Bochum 0-7 Bayern — Post-Match Statements
Bayern Munich secured another victory in the league by winning 0-7 away against VfL Bochum.
This outstanding performance could send a lot of signals to the competition that Bayern want to win the league once again for the 11th time in a row.
Here are the post match statements from the head coach Julian Nagelsmann and the players
„We are very happy. In terms of performance, it was important for us to be consistent like we did against Wolfsburg. I said before the game that the first 30 minutes are important. We took the lead early. I already said it after the first two games: the energy in the team, the atmosphere. Everyone gives everything to everyone.“
… on Sané: „He can play really well. When he is 100% committed he is one of the best footballers in Europe. He has skills not many have“
… on de Ligt: „He was told early in the week that he would play today. Then he injured his hand. He played really well, as did the other three teammates in the defense who kept a cleansheet. He is developing really well.“
… on rotation: „It’s not always easy for those sitting on the bench. I want to give everyone the opportunity to play on the pitch. The energy in the squad was very good after the first three games. But everyone knows that no one has a starting guarantee. Football is a team sport, we win and lose together.“
… on Davies: „He had muscular injuries. We did not want to take risks“
„It was a very good game and I am very proud of this performance. That’s how we want to keep playing. We’re in good spirits and we are having fun. We always try to give everything. We run a lot and have a lot of opportunities up front. We saw that today.“
Matthijs de Ligt
„It was unbelievable. First game, first goal and the first clean sheet. That is also very important. When you score a goal as a defender, that’s great, but of course you also want to keep a clean sheet. It is important to always be focused. We did very well as a team. We pressed hard and kept going. That’s how you score seven goals.“
„Every player wants to play from the beginning. But I understood the situation as a new player. I came as a new player from Juventus. Upamecano and Hernandez were doing really well. Obviously my goal is to play regularly.“
Joshua Kimmich on Sané:
„Today he played sensationally. He showed that in training in the last couple of weeks. It is remarkable how he proves himself on the pitch later. There was a lot of criticism because he did not play. You can tell that he is with feet on the ground. Today he rewarded himself with an outstanding performance.“
