“And after the treble, you’re obviously looking at the FIFA Club World Cup. We’re quite simply motivated to win something else, so we’re all obviously really looking forward to the Club World Cup.”

“That would probably be the icing on the cake, but it’s obviously going to be a challenge.

“I know what it’s like from working with the national team. At European Championships, or for us in the Champions League, you always play European teams.

“Coming up against South American, Asian or African sides is always a little bit different in terms of the mentality of your opponents.

“On the one hand, as I’ve just said, it’s the mindset and the way the players are set up, but you also come across the occasional new concept as regards the way you imagine and eventually play the game.

“From that point of view, I’m really looking forward to seeing and analysing what the tournament has to offer and maybe picking up some fresh ideas.

“This is why it’s always really special when you get a global perspective on something and get to play against the best teams in the world,” he concluded.
