Aitor Karanka Quotes

If we score goals and win games people will come to support us.


If one day I am successful, if one day I am sacked, it's because I do things my way. So I am going to do (select) my shape and I am going to pick my players and I am going to be successful or a failure doing things my way. For that reason I am not going to change because the chairman or the crowd (ask me).


Managers don't have dreams. It's the players who dream; about playing in the Premier League, winning the Champions League. The life of a manager is different. You can only think about the day-to-day.
