Anyone can have a good day, but you have to be able to perform on a bad day.
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.
Just like every person who works for Dortmund is a fan of the club, it was the same at Mainz. When I was a player there, we had 800 supporters on rainy Saturday afternoons, and if we died, no one would notice or come to our funeral. But we loved the club, and we have this same feeling at Dortmund.
I understand aggressiveness in only one way: being prepared to hurt yourself, not someone else.
Yes, it is one of my ultimate aims - it is the ultimate sense of football: to make the people happy, to let them live some emotions that you usually can't get.
When I started analysing games in 2001, I had a DVD recorder. I'd be at home watching the games just on a normal TV, watching what I could and trying to figure out what we would be facing a few weeks later. The problem was, in the team meetings, I'd always have to keep going back and forwards with the footage, trying to get to the right part.
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?'
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.
We all started playing football against our best friends, and I can't remember a moment where, because it was my best friend, I did not want to win against him.
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.
Winning the title in England is the biggest challenge of them all.
The emotion to handle the pressure is one of the biggest challenges in football - it's the top challenge.
In Germany, they all thought I was a bit mental, very emotional.
If you watch me during the game, I celebrate when we press the ball and it goes out.
Life is too short not to celebrate nice moments!
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.
What is Champions League level? I saw a lot of rubbish games at Champions League level.
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.
In Dortmund, they say the derby is more important than the championship. You can feel it around the game.
I only change things where I know about a situation. I'd never change just for change.
