After the 0:3 defeat against Manchester City, FC Bayern is on the brink of Champions League elimination. FCB coach Thomas Tuchel did not blame his team for the performance at the Etihad Stadium after the match.
Even though the German record champions have to return to Munich with a bitter 0:3 defeat, Thomas Tuchel was not dissatisfied with his team’s performance: „I don’t see the result at all. We were punished in phases when we were the better team. We were simply punished bitterly today. I thought our performance was very strong until 2:0. But I don’t want to talk down today’s performance. I saw a very good performance up to the 70th minute, but then we were punished.“
„I fell in love with my team a little bit today“
The 49-year-old also made it clear that Bayern deserved a better result: „I think we deserved at least one goal and gave away at least 1-2 goals too many. I think our players lack a tick of confidence, a tick of form.“
Even though the starting position is far from perfect, Tuchel has not lost hope of progressing: „Of course, the result is very bitter for us. But football is football, nothing is given away. Now it’s time to move on in the Bundesliga for the first time. I fell in love with my team a little bit today, the way we performed. Even if it sounds stupid, it was really fun today.“
