Jose Mourinho: "Every time I've contested the UEFA Super Cup, it was as the Europa League winners. When I won the Champions League with Porto, I left Porto. When I won the Champions League with Inter, I left Inter.
“So I've never contested the UEFA Super Cup as the strongest team. It's the same story this time: I'm taking Manchester United to play against Real Madrid, the Champions League winners. Hopefully this time we can do it."
Zinedine Zidane: "We started off badly and we know how it is. The bad run is now four games long.
"We have very little time before [the Super Cup] and we have to rest and get ready for that.”
