"Many people will say that these things happen, but if that is the message we are sending to our children, that nothing is out of bounds and it's all about winning, then I will be glad to leave this planet in 40 years". Liverpool are one of the best teams in the world - everyone can see that. Win all of them and it's good, but it's pretty hard to do so.
"We want to compete with the biggest teams like Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Barcelona". We have to try to win every game because all of them are important. That's it. We lost them in other games.
