"That makes me really happy". "I repeat, if it is completed".
"He's a very important player and he doesn't always have to be the standout player". With Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah already in imperious form, that can only be good news.

"Probably the strongest team in Europe at the minute is Manchester City".
