 “Quotes of the Week” for the fans worldwide

Each week we go back to the most significant reactions over the weekend action in all major European championships. Either the players, the coaches, or the managing board, we bring what nobody else does every weekend and for you to enjoy. All words are literally taken from the actors of the beautiful game with no alterations.

Our  “Quotes of the Week” this weekend are mainly dominated by the last signings – Bale and Ozil among a plethora of moves over the last 48  hours.

Ex-Hotspur Gareth Bale on his 91 millions euros move to Real Madrid:

“It’s great to be here, I wasn’t expecting so many fans to turn up to support me (20,000), the holidays are just over and for so many to turn out and come and support me and wish me luck was a nice welcome, it was absolutely amazing. They made me feel very welcome and very home already, so thanks to them for that. It’s great to be here. My dream come true and hopefully now I do good business on the pitch”.

Ex-Real Madrid Mezut Ozil on his move to Arsenal:

“I’m really looking forward to it because I have the faith of the coach. I had spoken to him at length on the telephone and he explained his plans and that he has faith in me and that is what I need as a player. I’m also looking forward to being on the same team as Lukas Podolski and Per Mertesacker. I’m looking forward to the new challenge there”.

Ex-Everton Fellaini on his move to Manchester United:

“It’s the biggest club in the world so of course I wanted to join this club. I tried everything to join the club. It’s a big moment for me. I waited for a long time, I’ve worked hard for this and I’m very happy to join this big club, this great club. I hope to do everything for this club”.

Ex-Anzhi Samuel Eto’o on his move to Chelsea:

“I am very happy to be here but also anxious because I want to get playing as soon as possible. It wasn’t a hard decision. I saw the qualities Chelsea have, and I was very happy with Jose Mourinho before, so when the opportunity came, I was very happy to take it. one of my last dreams as a professional is to come and play in England and see if I can have the same success as in my previous clubs. I don’t see it as a final challenge, but to have a good time, enjoy my football, and have success with this team”.

 ex-Real on his return to AC Milan

“Four years have passed and now I’m back. It’s been two weeks that I thought if I could come back, a return to Milan would be ideal for me. In the last few days, I’ve been dreaming of hearing the fans sing my name in the San Siro again.  just want to do well for Milan, my team. I was very sad to leave this team and now it’s great to be back. I’m very happy.”
