MATCH QUOTES

โ€œThat is something very telling. โ€œThe whole bench went up and were very happy for him [Robert Pirรจs]. He is a popular fellow. They like him. He has still got the touch and the eye for the pass and he brings some fluency to the game with his technique. He has not got the legs of when he was 30 but he can still run and have an impact.โ€ Gรฉrard Houllier
