If you want special results, you have to feel special things and do special things together. You can speak about spirit, or you can live it.

Fighting football, not serenity football - that is what I like.

In London, you'll be walking around and, 'Oh, there's the ground.' Every area of the city has a Premier League club. They all survive; they all exist with enough money, and that's good.

If two smart, intelligent, clever guys sit together on a table, and you both want the same, where can be the problem? We all want to be successful.

You'd be waiting 30 or 40 years for me to build a table. I have more than two left hands.

The emotion to handle the pressure is one of the biggest challenges in football - it's the top challenge.

I am not a dreamer. I am a football romantic.

It's not about changing people; it's sometimes about changing a situation. How can we build an even better situation for them?

Derbies are always difficult to play because you have to handle the pressure. There's no advantage or disadvantage for either side.

When the players go home, I can't tell them what to do, so you need to create an atmosphere of trust. I don't want to think, 'What are they doing now? Do I need to call them?'

I've met some Evertonians in the street, and they've been friendly. I've had taxi drivers who have been Everton fans. They've been really nice.

I get a little bit emotional during a game!

In England, football is a big thing to talk about, but Liverpool, it's a special place. You feel it when you make your first step.

What is Champions League level? I saw a lot of rubbish games at Champions League level.

To win is always good for the feeling of the whole team.

As Dortmund manager, I lived in a street, and my two neighbours were Schalke fans. They showed it every day, flying flags!

When we have the ball, the other team has to run. The most important thing is for the players to be prepared to be a little bit wild.

Bad performances can happen and are not that serious - even with new players. You can't, say, sell him, get a new one.

Shinji Kagawa is one of the best players in the world, and he now plays 20 minutes at Manchester United - on the left wing! My heart breaks. Really, I have tears in my eyes. Central midfield is Shinji's best role.

I have no problem if someone wants to hug me - if I know him!

If you watch me during the game, I celebrate when we press the ball and it goes out.

Players who are not from the U.K. have to get used to the winds. I have to adapt my style as a result as well. Often, you are forced to keep things simple.

My experience is listen, see, feel - and then think about what you change.

My father gave me some advice when I was very young - whatever someone tells you in the future, don't forget Pele is the best.

I'm not sure what you need first - the players believing or others believing in them - but in the end, both have to think it.

I was a very average player and became a trainer in Germany with a special club.

The more players I have, the more difficult choices there are for me, but the better it is for LFC.

Winning the title in England is the biggest challenge of them all.

I didn't take many penalties, but I never missed one.

My problem is I am Christian, so I think other people must have success, too; it's not about me.

I like learning more about people; I like to talk to people.

I love pets, especially dogs.

My first win feels better than a draw!

It needs time. Nobody wants to hear it, but that's the truth: if you want to have success in the future, you have to be ready to work now.

I understand aggressiveness in only one way: being prepared to hurt yourself, not someone else.

I have only one understanding of development and of making success, and that's by going step by step.

I love football and the intensity of football in Liverpool, this is what is very good for me.

I'm looking forward to the intensity of football and how the people live football in Liverpool. It's a special club.

The only thing I can say is that I like people; I like human beings with their faults and with their strengths.

I'm not a genius. I need other people to get the perfect information. When we have this, we will decide to sign or sell a player.

We don't want people to leave the stadium until the game finishes.

My biggest skill is common sense. I understand life.

It's absolutely normal that different human beings want to go different ways.

Louis van Gaal is one of the most successful managers in the world.

I've thought sometimes about what I like about football, and it's playing together.

When you create circumstances together, when you try everything, then you can lose. But you need to show the importance.

Anyone can have a good day, but you have to be able to perform on a bad day.

The Premier League is one of the most difficult in the world. There's five, six, or seven clubs that can be the champions. Only one can win, and all the others are disappointed and live in the middle of disaster.

I am a normal guy from the Black Forest, and I do not compare myself with the geniuses.
