Although the current European champion is about to be eliminated, as they travel to the Champions League quarterfinals with Paris Saint-Germain after 2: 3 at his stadium, some German journalists were more interested in the shaky relationship between coach Hansi Flick and sports director Hasan Salihamidzic the day before the match in Paris.
. It annoyed Thomas Muller ... The goal scorer of the Bavarian giant did not want to talk about that topic. "When I was younger, Bayern had the nickname FC Hollywood. There was talk and writing about various topics because Bayern is always interesting to everyone."
"But that doesn't concern us, we do our job. Bayern is at the helm of German football and our job is to make him even stronger and better." "We must always do our best for that, especially in such important games.
If someone becomes too soft, there are others to help him," Muller said on the eve of his trip to France. The experienced striker refused to comment on the possible return to the German national team. "I don't know if we speak a different language, so we don't understand each other? There is nothing new.
There will be time to talk about this topic at the end of April or the beginning of May," Miller told reporters. There were, of course, questions related to the duel with Paris Saint-Germain. "A victory would be of great importance for us.
We have been working on defending the trophy since September. We have personnel problems, but we are mentally and with the quality of the game capable of playing this match well."
Lewandowski and Mbappe
The 31-year-old Bavarian has been at Bayern since the beginning of his career.
He went through a lot with the club from Munich, which he especially pointed out. "When you have been in football for so long, you know that anything is possible. I have been through a lot of good and bad. There are critical periods, but at Bayern, we want to turn such situations in our favor."
Muller also referred to tactical ideas. It was evident in the first game that Bayern missed Robert Lewandowski, who returned to training on Monday despite the announcement that he would take a break for four weeks. "We will not enter the game with five strikers and then wait to see what will happen in defense.
We will normally enter this match normally as before. It is important to weigh the risk well in every situation. We will look for a quick goal, but we will be careful." He followed up the previous statement by mentioning Kylian Mbappe.
"He is a very dangerous striker, and our style of play automatically leaves a lot of space behind. In PSG, Neymar and Mbappe mostly stay ahead, do not return to the defense but wait for a counterattack. It is certain that our defense will face a big challenge," Muller concluded
