"“We’re making strides forward, we’ve got a philosophy and we play to it. You’ve seen in the second half; it felt like the Stretford End was sucking that goal in, it was an amazing second goal especially by Garnacho.”"

"“I think you always feel more tired when you’re losing games,” he told club media.“The energy and the intensity comes from the spirit within the group.“We’ve got such a good group here who are pushing in the same direction and who want the best for the club, and that’s the most important thing.”"
