”A second ago I spoke to Pep Guardiola on the phone. Our head physio (Lee Nobes) worked for Manchester City at the start of the year but he wanted to win the Champions League… no, it’s a joke!!
”We promised each other that we will kick each other’s butts again next season. We will go for everything and see what we get.
”Getting 97 points in the Premier League and winning the Champions League is an unbelievable long way to go and we did it. That’s incredible.
”Now we’ve won something, we will carry on. We will win things. That is big. I am really happy.
