Pre-Match Press Conference Transcript of David Moyes

Q. So David, what are your thoughts on tomorrow’s game?

Moyes: Really looking forward to the game – second leg, quarterfinal of the Champions League, with the opportunity to try and reach the semifinal! Its a massive game, one which all the players are looking forward to, and we’ll do everything we can to reach the semifinal.

Q. David, is this your hardest test as a manager? If you were to win it, would it be your greatest ever victory?

Moyes: Yeah, it’s the hardest task because of the level of the opposition, level of the competition and the stage of the competition – means that of course it’s the hardest game. And there’s a lot of top players on show from both sides. But, I’ll do everything I possibly can to help the players get a result on the night.

Q. How much of a boost was it that Wayne was able to train?

Moyes: Yeah, he was able to train. He’s massively keen to be involved. But he’s not trained all week – so we need to be wary of that but we’ll do everything we possibly can. He’s happy to take an injection to play in the game which, I think, it shows you his feeling about the game, about the club and, we need him as well – he’s a really important player to the team.

Q. David, you’re strategy worked very well in the opening leg at Old Trafford. Can we expect  a similar approach maybe tomorrow evening?

Moyes: Well, I’d like to have more possession, I’d like to have more of the ball. I’d like to have a bigger effect in the game – and my plans will be to do that. But they were also my plans in the first game as well – the quality of Bayern at times was very good. And you also have to respect your opponents, and on the night, they did some good things. But, I expect us to play better than we did in the first leg, and I believe we can play better than we did in the first leg. And to get through, we probably will, as well.

Q. David, getting through, and getting to the final is the way that your players can play in the Champions League next season. When you look at them, do you sense that they want to hold onto this level of football for another year?

Moyes: Well, I think the Champions League is a competition all sides are trying to achieve – by reaching it. And it’s no different at United. I think its a competition – we’ve been one of the most successful in Europe, and its a competition we want to try and continue in. It’s a difficult ask through our league position this year, but we’ll try and do it any way we can.

Q. David, in the first leg, Vidic and Rio Ferdinand were outstanding for you. Can you emphasize how much their experience means in these sort of games for you?

Moyes: Well, we’ll need a very good performance from everybody. It’s a game where you won’t be able to carry any passengers. But, it’s also a game that everybody’s really looking forward to, all the players are prepared for it. We prepared well for this game by beating Aston Vil… (smiles) by beating Newcastle at the weekend, I should say. And I feel that the players are going into the game in a good frame of mind. We’ve given ourselves every opportunity – we’ve done all we can to prepare for the game. So, we have to go into this game knowing that its a cup final for us. We want to be in the Champions League final, but first of all we’ve got to win this final, which is the second leg tie against Munich and from that point of view, we can’t leave anything at all. We have to make sure we go through on the night.

Q. David, what kind of statement do you think it would make about this football club, which has had criticism this season, if you were to beat the champions and go through to the semifinal. And secondly, if you weren’t to, and it was to be the Europa League next year, would you embrace that competition as well?

Moyes: Well, I think the only thing my focus has been towards is getting through in this game. I think to talk about things that have gone on – the league or anything else that’s happened – I think it would be better just looking forward to this game and preparing for it. And I think we have done as well – we’ve got the players ready and focused on this one. They know the job at hand is a big task, but I think it’s one that we’re all relishing. I think it’s the sort of game that United over the years have been involved in and had a good record. And we’re going to have to try and do that again.

Q. David, what’s the actual injury that Wayne’s got? What did the scans show? Is there any long term danger by giving him this injection, potentially?

Moyes: Well, we think it’s okay because we wouldn’t do anything wrong or we wouldn’t do anything ‘medically’ wrong. We take the advice from our doctors and the people who advise us. Wayne – everybody knows the character he is, they know the type of player he is and he’s determined to play. And if he’s determined, well, we’d be mad not to give him the opportunity to do so.

Q. David, how does it affect your tactical approach to the game when you know you have to score, otherwise you’re out?

Moyes: Well, it doesn’t alter an awful lot. Because if Bayern score, we need to score one goal as well. So our tactical approach would have been the same – we’re going to go in there and we’re going to try to win the game, it has to be. But we have to do that from a technically good position – the players I should say, they have to be technically good on the ball. We need to do better than we did in the first leg with the ball when we have it. But I do think we need the same spirit, the same determination to make sure that we get ourselves a good position.

Q. David, for all of Bayern’s reputation, three of our big four – what we call our big four – have won here in the last 20 months, one in the final. Can this have any bearing upon this or not?

