[There were suggestions that Mutu elbowed Sinisa Mihajlovic just before the spitting incident] It was humiliating to be spat at but I didn’t react as I put the team before any personal vendetta. He has a very poor sense of humour. Some exchanges were made but he couldn’t take it, so he got violent. It was unprovoked and he started it

[Quotes on Zlatan Ibrahimovic] We used to sleep in the same room before games. One night, he woke up. Ibra told me, ‘Adi, wake up! I had a nightmare. I dreamed Ronaldo was better than me!’ He only went back to sleep after I told him, ‘No, Zlatan, no! You are the best in the world! Calm down!’

[Things came to a head when Mutu reported for international duty in October after missing three weeks of action for Chelsea due to injury] Mourinho said I was injured but it’s not true. I have been in good condition for five days and he knew that. I don’t care about being fined. I want everyone to know that the national team is the most important thing for me. I’ll play against the Czech Republic at any risk. Such a match is so important for the national team that I cannot miss it

[Mutu had a lot of questions to answer over his involvement with drugs] I am not hooked on drugs. I categorically deny this. The only reason I took what I took was because I wanted to improve my sexual performance. It may be funny but it is true. I did not take cocaine. I took something to make me feel good

[He showed his compassionate side in 2013 when he revealed plans to adopt a baby rescued from a Chinese sewage pipe] I couldn’t figure out how to carry on living, how to eat my breakfast, when I saw this story on TV. He’s a special child. When I saw the baby I said: ‘I must adopt him, he has been sent to me by God’. Just look at this poor little fellow. He made such a strong impression on me. I told my wife we have to help him, we have to do everything we can. I never thought I would adopt a baby, I had no plan concerning that, but I just know I have to help this one

[He attributed his calmness to his time in Florence, a tranquil setting far removed from the distractions he found unavoidable in London] Florence is home for me. People here love me and I have forgotten about the cocaine and my sad time in London. Recently my agent Alessandro Moggi presented me with some offers from Premiership clubs, but without meaning any offence, I would not go back to London if they paid me a fortune in gold

I’ve got nothing against English people - they are very nice and they are crazy for football - and the Premier League is clearly a great competition, but nowhere is as good as Florence for me

[Adrian Mutu reveals his biggest regret in football was losing to Rangers in Uefa Cup semi-final] If I could replay one single game from the whole of my career, it would be the second leg of the semi-final against Rangers in the UEFA Cup.

In the final moments of the game, I had a great chance to score with a header, but I put too much power on it and the ball didn’t go in. We ended up losing on penalties and I often think of that moment. I am convinced we would have won the UEFA Cup if we had got to the Final that year. Maybe one day I can make up for it because it would be my dream to manage Fiorentina in the future
