It all boils down to two things: Desire and dedication.

Winning the UEFA Champions League, Bundesliga, and DFB Pokal treble with Bayern taught me that in football nothing is impossible. We may have a young team at Nice; our aim is to qualify for Europe.”

There’s this image of Memphis Depay with flashy cars, blings, but these can't be further away from who he really is.

If anything Memphis is a fantastic professional: He's always respectful, always working hard, in fact when he's not getting minutes the kid worked doubly hard in training to improve his chances. It didn't pay off at Man Utd but he's doing well now and I only have good things to say about him.”

Dimitri Payet would stay back after training to work on set-pieces at West Ham, every day without fail.

I remember him scoring a record number of Premier League free-kicks in a season or something like that. I do fancy myself from a dead-ball situation, but Dimi’s simply on another level—and deservedly so.”