Moyes: Well, I think that will be something that will be more in Bayern’s mind that the English teams have come here and have quite a good record. And they’ll have that doubt in their mind. Obviously, they’re European Champions but they also have a question mark about the games they’ve had to play here against the English sides. So, we’ll try and use it to our advantage. But, we all need to play well. We know we all need to be very good tomorrow night, and our aim is to try and do that.

Pre-Match Press Conference Transcript of Darren Fletcher

Q. You’ve obviously had your disappointments, Darren, in this competition – three finals, and you didn’t play in any of them. You’ve got a personal incentive to keep going – I know that’s not your main priority, but it is particularly important to you, isn’t it?

Fletcher: Yeah, of course. For whatever reasons, I’ve not managed to play in a final. I’ve just spoken about getting to three different circumstances have prevented me from that. Its been a dream of mine since I was a small boy, to play in the Champions League final. So, a win tomorrow night obviously takes us into the semifinals and gets us closer to achieving that. But, its more important the club and the team get there, rather than the individuals. When the team, or if we do get there, then you do your best in the games, and you hope that you’re selected. As I said before, the most important thing for us is to win tomorrow night and get ourselves in the semi finals and then, we’ll take it from there.

Q. Darren, you played in this game in 2010 when you took the lead and lost with Wayne being injured. Do you look back on that tie as a missed opportunity? Because if you’d gone through to the semifinal, you could have gone to the finals.

Fletcher: Yeah, massively – it’s a big disappointment looking back because there was nothing in the game out here. We lost two late goals, quite sloppy. And then after dominating the second leg, we were unfortunate to go out, I think. Circumstances weren’t with us on the night after a great first half performance. So yeah, there is regret but there’s regret everytime you lose in the Champions League. But, I think that’s one that I look back on and think, that was a real missed opportunity because how well we played over the two legs.

Post-Match Press Conference Transcript of David Moyes

Q. David, it was a terrific night of European football. What was your emotion at the end of it?

Moyes: Well, disappointed that we didn’t pick up all three… (laughs) points! No, pick up a victory. I thought we deserved it with our performance. But, really pleased with how the players had played. We had to defend well, but we made opportunities and it was a good night just but for giving the goal late on.

Q. In terms of work rate and resolve, I suppose you couldn’t have asked a lot more from your side, could you?

Moyes: No, I thought they were excellent – I mean from the start to the finish, we were very good. We knew it was going to be hard because they were going to have possession – they’re a really good side. But, we kept our discipline, kept in the right places, tried to do the right things, so often as we could, and we knew we would get opportunities to score, the way they played, and I thought that we could maybe cause them some problems and we did. But unfortunately, we got one or two chances and we didn’t quite finish them off.

Q. Particularly in that first half, Danny had one disallowed actually – possibly harshly and also had a great chance as well in the first half.

Moyes: Yeah, I agree. I’ve not seen the one yet where he gets disallowed but they’re saying its for a high boot. I need to say it again before I can comment correctly on it. But the other one, he got through and I was thinking, ‘Go on Danny, finish it off’. But he stood big, Neuer, and I was nearly hoping, ‘Go on, put it through his legs, Danny’. It looked as if he was standing that tall, it was only going to go through his legs. But, we didn’t get it and it was a great chance for us at that time.

Q. You got the breakthrough. Was it disappointing that they equalized quite soon after?

Moyes: It was, because I felt that maybe there was another goal in it for us. We had to keep defending the way we did, and hope that they would go chasing a goal and we could maybe get the second goal. So I was disappointed we lost the goal, but in the main, we defended well for most of the game.

Q. They lost Schweinsteiger to a red card late on. I think they were disappointed with that. He’s gonna miss the second leg, Martinez’s gonna miss the second leg as well, are they important players?

Moyes: They’re all important players for them, because it limits the coach’s choices – what he can do. We’ll have to try and take advantage of it. We’re going to need to go there and play as well as we did tonight, and more – because we have to go there and win the game, or at least get a goal to put us through. So, we’ve got a lot to do, but I’m confident we can go and do that.

Q. Well finally, looking at that second leg, you’re very much still alive in this tie, aren’t you? What would be your tactics going into that? How will you approach that one?

Moyes: We need to be mindful of what we’ve got. We do need to score – we need to think about making sure we’re in the game but I think, if they score anyway, we still need to score. So, it doesn’t change an awful lot in the initial part of the game, so we’ll look into it this week, we’ll see exactly what we think we need to do and prepare ourselves for the game.

Pre-Match Press Conference Transcript of David Moyes and Ryan Giggs

David Moyes, 31st March 2014 - Bayern Munich (UCL, H)

David Moyes, 31st March 2014 – Bayern Munich (UCL, H)

Q. David, is this one of the reasons why you took the job, a Champions League quarter-final against the holders and one of the best club teams in the world?

