As Bayern Munich’s official Twitter account pointed out, ‘two games, eight goals, zero conceded’, these are the team’s ‘Jupptastic'(!) numbers the last few days, after Jupp Heynckes took charge.
The Bundesliga champions beat Celtic 3-0, an important step towards what their coach feels is a must; develop momentum.
It is necessary to develop momentum and win the first few games, either in the Bundesliga or Champions League, where we have ambitions of reaching the next round. For that reason, we cannot afford to experiment much with new players
Heynckes told reporters after the match, answering questions regarding ‘big names’, like Arturo Vidal and James Rodriguez, who had to watch the game from the bench.
I spoke to all the players that weren’t involved today to ensure them that they do have a role in the team, especially with a busy schedule coming up
the German coach said, repeating in public what he had told those players in one-on-one conversations. As for how the game against Celtic went;
We created a lot of chances that we didn’t take advantage of and at the other end let them have a few themselves. We were a bit negligent there and we cannot let that happen. You need to be completely alert from the first to last minute
the Bayern boss said.
