Quotes of the week – Champions League Day 3 (2)
A fabulous quadruple from Zlatan Ibrahimovic highlighted the second night of Day 3. All giants have won and players from different teams speak about their game.
Real Madrid 2-1 Juventus
Iker Casillas – GK Real: We have taken an important step towards qualifying for the next round. It was not easy, even though they had ten players for some of the second half. We have nine points from three matches and now we are going to Turin with the idea of at least not losing, which would be a good result and put us through to the next round.
Manchester United 1-0 Real Sociedad
David Moyes – MU: “It was a job well done, a good performance,” he declared. “I was frustrated we couldn’t kill them off because we had the same on Saturday, with a goal in the last minute. Today we had that feeling around us, but if we had scored five or six today it wouldn’t have been out of place. We had an awful lot of opportunities and didn’t finish it off.
Bayern Munich 5-0 Plzen
Pep Guardiola – Bayern: “I’m pleased because we played well. We have nine points and we’re in a good position to make the next round. We can take a giant stride in Plzen two weeks from now.”
Arjen Robben: “We played well, but Plzen didn’t make it hard for us. We’ll soon face more difficult opponents.”
Anderlecht 0-5 Paris Saint-Germain
Laurent Blanc – PSG: “There have been a lot of positive things in all areas of game tonight. We wanted to confirm our first two victories, including the reference match against Benfica (3-0). The players were at level and showed they had everything tonight. Ibrahimovic is in excellent shape and he scores a lot of goals. Four tonight are exceptional. Difficult to say which one was the best”.
CKSA Moscow 1-2 Manchester City
Manuel Pellegrini – City: “It’s important, it’s not the last game, it’s very important that we have the next two games at home – we go into them knowing that if we win, we qualify,”. I told the players before the game that if we do not win, we must not lose this game – we are not in the next round but it’s an important step.”
