Cape Town - The Bayern Munich squad was wholly satisfied with the 6-0 demolition job done on Werder Bremen at the Allianz Arena on Saturday.
The win was Bayern’s sixth of the season, and their fourth in the last five matches. After getting their campaign off to a slow start, the Bavarians are clearly gathering great momentum and entrenching their status as the foremost club in Germany.
The one man who came under severe scrutiny when all was not going according to script, was manager Pep Guardiola. Naturally he is delighted by the outcome this weekend and is positive that his players now have something to build on as the season progresses.
"It’s always a little tough after international breaks but we played well. Our attitude, organisation and transitions were good," Guardiola told journalists.
"It was much easier once we scored the first goal. It’s another three points to us, and we’ll now concentrate on the Champions League," added the Spaniard, who has already started plotting for his club’s trip to the Eternal City on Tuesday.
Thomas Muller has featured prominently during this season’s campaign has been Thomas Muller, and the forward continues to terrorise opposition defences. In past matches he has expressed his displeasure with the way that the season started.
However, he had absolutely no complaints this weekend.
"We’re delighted for our fans, nothing more and nothing less. We’re very pleased with a 6-0 win, although it’s not as though it was offered us on a plate, even if it may have looked easy from the outside," said Muller.
"You always have to work hard for six goals, win the challenges, cover the ground and create chances. It’s tough for every team coming to Munich and it’s even more difficult if you’re on a poor run."
