    [ssn] Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas is looking forward to his side’s final game against Sunderland but does not think it is his place to comment on whether the season can still be regarded as a success if Spurs miss out on Champions League qualification. 
    It is not up to me to judge. It is up to the board and the chairman to decide what will be considered a success or not. What we are striving to achieve is 72 points, which will be our Premier League highest and is already a considerable tally. But it shows you have to improve and gather more points next time.

    [ssn] Arsene Wenger has insisted he did not pay much attention to Alan Pardew’s comments last week when he joked that he did not care whether Newcastle lost to Arsenal. The two sides meet on Sunday and Wenger is expecting a tough game at St James’ Park.
    I take that as a relief at being safe, and then reality kicks in and Newcastle will play their normal game. I think you have to take a distance with this kind of statement. They have been under a lot of pressure and got safe so of course there is euphoria.

    Our interest is for the player to continue here and we have made that very, very clear. Whatever is happening, the idea is for the player to be with us next season.
    Villas-Boas has also hinted he could make a summer move for David Villa but has dismissed speculation linking the club with the Croatian Ante Rebic.

    [ssn] Sir Alex Ferguson admits the celebrations over the past few days have been some of the best he has ever experienced as Manchester United manager, having been presented with the Premier League trophy last Sunday and then enjoyed their victory parade around the city 24 hours later.
    Sunday was quite amazing, it was unbelievable. And the parade on Monday, I thought 99 could not be beaten, but this was incredible.

    AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli has insisted he is happy to have put his time at Manchester City behind him.
    I'm not here to talk about if I'm unfairly treated. I don't care. I'm out from England, I'm happy that I'm out from England. That's it.

    David Moyes has no hesitation in recommending any of his coaching staff to replace him as manager at Everton.
    I would always recommend the people who are around me. A lot of them know how the workings of the building (at the training ground) are, how we move things forward and the restraints the club has, so it is easy for them to deal with that.

    Robin van Persie has rubbished talk that all Manchester United fans come from outside the city, claiming Monday's trophy parade showed the opposite.
    I spoke to Nigel de Jong a couple of years ago when he was playing for City. He said in Manchester there were only City fans and United's come from different cities all over the world. It sounded a bit weird. I have to adjust him on that now and say it is definitely not true.
