Dimitar Berbatov: "I'm not coming here to replace anyone, I'm here to help the team win with my passing and scoring. I may be a little older than when I played for Manchester United, but I feel good, ready to give it my very best... I can play up front, or behind another striker, but above all, I'm here to help the squad so that the team wins. I like nice football, I like putting on entertainment for the supporters... Paris have a great team, it's perfect to start with such a big match."
Aymen Abdennour: "When I was little, I dreamed about playing for a big club. Here I am at Monaco, a big club. To play in the same side as Ricardo Carvalho and Eric Abidal is a real honour for me… My injury is not serious, but it needs time to heal. It will take another two weeks. I will work very hard with the fitness coaches to get back as soon as possible."
Uwa 'Elderson' Echiejile: "I am very happy to return to France, in such a big club as AS Monaco FC. I've returned after three and a half years in Portugal. I'm not the same player as when I left. I have gained a lot more experience."
