[on Rio Ferdinand] What a player. Quite simply the best centre-back I’ve come across

[on Nemanja Vidic of Manchester United] Vida, simply the best out and out defender I’ve seen. Aggression and desire to win at all costs, scared centre forwards to death!

[Michael Carrick on being contacted by players who have also experienced depressive-like emotions after He speaks openly about the issue in his autobiography] The fact some people have been in contact makes me glad I came out and said what I did. If someone wants to speak to me, I will try and help them. Even if it helps someone else without me even speaking to them, it is a bonus

[Michael Carrick thinks with players coming back and the arrival of Fernandes they have a perfect blend in midfield] I think sometimes we’ve been forced where the lads who’ve been fit have played and done well. When Nemanja [Matic] and Fred have played they’ve done ever so well, they’ve done terrific as a two and complimented each other and blended really well.
It’s about getting the right mix. Certain games suit certain things, which is something for us as staff and Ole to decide what fits a certain game. I do think all of sudden now with everyone fit and Bruno coming into the squad we’ve got a lovely variety to choose from
The beauty of it is the variety and the different options the boys give you. They’ve all got their strengths, but they can play together, there are combinations in there that can play in twos and threes together, but they all bring something different, which is the perfect blend and balance. I’m looking forward to seeing it
