our potential to the biggest clubs in Europe right now. We’ll take it step by step and be humble.”


    “Because Manchester United is a real giant, it doesn’t matter if the club is somewhat far away from that level for three, four, five or 10 years. It doesn’t matter - the club will always be a giant. But our job is to try to bring the football club back to that stature. That’s really difficult these days. Before, the giants were the powerful ones economically, and now there are small clubs in terms of prestige and history, who are giants economically. That changes absolutely everything. I want the team to be on a par with the club’s history, which is something I’ve been lucky enough to feel at every club - there was the same kind of feeling at Inter and at Real Madrid. We’re going to do that, step by step. Last season, we won trophies. Playing against the European champions, it’s like we’re back at the theatre, back at that level. This is where we want to be. We’ll improve the team and try to be at that level, to constantly be improving. And I think we’re going to reach that level as a football team in the next couple of years.”


    “The first step is to try to finish in the top three. If we manage that, we'll try to finish in the top two. Then, when you're in the Champions League last 16 draw, anything can happen.”
