We are very analytical. “

+++ Müller: Hot phase starts now +++
“In the end we have to bring our quality to the place. Now is the starting signal for a phase that is very important to the club. The quality density in the Champions League is now increasing.

I hope that’s what the upgrade is now for that. I like it if there are many appointments. “

In all the teams. That we are not designed are, every ten seconds lead a header duel, is clear. What the goals is concerned, I do not know if it is better than last season. Our defensive was not nobel priced in the past season. This mental question is also taken no matter what the team is explained quickly. The question is, how strong do you want to suffer for the success and how strong is the suffering when the success is missing or you start a goal. We do not want to drive a goal Need pressure from the outside, so as not to suffer setbacks when it comes to the sausage in the coming weeks. “

“Basically, every player is also evaluated individually, but against Bochum I do not think so many players except Lewy and Ulreich, which were 100 percent. I also have to include me. Especially the two-fighting in the first half were bad. In addition, Bochum also plays at home uncomfortable and there is no carpet, as it is the case in the Allianz Arena. There are explanations for this achievement. Nonetheless, we have to be better because we have to be honest to us As a team do not come to our performance. “
+++ Müller: Bayern showed humanity +++
“It is already true that when we lose the self-understanding a small scratches and the honor is kept a bit tickled. With our successes, there is also a certain course of course. Therefore, we may showed this humanity and have not seen it in the Bundesliga is not enough to give 100 percent. We were painfully remembered. We are hot on the upcoming game. However, we do not want to use such defeats as a valve to go back. “We want to draw our teachings.”
