Last quote by Rio Ferdinand

When he was the same age as Marcus Rashford, he'd won two golden boots in the Premier League and scored 50 goals. Even look at the likes of [Kylian] Mbappé. If he's going for that type of money now what would [Owen] be going for?feedback

I have huge respect for this sport and I will work to give it the respect it deserves.feedback

Sep 19 2017

Neymar in a red Man United shirt? Number 7, woah, or number 11.feedback

Dirty, it would have been dirty but it wasn't to be.feedback

Aug 15 2017 - Manchester United

Neymar's up for £196m… Man United are one of the richest clubs in the world. I would have loved to have seen him go to Manchester United.feedback

Jul 10 2017 - Facebook

I wanted this ridiculous talent alongside me for years to come on a day to day basis.feedback

Jun 25 2017

I don't think he really wants to play as a No.9 because he can be tied down there and he can be left a bit isolated. He likes being able to come from the wide areas where he gets a little bit of space and that's where he can do his magic. But he used to stand out wide and want to get the ball and take people on. He's not that player no more.feedback

Jun 25 2017

He wants to get the ball in areas where he can hurt teams and have end product, which is goals or assists, and at the moment there's no better man on the planet doing that.feedback

Hahahahaha more lies from Lil Patty inside the #MUFC first team dressing room @patrice.evra.feedback

May 24 2017 - Manchester United

[The match] is an opportunity for the players to show solidarity with Manchester. Playing after such an unforgiving and devastating act, I don't think it matters whether you are a red or you are a blue, you want these guys to go out and represent Manchester and show the togetherness this city has got.feedback

May 24 2017 - Manchester United

I am obviously devastated, Manchester's somewhere I have made home for 12 years, nearly 13, my kids were born here, made many friends there, still in contact with many of them. The character of the city has never been the question. If this had happened in any other city in England I think it would be the same solidarity, the same coming together, the same outcry because in this country we've got people who show a sense of unity when the chips are down.feedback

May 24 2017 - Manchester United

It will dawn on the players after that this is such a huge game, not only for Manchester United Football Club, but also for a player to show they can bring a community, a city, a country together by playing and showing that whatever goes on they will go out there and perform to the best of their ability.feedback

May 10 2017

If he goes to a Real Madrid, Barca, etc, he isn't going to play every game. He'll be a squad player.feedback

Hazard has improved his movement and, of course, he is Chelsea's ace, just like Cristiano was ours. Playing against him, I found that when he received the ball his awareness of where people are was brilliant and his low centre of gravity meant he could roll people. Patrice Evra is small but a superb specimen who used to physically dominate wingers because of his strength, speed and low centre of gravity. But then he came up against Hazard and you were thinking, Wow, this kid – you don't want to be coming up against him too much, Pat.feedback

But then he came up against Hazard and you were thinking, Wow, this kid – you don't want to be coming up against him too much, Pat. Pound for pound, Hazard was the same shape, strength and size and he was rolling Patrice inside and outside.feedback

He's got that experience now. He knows what he needs to do in the big games and have that cutting edge and make the difference. He does it with his eyes closed.feedback

Apr 12 2017

This team don't press like they did under Pep Guardiola. I know it is a different manager [Luis Enrique] but they did [do it under him] for a little period of time. These guys look like they don't have any idea or desire to press. That is seven goals conceded in their last two away games. They got out of jail last time but I think that card has been used up. I don't think they will get another chance. The difference between this Juventus side and the Paris Saint-Germain side is experience. This is an experienced, well-drilled, well-groomed Juventus side.feedback

Apr 12 2017

They have got the bit between their teeth and the confidence is flowing through the team, from [Gianluigi] Buffon at the back right through the team to [Paulo] Dybala and [Gonzalo] Higuain up front – they were fantastic to a man.feedback

Apr 12 2017

Yes [they need some new players]. There are a lot of players here who could not have got into this Barcelona team three years ago. Too many names to mention. There are five or six in this team who shouldn't even be putting on the shirt because the way that they played, the intensity and the quality is not on the same planet. These are the players who are supposed to be feeding the front three, but they are not getting the ball to them quickly enough. Defensively they don't look like they have any individuals in there who want to defend and collectively they are not doing it.feedback

Apr 06 2017

He's like I was at 24: a great sponge. He's from a great family and had a good school upbringing. He's very mature for his age – one you'd want your daughter to bring home. He never blames others, which is refreshing, because not all the younger generation of players are like that. Michael is a throwback – and other youngsters should look at him for inspiration.feedback

Apr 06 2017

I think in these situations you need to have the ability to be able to get your feelings out, I think it doesn't just help you, it helps all the people close, because they then feel more comfortable, because everyone just feels awkward.feedback

Mar 29 2017

Normally their mum had the answers to their problems.feedback

Mar 28 2017

I don't think I've grieved properly. I've not given myself that time to sit down and really flush everything out and go through it… I need help.feedback

Mar 27 2017

I look at my children - and that brings you right back into sadness again because they haven't got a mum. I was never suicidal in my head but this situation brought me to understand people who have suicide thoughts (sic). I wouldn't do that because I have three beautiful children. I'd been starting conversations with them...and they would just shut me down. At the time when Rebecca tried to talk to me about certain things moving forward, if the worst case scenario happened, I kind of used to shut down.feedback

Mar 27 2017

One person may take six months. Another person may take 10 years. There isn't a time when you can say, Yeah I'm over it. Putting a number on it is the wrong thing to do.feedback

Mar 26 2017

Until you've won something you can't go out and do stuff like that.feedback

Mar 21 2017

I used to look at people or read stories and think, how can you be so selfish and commit suicide or attempt to commit suicide or whatever.feedback

Mar 21 2017

At the beginning I was drinking a lot at night time. We have a lady, luckily enough, who lives with us, she would go to bed and I'd come back down in the middle of the night and probably drink a lot for the first three or four months. But I would get up and do the school run and stuff.feedback

Mar 21 2017

That's when I started to kind of smile a bit more and think maybe there is a chance I'm going to be happy one day again.feedback

Mar 21 2017

There's all this organisation and structure within a family home that men don't see.feedback

Mar 15 2017

It helped Sevilla that he went off, he was playing at testimonial pace, slowing everything down.feedback

Mar 14 2017

This is the height I have to be at to talk to you bro!feedback

Mar 14 2017

I told you before it will mess you up bro! Start now and you might play until you are 50!!!feedback

Mar 12 2017 - Manchester United

[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

Mar 05 2017

An absolute machine. A devastating finisher. What it's down to is not just talent, he aligns that with sheer dedication and hard work and that's how you get your rewards. You can see this guy is relentless. I spoke to him in midweek, what is it that actually makes you who you are? 'Hard work and determination' is all he said. And it's true, it's the basics that got him where he is and then it's the talent that separates him.feedback
