[Martin Demichelis on Premier League] It’s obvious that the Premier League is the hardest because of how the referees allow a lot more physical contact. In that sense, anything goes. But I understand that it’s the way the English interpret football. It’s how they were brought up. It’s what they like, getting kicked and getting up, whistling a player who simulates a foul or stays on the ground. It seems that rugby is closely related to football here – they like this game of knocks, of aggressiveness, and you can see it on the face of the fans, when they cheer and shout. It’s a way of experiencing it and it’s good

[Martin Demichelis speaks on his turbulent relationship with former boss Louis van Gaal] If I tell you about a great manager, but one who is completely crazy: Van Gaal. He goes a bit too far sometimes. One day, in a game for the starters against the substitutes, with him as referee, the goalkeeper gave me the ball and I smashed the ball in his direction, aiming at his face. It missed him by inches. There was a deafening silence and he said: ‘I ask you all that no one else gives the ball to Demichelis’. We later ended up arguing in the dressing room

[Germany legend Miroslav Klose has been backed to become a manager by former Bayern Munich team-mate Martin Demichelis] We have known each other for a long time and had a good relationship as team-mates, now as coaches. We sometimes have different ideas, but it has to be that way. He was a striker; I was a defender. He is German, I am Argentinian. We both learn from each other. Miro is a good and intelligent man who will one day also be a professional manager. I am a team player and I am with the under-19s to learn and have new experiences. I still have time to develop, but my goal is to become a professional coach one day. Now I want to learn quickly so that I can be ready in the future

[The defender recalled an episode from earlier in his career when he clashed with former Bayern manager Ottmar Hitzfeld] Sure, I was spirited as a player and sometimes had differences of opinion with my coaches. But I always just wanted to help the team. At the beginning at Hitzfeld I was supposed to play number six, I accepted that. With Felix Magath I was a regular player in this position. Then Hitzfeld came back and I initially lost my regular place. Before the 2007-08 season, I felt like I was looking for a new challenge, but Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said I should stay, which paid off for me, because from then on I played with Lucio in central defence. Then I was supposed to move up to six again in spring 2008, which then led to inconsistencies with Hitzfeld. That’s how it was. The last time I met Hitzfeld, we had a big hug
