MATCH QUOTES

โ€œI thought we had signed a specialist right back. โ€œI didnโ€™t realise he can score goals of that quality as well, but what I like about him is that he can play. It was a fantastic debut. He showed great composure and it was really a goal of individual brilliance, just as our second was a wonderful team effort. โ€œWe could probably have put the game to bed a little bit earlier, but when we went down to 10 men we just had to hang on to what we had. โ€œAt times we could play football, at other times we just had to dig in and defend. The important thing is that we stuck together, kept a certain level, and put in a performance to please our fans, who I must say backed us magnificently.โ€ Gรฉrard Houllier
