"I wished I played in the World Cup of course, but that's the reality now [that] I don't do [that], but I will relax my body and my mind a lot and then I will train.

"What I will train on? Nothing special I think, it's been going quite well my first months at City, so I don't need to do so many changes to be honest.

"It's about preparing myself for the next half of the season and be ready when the next game kicks in after the break."

"The biggest thing we can do is to get to either a World Cup or a Euros,"

he said.

"That of course is my goal with the national team to do. We know it's difficult, but hopefully in the future one day I'll be able to play there."

Asked about his prediction on the tournament, the Norwegian said:

"I think the favorites should be Brazil, Argentina, France, and maybe England. I cannot only say one because there are so many good teams."
