"They played with more pace than us and more enthusiasm. We can't make any excuses, we played a bad game and we have to congratulate Cadiz. We're not happy at all."

Zinedine Zidane, Real Madrid Coach


"I don't know if it was a penalty, it looked like they were looking for it and we fell into the trap. I don't know if we had VAR or not today. I don't like to talk about referees, but if you watch the match and see how many fouls they made and how many cards were given out, then you can make your own mind up."

Ronald Koeman, Barcelona Coach


"The first half was very near to what we see as perfect football. But at times we have to be more clever to save energy."

Hansi Flick, Bayern Munich Coach


"I am the real support of VAR. (Last season) the armpit was offside. Now, there is no armpit offside, everyone tells me it was not offside but it does not lift my mood. We lost one player with Virgil and maybe another with the red card. Not our day. The picture I saw now once on the laptop, there is no armpit, there is nothing, we are just not offside."

Juergen Klopp, Liverpool Coach


"We don't want to use it as an excuse, but we needed pre-season. We wanted to get to this international break with more points than we have, but now we know our season started today because we've come up to the speed of the game."

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United Coach


"So there are going to be moments of carelessness, it happens -- we have a young, quality team which is still under construction, so we need time and the youngsters need to make mistakes. We haven't had time to oil the machine."

Andrea Pirlo, Juventus Coach


"I was being tested every three days to see the result, I told myself I could skip the other games but not the derby. Nobody was going to stop me. We hadn't beaten Inter for four years in the league and I was hungry."

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, AC Milan striker


"We haven't been quite as fluent this season but in the last couple of games have shown that fluency is coming back and it's great to keep the momentum going. When Sergio is on the field you know there can be a goal at any moment. He is vital to help us compete on all fronts and great to have him back."

Raheem Sterling, Manchester City forward
