QUOTES OF THE WEEK

n It was just frustration. It wasn't an outburst of temperament. Colin Montgomerie on his sand-kicking during the Benson and Hedges International.

What Fantasy Football League has done to Jason is terrible - he has been victimised. Frank Clark, the Nottingham Forest manager claiming taunts from the BBC programme were behind his decision to transfer-list striker Jason Lee.

If people think there is a case to answer then I'm prepared to answer it. I don't think I've slagged anyone off. Raymond Illingworth, the England chairman of selectors, employs the forward defensive over complaints about his new book.

Aime Jacquet has once again given Cantona his favourite role, that of martyr. The decision will embellish the legend of the cursed player, crucified by others when he does not indulge in self-destruction. L'Equipe, the French sports daily, on the decision not to include Cantona in France's Euro 96 squad.

It's nothing short of disgraceful and it saddens me greatly to see how he has been overlooked since giving us the greatest day in our history. Nobby Stiles, outraged at the failure by the Football Association to involve Sir Alf Ramsey in Euro 96.

This will be the biggest export of British beef of the month. Malcolm Arnold, chief coach, after announcing strong men's and women's British athletics teams to compete in the European Cup in Madrid.

Managers do not look at us as a pair but as individuals. Gary Neville, speaking before he and brother Phil became the first brothers to play for England together since 1970.

Every time he's come to join us he's looked terrific, which you don't see so much. Terry Venables, the England manager, on Nick Barmby's two- goal performance in China.

It scared me to death and I said no. I honestly didn't think I was good enough. Ian Rush, now of Leeds United, recalling Liverpool's pounds 500,000 offer to Chester for him in 1980 which he initially rejected.

It's a vital stage in my career. If I was just going to be sitting on the bench or part of the squad I would stagnate a little bit. The animal in me says I have to got to play on. Steve Bruce explains why he left Manchester United for Birmingham City.

In Italy we say that leaving is a little like dying, but change is a little like being reborn. Gianluca Vialli, who won a European Cup winner's medal with Juventus and then joined Chelsea.
