In with a chance of winning the Premier League on the final day of the season before next weekend’s Champions League final meeting with Real Madrid, the German has reflected on what has been a remarkable campaign.
"Imagine somebody tells you before the season, you’re going to be in all three cup finals and want to fight for the league," he said ahead of the visit of Wolves.
"You would say ‘Yeah, good luck with that’. It’s actually not possible but the boys did it - fed by the people here in the building (training ground), by our supporters, by all these kind of things.
"It has been tough but great. It’s absolutely a joy to be part of it. Being part of this group is exceptional. By the group, I mean not only the players, we are here in the building of the group. It’s insane.
"Working together with these people is a pure joy. Being where we are is so rare, you cannot plan it.
"It’s a fantastic time for a Liverpool supporter and now we have to make sure we enjoy the last two games as well.
"The most enjoyable thing in football is winning football games, that makes everything much easier.
"Two massive games to come, one directly on Sunday, and we have to make sure we are ready for that."
