Reaction to Bayern v 1. FC Nürnberg

Postby FCBayernNews » Mon Oct 08, 2007 12:49 pm


Following Sunday’s decisive 3-0 victory at home to Nürnberg, Bayern boss Ottmar Hitzfeld praised his team for their focus and discipline from the word go, although he lamented a string of missed chances in the second half which almost allowed the visitors a way back into the match.

<b>Reaction to Bayern v 1. FC Nürnberg</b>

<b>Ottmar Hitzfeld:</b> “We had a difficult UEFA Cup tie in midweek, so it was important to find our rhythm again straightaway. I was delighted with the way we took control of our opponents. We concentrated hard from the start, and we could have been further ahead by half time. I was very pleased with our approach today, we passed well and put them under pressure. The first goal was simply a matter of time, but we still had to find a way through their packed defence. Luca Toni’s goal cleared the way for us. We missed a few chances in the second half, and it was suddenly on a knife-edge when Nürnberg created two or three good openings. But we were very disciplined until the closing stages, although it could have been a close-run thing if they’d pulled one back.“

<b>Michael Rensing:</b> “Getting a chance to play for a few weeks in a row is a great experience. I want us to win every game we play and keep a clean sheet in every match. We’re hoping to pick up a few trophies this season.“

<b>Hans Meyer (Nürnberg coach):</b> “I’m a lot less disappointed than you might think. We’ve lost to a team who are better than us in every respect. It’s incredible how well Bayern played to their individual strengths today. Every football fan should be delighted that Bayern succeeded in signing Ribéry. Andreas Wolf was totally unable to get a grip on him, which is why I took him off. The opening goal was the beginning of the end. You only have a chance of looking good against Bayern when two things happen: everything has to work perfectly for you, and they have to run into trouble. There was only a very slight chance of us taking anything from the game today.“

<b>Zvjezdan Misimovic (Nürnberg, ex-Bayern):</b> “It was tough today, and we showed them too much respect. We had a chance or two, but the win by a three-goal margin is a fair result.“
