Flick admitted that his side weren’t at their very best, but added he would like to see a better performance in the final.
“I’m glad we won the game. We all noticed that the journey wasn’t perfect,” said Flick (as captured by Tz).
“In that respect, I am satisfied. But we also know that we have made life difficult for ourselves. I expect that we will do better in the final.”
Bayern are up against an eager Tigres side, who are hungry to lift the Club World Cup. Flick is aware of the challenge up ahead, and said: “They are really very dynamic and athletic. We will prepare for it.”
Good to play in front of fans
Bayern have been playing their games in an empty stadium due to the coronavirus pandemic. The team misses the support of the fans as much as the fans miss cheering on their favorite team.
Flick was happy to see fans in the stadium, and said: “It’s nice, there was also more of an atmosphere.
“But you also needed a little more of a voice (to communicate). We all hope that we will soon be able to play in front of fans again in the Bundesliga.”
