[Thomas Muller reveals the harsh words used by manager Pep Guardiola to his team during their 4-2 extra-time victory over Juventus in the last-16 of the Champions League] He told us that he’d cut our balls off. Of course, there are a lot of emotions. I wouldn’t be any different as a coach. We wanted to play for the third goal, because we still had energy left in us

[World Cup winner Thomas Muller insists on taking the positives despite Germany’s EURO heartache] Everyone saw the Euros, we were close but in the semi-final it just didn’t work out.

[Zinedine Zidane says it was better for Real Madrid to suffer in win over Bayern] We gifted a goal and you cannot have it happen twice in a semi-final like this. We lacked a lot of luck, especially in the box. We should not be ashamed but it hurts a lot to have missed the chance. We invested so much and there are so many guys who deserve to play in a final

[Thomas Muller feels world champions Germany have improved since their triumph at Brazil 2014] Individually, without a doubt [we are better]. But football has developed considerably. Other countries have also come on leaps and bounds and their players have become much more technically refined. Comparing different generations doesn’t often get you anywhere. You simply have to keep up with the development of the sport, and in that sense, we’re ready. We are world champions, we have several players at the peak of their powers. We are looking forward to the tournament

[Thomas Muller was central to Bayern’s comeback against second-tier Heidenheim, scoring to make it 2-2 before setting up Robert Lewandowski to put Bayern in front, although the Poland striker still had to convert a late penalty to settle matters] Conceding four goals at home is too much. But for us it’s going to be important to improve where we made mistakes and be better on Saturday.

Offensively we can continue like this, but defensively, the whole team has to improve and we have to grow with the challenge. Another thing that was off today was that we probably thought we could just easily continue like this, but in the cup, that can’t happen.

I am still a bit overwhelmed after the game. It’s maybe a bit easier for you to analyse the game than a player who was on the pitch. It was a ‘crazy thing’. Many things happened that we didn’t like and that should bother us

[Thomas Muller talks about the Bundesliga title race] We are hungry, we want to win the championship. It is necessary to score goals to win the games. We are confident in this moment right now. We need the points. Dortmund is a tough competitor. We know what to do but we are hungry. [Growls]

[Newly-extended Muller considered leaving Bayern under Kovac] In autumn, I was left out of the starting 11 for six games in a row. It was difficult. Of course, it made me think. Emotionally, it was very tense back then. I wasn’t necessarily thinking that I would be extending my contract in the spring. With the change of coach and different playing style, everything has developed positively. Not only have I been playing more, but I’ve also been able to put my stamp on our games again

We try to stick to what is specified from above. I don’t know what is specified and restricted in other areas.

We have to fit into the overall structure. I don’t know if football has a special position

[Bayern Munich attacker Thomas Muller has selected former Bundesliga veteran Maik Franz as his toughest ever opponent] When I was very young I had a lot of respect for Maik Franz. In one of my first seasons he came in for a one-on-one tackle near the halfway line at the Allianz Arena – I thought he was going to crack me. That’s why I jumped up and fell down even though he pulled away. In fact, it was a dive, but an unintentional one. Actually, it was a lifesaver

It was a very intense game. We were under a lot of pressure with the story from last year. The danger of becoming the big losers was huge at the time. We would have lost three Champions League finals within four years. So the best moment was when the referee blew the whistle. We were dead.
