"I was happy with the result and the performance - it's important to play three games with a lot of quality. I think we deserved to win because we created more chances and were more fluent and mobile than Liverpool today, but at 1-1 I think we had a mental problem because we were scared to lose."
"We know it's in our hands to be very consistent. There was a lot at stake today but we responded after Wednesday with a great win."
... and on David Beckham:
"I rate him as a player but it doesn't mean we want to sign him. I'm more interested in keeping the players we have here because I am very happy with them. I am ruling out any signing at the moment because I have a lot of young players to come through - and they will be very, very good."
