Rummenigge: We're on the right track

Postby FCBayernNews » Sat Feb 23, 2013 8:00 pm

Bayern thrashed Werder Bremen 6-1 to make it 19 league victories this season and continue their imperious progress at the top of the Bundesliga. It was the perfect way to mark Jupp Heynckes' 1000th Bundesliga contest, and was also a confidence-booster ahead of the DFB Cup showdown with Dortmund. "My team did very well and scored some good goals," the head coach commented.

Reaction to Bayern v Bremen

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge: "It was a very good game. We maintained a high level of concentration. The coach chose to rotate his squad, but as we all saw, the players who came in were focused and motivated, and there was fundamentally no difference to the performance against Arsenal. Our declared goal is to win the league. It's the most important trophy, and we're on the right track."

Jupp Heynckes: "We needed a little time to find our rhythm, but we settled after scoring the first two goals. Then they had a player sent off. With Bremen down to ten men, we were good at letting the ball do the work. My team did very well and scored some good goals. We want to maintain our rhythm, continue on our way, and not be put off by premature congratulations from anywhere. We go out seeking to play even better, more successful football."

Arjen Robben: "It was important to win again today and maintain our rhythm. A score of 6-1 sounds easy, but it's obviously not easy if you come into a game like this without match practice. There were six new players on the field, so huge credit to all the players. After going 4-0 up we weren't as focused and we eased off by a couple of percent. You can always let in a goal in those circumstances, but it's a shame, especially for Manuel, who obviously wants to keep clean sheets. Wednesday will be a totally different game at a very high level. It'll come down to tiny details."

Thomas Schaaf (Bremen coach): "It was the tough challenge we expected. Bayern are in absolutely superb form at the moment. We made a very good start and our shape was excellent. We did many things very well. But if you let your tactical guard drop against these opponents, they'll simply exploit the gaps. We basically did very well with ten men until Bayern fired up their engines again at the end. We're disappointed about an unsatisfactory afternoon. We wanted to put up more resistance, but we were in no position to do so. We've been handed a nasty beating here today."
