The derby is perhaps more special because my responsibility is bigger because of every supporter. Also we need three points in the league because we want to be closer to the other teams, like Tottenham, and we have this challenge.” “Every match at the Emirates is a very big match. We can watch different games there but it always has a very big atmosphere with our supporters.

“I learned in Spain with one coach, Javi Irureta. He trained in Deportivo La Coruna and had a big career as a coach.”

“[When] he was my coach, he said to us: ‘When I change it is because I want some change. Maybe it is positive, maybe it is negative but [it is] change.’”
