Is the following statement correctly written and punctuated? Thank you.

At Manchester United, winning is not important, it’s the only thing that counts.

@paok1970,
It's fine, personally I'd drop the comma after MU, but that's just a matter of style. It's perfectly fine either way.

@izzythepush,
Where Man Utd is concerned, I personally would take the letter 'O' out of 'counts' but that's just me and has nothing to do with paok's question.

I would put 'just' or 'merely' before 'important'.

Agreed. I would also consider a semicolon between two independent but related clauses.

@paok1970,
The pitch is where plagiarism meets aphorism:

Winning isn't everything, it's the only thing.

Bill Shankly said 'Some people believe football is a matter of life and death, I am very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that.'

He should have stuck to the original aphorism.

@centrox,
Obviously, Bill Shankly is an idiot.
