Criticism of Cholo: "I can't talk about other people's opinions. Simeone has plenty of credit. He has the player who fight for titles and and he has a reputation of improving. He'll decide when he goes."

Cholo's assistant manager: "These rumours happen. I just keep playing. I know the dressing room, but I don't know if it's the moment. If it comes, I'll make a decision. Not, with Cholo, I speak less. I spent eight years with him helping. I would learn a lot from Cholo although I know how he works. It would be a masterclass and if the situation arose, I'd think about it. With Xavi, they're poles apart. But like he has given us results, Xavi has given us results here in Qatar."

Xavi's chance to manage Barcelona: "We didn't know until he told us. I think he was sure. Xavi knows that the opportunity will come."

Abidal and the Barcelona situation: "The whole thing has been a circus. These situations make Barcelonismo look bad." 

Cerezo's comments on Anfield: "He is putting pressure on. He's used to the Wanda Metropolitano."
