 This is not important - on Sunday we play Manchester City against QPR. For me, they are a good team, they don't deserve to stay at the bottom. They want to do everything to stay in the Premier League and for this reason I think it will be a tough game.

 I don't know [Hughes] very well but it is not Mancini against Hughes or Hughes against Mancini. It is City against QPR. One team plays for the title, the other plays [to avoid] relegation.

 Yes, I was surprised. For me, it was a red card. I think this happens in every country. Every club gets different treatment. Here, in Italy and Spain, it’s normal that the big clubs get treated differently.

 In my life I have never seen that a team arrives in February and March and has to play every two days. This is a big problem, not only for us but for all the teams. Something should change because this is impossible for all English players. At every World Cup and European Championships, there is a problem for England because all their players are tired. We should have more respect for them. They are not machines.

 I told the players to go home and have a drink. They should be disappointed by the result, but not by the performance. We are very close to United now, very close.
