Inspiring quotes by Lothar Matthäus

The top 10 most inspiring quotes by Lothar Matthäus

  • I played in the 1980 UEFA Cup final for Borussia Monchengladbach against Eintracht Frankfurt, who had the legendary South Korean Cha Bum-kun as their forward. He was the face of Frankfurt at the time. He had pace, great technique, was a great dribbler, and scored goals. And most importantly, he was the ultimate team man.
  • In Germany, we laugh at it. Mourinho just selects a topic to moan about: transfers, team preparation, or a rival coach. But Pep Guardiola wants it all to be about the performance of his team. He’s obsessed by possession, like at Bayern Munich, and will not compromise on that at Manchester City.
  • Andres Iniesta is the magic man, not just for Barcelona but also for Spain.
  • I always say that if you stay with a good coach, the relationship between him and his team becomes like a family: he becomes a father to his children.
  • Football in Italy at the end of the ’80s and beginning of the ’90s was the best all over the world.
  • I think my breakthrough was at the World Cup in 1986.
  • Every good German team has strong leadership.
  • I was certainly no Maradona. I was a very fast player. When I saw a space, I used it. When I went past somebody, he didn’t catch up with me again. I was a player who came with a run-up. What Maradona could see in a small space, I saw over long distances.
  • I’m actually a very simple person. A very normal man.
  • I had very good players around me in the team, like in the German national team. Andreas Brehme was one of my best partners in the team because he had good eyes; he could always hit the best ball.