Moyes: Most definitely. Its a really good competition, its been very good for us so far, in my short time here. I come into it as a very inexperienced manager in the  Champions League, but we’ve done well and now, we’ve got the ultimate test in Bayern Munich.

Q. Is the pressure off you and the players in a sense with Bayern Munich being the holders obviously expected to win, is the pressure off you and more on them?

Moyes: I think the pressure is equally balanced because we want to win the game as much as Bayern Munich do. We go into the game knowing that on our day, we are as a good a side as any. We’ve got to show it more often than we have done, but I’ve got great belief in the players – I’ve said that from day one and it hasn’t changed. I get the feeling that they all want to play, the players want to play. Even I can tell in the training by their attitude – they’re saying this is a big game and they all want to play in the big games, that’s what, over the years, players here have wanted to do.

Q. How is Rafael da Silva, is he ruled out? How do you see the battle with Robben and Ribery given that Alexander Buttner will be playing left-back probably instead of Evra? 

Moyes: Well, we have defensive issues, undoubtedly. I won’t be giving out my team today, certainly not to Bayern and certainly not to you either. But we will , as everybody’s well aware, have to make one or two changes.

Q. What do you make of Bayern, David, as a side and what makes you think that you can combat them?

Moyes: Well, Bayern were a very good side last year – won the Champions League and had a good team. And  they’ve looked to try and add to that again this season – new manager. And they’ve continued – we can congratulate them on winning the Bundesliga, and they’re probably the side where most people have looked to recently. We’ve got to go into the game knowing that we have to try and come here, get a good result in the first leg if we can to take it to Germany. And we’ll try and do that.

Q. David, do you see this as a game with the first leg coming here, that you take the game to them and you play an attacking kind of football to try and take something to Germany?

Moyes: Well, its an obvious thing to say but it’s a two-legged game and we have to make sure that the two legs are important, both games. So we have to be mindful that we want to go to Germany with every opportunity of getting through. I think in the first leg, there’s always a little bit of cautiousness, but I think in the end, we’d love to go to Germany with a victory under a belt. If we can do that, it’d set us up nicely for a result.

Q. David, how do you view the tactical battle between you and Guardiola? Because this guy’s won Champions League, the Bundesliga, La Liga. He’s regarded as the best coach in the world, so how do you view the personal battle between yourself and him?

Moyes: I’m really looking forward to coming up against him – it’s the first time I’ve done so. But, I’ve got no doubt I’ll be doing it plenty of times in the future. He’s done incredibly well in the jobs he’s been in. He’s had a year to get himself ready for the Bayern job as well, which I think has helped him. And as I said before, he’s taken over a side that were really good, already the European Champions, but his record up to now has been really good.

Q. David, Shinji has quite an incredible record against Bayern Munich. He played 4 matches and 4 wins. Especially the final match, he scored one and set up one. Is that something positive for tomorrow’s match?

Moyes: Something which we’d seriously consider because Shinji’s a really important player to us, we like him a lot – he gives us something different. And, he’s certainly in our thoughts for tomorrow night’s game.

Q. David, after Arsenal played in Munich, Arsene Wenger described Arjen Robben as a great player but also a great diver. Is that something you’d have to tell your players about?

Moyes: No, we trust our referees to make the right decisions, I think. I’ve faced it many times, I think diving is one of the hardest things for referees to get right. I would’ve recommended for diving, cameras are there pick that out – it would help the referees, that’s my personal view. I wouldn’t want to comment on any individual player, I think its a hard job for the referees but I think they could do with a little bit of help when it comes to that.

Ryan Giggs, 31st March 2014 - Bayern Munich (UCL, H)

Ryan Giggs, 31st March 2014 – Bayern Munich (UCL, H)

Q. Ryan Giggs, I see the game in 1999 in Barcelona. What’s the difference from the Manchester team in 1999 and now 2014?

Giggs: The players, obviously, apart from myself (smiling). So obviously the players are different of both sides but the tradition and the clubs are are still the same – two huge clubs, two great histories and two football teams that play football the correct way. And when Bayern play Man United, its always great spectacle whether it be in the Champions League final or whether it be, like tomorrow, in the quarter-finals – two massive clubs.

Q. Ryan, having played many times against Bayern over the years, how does it feel to come into this game with many neutrals making Bayern clear favourites?

