Here's our round-up of the manager's quotes. For the headlines, visit our Digest page:

on the Africa Cup of Nations...
I will have a very close eye on that. It is always interesting, you can discover players. It is maybe the only international competition today where you do not know all the players. This time in South Africa you will have Ethiopia - if I ask you to name five Ethiopian players, I am sure you will have a problem.

on Arshavin and Squillaci's futures…
No news at all.

on Bendtner's loan at Juventus…
He had a bad injury with his abductors and needed surgery and will not play before March. He is on loan at Juventus until the end of the season.

on the prospect of Rangers in English football…
Yes [I would welcome them] but you would not want to destroy Scottish football and Rangers and Celtic in England would destroy the Scottish game.
