on the build-up to Tottenham's goal
"They [Eboue and Gilberto] collided with each other, it's true, and with a player from Tottenham. They can collide with one of our players or not. When they went down, we kicked the ball out - it doesn't matter with whom you collide."

on the battle for fourth place being over
"No, I do not go as far as that. I just say Tottenham played well today, especially in the first half."

on the princple of kicking the ball out for an injured player
"At the moment, people are fair play enough to do it and to respect the convention. If it becomes a rule, the difficulty of that problem is that everybody can gain time and cheat with the spirit of the game."

on the Sheffield United incident
"Yes, we took advantage of it and then we asked for the game to be replayed."

on the injury to Phillipe Senderos
"I don't know, he has a knee problem. I think he will be out for Tuesday."
