"Winning the final and scoring two is fantastic. I missed the last penalty I took but I was convinced I wouldn't miss this one.
Ruud van Nistelrooy

Ruud van Nistelrooy

"We knew we had a hard game and all credit to Millwall. We were on a hiding to nothing, they were comfortable on the ball and can play a bit. But we were hopeful in the end the quality would tell and it did."
Roy Keane

"We had to be very professional, I don't think were outstanding but [Cristiano] Ronaldo in particular was brilliant. I think he can be a world-class player. He is only 19 and to come with the massive price tag, he has done very well for us."
Gary Neville

"If we look after him [Ronaldo] the right way he is going to be one of the stars of football."
Sir Alex Ferguson

"My players have done very well but had we not gone in 1-0 down at half-time it might have been different. That goal killed us off. We made a mistake and we got punished.

"I told the players we were done by a sloppy goal, the second I don't know if it was a penalty and the third was offside. But it was fantastic for us - we gave it a go."
Dennis Wise

"We were punished for a mistake for the first goal and even though Ruud van Nistelrooy got two goals he had a quiet game. That tells you everything."
Neil Harris

"United are a good side. They were a little bit fortunate but the better side won. Our lads have learned a lot."
Ray Wilkins