Giggs: Obviously, Bayern are a fantastic team, they’re the holders. And obviously. Pep Guardiola’s took over and added a few new players and they’re a very strong team. And like you say, probably, favourites in most people’s eyes. But, we’re Manchester United and we’re playing at Old Trafford and we’ve seen so many great nights, in Europe especially. So, as players, we don’t see ourselves as underdogs – we see ourselves as Manchester United playing at home in the Champions League and we can’t wait. These are the games you want to be involved in as a player, and we’ll go out there and try to win the game. Its going to be tough, but usually is in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. But, no, we’re confident and looking forward to it.

Pep Guardiola, 31st March 2014

Pep Guardiola, 31st March 2014

Pep Guardiola: “Like a trainer, for me, it is an honour for me to go to Old Trafford. I was in Old Trafford like a player when I was 19 or 20 years old, so its long time ago. Like a trainer, I’ve never been there so for me, its an honour – like a coach from Bayern Munchen to go to one of the mythical stadiums in the world, one of the best teams in the world. We know that in Premier League, they didn’t make a good season. Normally, Manchester United are to fight in there, but Champions League is another competition and normally, in this competition, we play the history and play the emotions and play the feelings in 90 minutes + 90 minutes. And I am pretty sure that Rooney and his teammates are going to make the best performance possible to beat us.”

“When we expect they are going to play like, maybe they played this season, we’ll make a huge mistake and we are going to try to prepare as much as possible and to know the dark problems and the weakness problems of United and beat them.”

Philipp Lahm, 31st March 2014

Philipp Lahm, 31st March 2014

Philipp Lahm: ” We are the defending champions which is why we are one of the favourites to win the tournament, but Manchester is a great team. Despite their current problems, United is a massive club with great history and we cannot be fooled by their current league position. They have outstanding individual quality but I do believe we have a good chance to progress to the semi-finals if we play to our full potential in both legs.”

“The two clubs have fought many a great battle in the past. I’m really looking forward to going to Manchester. I’ve played in Old Trafford twice. The stadium is huge, and the atmosphere is fantastic.”

Arjen Robben, 31st March 2014

Arjen Robben, 31st March 2014

Arjen Robben: “I think its a good draw for us, and one of the reasons is that we’re playing away from home first. United aren’t in their best shape right now, but they are still a top team, so I expect two very difficult games. Nevertheless, I think we are all really looking forward to those games.”

“When you play in the Champions League, you only have two matches. Of course, you could argue that United are struggling this season but that doesn’t count. We’re playing two knockout matches against a top team now and we need to be ready for that from the first minute.”

Matthias Sammer, 31st March 2014

Matthias Sammer, 31st March 2014

Matthias Sammer (Sports Director): “Its a highly attractive draw against a team that’s struggling to achieve consistency both in the Championship as well as in the Champions League. They lost the first leg against Olympiakos 2-0, but in front of their home ground, they’ve proven a few times they’re capable of great things.”

“Playing at home or away first only plays a role when you’re insecure. We need to be confident and convinced to show a top performance, and then the home-or-away draw doesn’t matter.”

Thomas Muller, 31st March 2014

Thomas Muller, 31st March 2014

Thomas Muller: “I think anything is possible in a quarter-final. Manchester probably weren’t a 100% convinced they’d make it after a tough defeat against Olympiakos. But they showed a very convincing performance. And that confirms that United still have great quality, even if things aren’t going very well in the league.”

Post-Match Press Conference Transcript of David Moyes

Q. David, first of all, congratulations. What a night that was, wasn’t it?

Moyes: What a night, and you know, we – the supporters deserved the night. And, to be honest, we needed a night – the management staff, the players – we needed it as well. But we had to perform, and thankfully we did that tonight.

Q. Clearly, it was an all-round team performance, but are there players that you would particularly pick out from that tonight?

Moyes: Of course there were. But, you know, it would be wrong for me just to mention Robin’s three goals or Ryan Giggs’ play and his assists, Wayne’s play. But I just thought Danny Welbeck was terrific, there was all-round performances. And David de Gea, we needed him to make saves which were really important in the game. We were always going to have to take some risks to try and score and attack, which was always meaning that we could be a bit vulnerable at the back. But we did that, and we hope- thankfully, I should say, we got through; we did it.

Q. You had a 40-year old defying all logic again there in the centre of midfield.

Moyes: I just say that he is a freak of nature, I think that he can do it. And it wasn’t as if I thought he was tiring after 60 minutes today, and he’s not played for a month or two. He’s just a really really good football player as everybody at this football club’s aware of and, his performance tonight was up there with as well as he’s played in my time that I’ve been here.

Q. Great to see Robin getting a hat-trick, but worrying to see him getting stretchered off at the end. What’s the situation with him?

