Bayern Munich chairman, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has come out to admit that he was shocked by the team’s muted celebrations after their UCL defeat vs Barcelona.
He recently hailed his club’s collective focus as they seek UCL glory this season.
According to him, when he visited the locker room after the game, he expected the guys to be celebrating the victory, but they all stayed calm and focused.
He added that Hansi Flick changed Bayern’s season and everyone is surprised at how well he did it.
His words, “I went to the locker room after the game and I was expecting the guys to be celebrating this great victory,”
“But I saw them there, very calm and focused instead, [and] ready for the next game.”
“They continued training at home when that was not possible on the pitch. When the Bundesliga and the Champions League restarted, they showed that they want to play football.”
“Hansi Flick changed our season,”
“I have to admit that even we are surprised at how well he did it.
“Alphonso Davies has an incredible pace and a great will to learn. He was bought as a left winger and is now a left-back – and as that, he is indispensable for the team today.”
“As for Perisic, he may not do spectacular things, but he scores goals and gets assists. We really appreciate the fact that he’s stayed until the end of the Champions League season even though we had to cut their salaries. He hasn’t made a final decision yet [regarding his future] but both I and Flick like him a lot.”
