What kind of music do you like? Any particular thing you like to do before going on the pitch? (Prateek Chotrani)

We have some music in dressing room, I try to put my own music on my phone and try to concentrate on the game, I like to hear BBC Manchester about the news and to learn English and the Manchester accent.

Who is the most untidy player in the dressing room? (Nitro)

Navas! Jesus Navas! Oh my God, no organisation, nothing, his telephone in my place, his boots somewhere else... The other day we take his shoes and he tried to find them, he was looking for half an hour!

One Portuguese! But I can communicate in English, Spanish, Italian and Russian after playing in Ukraine.

What do you think of the Fernandinho song? (Michael Murphy)

I remember they created this song after the Arsenal game when I scored two goals and the following game was against Leicester and they started the song, it was amazing. It's like your're doing your job and everyone appreciates it, so thank you fans for the song.
