Yaya Toure: "It will make a big difference.
"He is a great guy, a great manager and I hope he stays in football.
"He has done something unbelievable for that club.
"For us, I think it is going to be very important. It is looking like Manchester City will start to dominate the Premier League - I hope!"
James Milner: "I don't think that affects us really.
"We concentrate on our business over here and it's obviously big news but all we are concentrating on us the FA Cup final.
"It's not going to be any more open than it would have been if he was there next year.
"He's been an amazing manager for them over the years, his record is ridiculous, unreal, but we are concerned on our side."
Vincent Kompany: "I can't see the ambition for any team changing because of the changes in manager.
"I wouldn't expect any weakened opposition because of that."