Moyes: It looks as if he’s just got a knock in the back of his knee. We don’t think its too bad so, hopefully, that’s good news and he’s fine. But, great credit to score a hat-trick in the Champions League. I think special players do that, and he certainly is a special player.

Q. And the partnership that has been criticized sometimes – that of Wayne and Robin – it was there for all to see tonight.

Moyes: Yeah, it was. And we tried to link it a little bit with Danny Welbeck and Robin at times. We wanted to do where Wayne dropped a bit deeper and joined Robin as well. So, we found a way of getting the result and it was a big thing. But, we should have never put ourselves in the situation of being 2-0 down after the first leg but when we did, we needed a big night and a big effort and, as I said, after Sunday’s performance, it is a big thank you to the supporters for the part they played in getting us that result tonight.

Q. Well has that answered a few questions from the weekend? A lot of people were looking at this tonight, and there was their answer, I suppose.

Moyes: Yeah, I mean, what we’ve got to do is we’ve got to do it more often. We know we’re not playing as well as we should be, we know we’ve got to get better and I believe, given a little bit of time and given the chance to adjust to things, we can do that. I thought the big thing tonight was the players’ attitude, you know, mentally they were really focused. I’m sure from the first minute everyone saw their attitude – I think Danny Welbeck made a tackle in the first five or ten seconds and it sort of set the tone for the game a little bit.

Q. Fine, any thoughts on the draw, or are you just, at the moment, are we just happy that we’re in there at the moment?

Moyes: (laughing) No, I’ve got a couple of teams who I think I might prefer than a couple of others, but, I think this football club is capable, I really do. I think this football club has got history in the competition – it knows what to do when its there. Its not a shock that we’re in the last eight, its something which we do regularly. So, hopefully we’re going to try and get into the last 4, that’s the big thing now.

Q. Congratulations, David.

Moyes: Thank you, thanks.

Pre-Match Press Conference Transcript of David Moyes

Q. David, hello. The mood looked pretty good in training this morning. But, Wayne Rooney suggested after that defeat against Liverpool that it was the worst performance in his ten years at Old Trafford. So, has it been difficult to lift the players back up again?

Moyes: Well, I think when you lose in the fashion we did, and obviously, to one of our biggest rivals, there’s always a lot of disappointment. We knew it was a big week – we had Liverpool and now we have got Olympiakos in the Champions League. But, as soon as it was over, we’ve concentrated on this game. And, you know, we told the players that on Monday morning when we got them back in; the only thing that matters now is this game, and our focus is now on that – on the Olympiakos game.

Q. There’s a great tradition of European success here at Old Trafford, can you use that to inspire the players to try and turn this tie around, do you think?

Moyes: We will try and do that. I think, I was looking back, its only twice Manchester United have done it. I think 1984 was the recent one, against Barcelona. I think Robbo got two goals, by all accounts, that night. So, its not something that’s happened a lot, but its something that we have to try and make happen.

Q. There’s a few times that you see encouraging signs and you see improvement. I have to say that, I find it difficult to see that improvement on the field at the moment. What is it that makes you think that it will improve, and that your position will look more secure over the next few weeks?

Moyes: Well, I think that I see the players everyday; I get the chance to work with them everyday. The qualities they show me – I think they know they can play better – I don’t think any of them are questioning that. But, I get buoyed from the players – I see what they can do. And, hopefully they can show it – agreed, they have not showed it as often as we’ve liked. But, we’ll try and make that happen tomorrow night.

Q. David, you can overstate the importance of matches sometimes, but, to what extent do you think your future depends on the outcome of this match?

Moyes: My future has not changed one bit – I got a great job, I know exactly the direction I want to go in. Its not been the season we’d hoped we would’ve had at this present time, but, I’ve got ideas of what I want to do, where to put players when the time is right. But the most important thing just now is to get the Olympiakos game played. Hopefully get through in that competition. If we can, it would be a massive lift for us. But, we know we’ve got ourselves in a poor position being 2-0 down. But we’ve got a lot of belief, and we’ve got to try and make it show, and play well in the game.

Q. David, do you think one of the big things here is, whether you go through tomorrow or go out tomorrow, is that these players play like you know they can? They put on a performance for the crowd who have backed them all season.

Moyes: Yeah, I think the support inside Old Trafford has been phenomenal, it really has been. I think the players will tell you that it was the first thing I mentioned to them near enough after the game was, you know, we need to start giving something back now, we need to start performing together – me, the team – we need to make sure we work together to get a performance and a night to be remembered. And we’ll do everything we possibly can to make that happen, we’ll leave nothing behind on the night hopefully and we’ll try to make sure we somehow go through to the next round.
