Personal Quotes (4)

What do I say to them in the dressing-room? Nothing really. Most of the time I don't even know what they are going to do myself. [On managing Liverpool FC]

The people who come to watch us play, who love the team and regard it as part of their lives, would never appreciate Liverpool having a huge balance in the bank. They want every asset we possess to be wearing a red shirt.
I would just love to have gone and stood in the Kop.
