The Players Quotes

I learned my trade at Arsenal and became a footballer at Manchester City. Niall Quinn.

The fans are absolutely unbelievable at this club and I owe them so much.
Gio Kinkladze.

It's very different to Spain. The weather is obviously different and Manchester is colder. But it is a wonderful experience and one I want to treasure and take forward. David Silva on his arrival at Man City.

I am just hearing now about what was said. Everyone has their opinions in football. I am at a club with big ambitions. We know where we want to get and that's right up there. We missed out on the top four last season but Manchester City are better equipped to get there. Everything is set up here - from the backroom staff to the players. You want to be at a club that is successful and I can see Manchester City going to the top of the English game and winning trophies. James Milner.

You have to face facts. We have not brought quality in. One or two have done all right but not enough to take the team onto the next level. We can't gamble on players who have scored six goals in six games in a League in Belgium. I know a lot of the supporters who don't no whether to buy their season tickets. They go out and work hard. It is a lot of money to buy a season ticket here, and they are not getting value for money. Joey Barton.

Rooney is good but he's not the best in Manchester.Mario Balottelli

I'm crap. There's not another player at the club who can cross a ball as badly as me.Richard Edgehill.

But I am thriving on the responsibility, both on and off the field. If the lads are a bit down then it’s up to me to make sure they are in the right frame of mind. If things are not going well on the field then it’s up to me to lead by example. Sometimes in a game – even with the best will in the world – a striker can drift out for 10 minutes and then come back in to it. Now that I am captain, I can’t afford to do that. You have to be 100 per cent concentrated all the time. Carlos Tevez

There's no loyalty in football any more. The much travelled Craig Bellamy after he left City for Cardiff.

I socialise,I enjoy a laugh and a beer with the players,. You need to be a little detached.There are tough decisions to be made at times , and they are even tougher if you are closer. Peter Reid player- manager.
