Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino are literally a defender's worst nightmare and we’re lucky to have them on our team.

Whether you’re playing the pass in behind or into feet, they'll turn it into a good ball.”

Not a lot of people spoke about the impact Joel Matip had in the last third of 2018/2019.

I don't see a lot of centre-backs in the world who were better in that period, impeccable, pretty much without any mistakes.”

The impact of VAR? More penalties for me. You will see that.

I don't like it though. I love football the way it is. It's alright to protect players from dangerous play but otherwise for me, I accept football with mistakes. That's how football gets more exciting. That's how people get more passionate about it."
