"I am very happy of course because after a few months I have experienced everything - at Old Trafford, in the city and in the club. Now I know how big the club is. Being on tour was amazing, but when you come to Manchester and you play at Old Trafford you feel the real Manchester United. I’m really enjoying things and looking forward to the rest of the season. I want to help the team achieve our objectives."

"Goalscoring is not one of my best qualities. But I think it’s very important for midfielders. The best midfielders in the world like Paul Scholes scored hundreds of goals. I want to make and score more goals and I wish one day that I can be like Scholes."

"I have a lot of respect for him and I always enjoyed watching him. He always worked hard, helped the team and always made a lot of chances not only for himself but for all his team-mates. I know it will be difficult but I wish that one day I can be similar to him."

- Ander Herrera

"It took me a long time to sit down in front of the computer in order not to miss my weekly meeting with you. I have waited a few hours before facing the white screen to try to express how I feel after the game in Leicester. After a whole week waiting for the match I could not imagine a Sunday like this. The way back from Leicester to Manchester on the bus seemed really long."
"I keep thinking about how we lost a game that was under control, but the thing is we were ahead, they equalised and when we tried to get advantage again we lost. It’s really tough to score three goals away and come back home with no points. On our way back to Manchester I was thinking about what had happened and felt so disappointed as all those that came with us to the stadium. Honestly, I feel very sorry that the weekend ended up for our fans in such a sad way."
"There is time during the week to analyse what happened and learn from our mistakes so as not to make them again. Now we play two consecutive games in Old Trafford that we want to win for our fans. We will put our best efforts to it, you can be sure of that."
"I hope to be in a better mood next Sunday to tell you about the game and many other things, to try to put a smile in our face on Monday. Thank you for being there in the good and the bad times and never giving up. It is important to feel your support."

Louis van Gaal:

"I’ve been in this ­profession for 25 years and the only other experience I’ve known like that was in my first year as coach at Barcelona (in 1998). We were three goals ahead with a quarter of the match to play and lost 3-4. That was also at a top club, but you never expect that to happen when you’re 3-1 ahead and are leading by two goals for the second time. It can happen in football, but it’s not good because we had the game in our pocket and we gave it away - not because of Leicester but we gave it away, and I don’t like that."

"You have to kill the game and keep possession, but we couldn’t do that. And then, of course, you give it away with penalties, you cannot win a game when you do that. I think we created a lot of chances and we made superb goals. But a game lasts 90 minutes and you have to do that for 90 minutes, not 60 minutes. You can’t say the defence was weak. You play like a team - Leicester showed that. We didn’t play like a team in the second half, and that’s not only the defence. In a defensive situation the whole team is responsible."

Wayne Rooney:

"We’re all really disappointed, especially after going 3-1 up. We should have seen the game off, and we should have kept the ball better. We didn’t do that, we made a few mistakes and it has cost us."

"Leicester played a lot of long balls and we struggled a little bit with those. Overall, it wasn’t good enough as a team. We played some good stuff at times and scored some great goals, but we made too many mistakes as a team and have to do better. We gave away a sloppy goal straight after we got our second. That lifted the crowd, but we have to do better. It’s bitterly disappointing that we didn’t."
