Reaction to Bayern v Fiorentina

Klinsmann: That’s how we want to go on

Bayern’s 3-0 victory over Fiorentina takes the German champions another step closer to a place in the Champions League last sixteen, but also confirms FCB’s improving form with a second victory and clean sheet in a row. “It was a very important win for us today, as it gives us even more impetus for the coming weeks. That’s how we want to go on,“ Jürgen Klinsmann commented afterwards. Bastian Schweinsteiger is already looking ahead to the next match: “Wolfsburg will be very tough opponents this weekend and we’ll have to defend better than that.“

Reaction to Bayern v Fiorentina:

Franz Beckenbauer: “That was very entertaining from both sides. Bayern deserved the win, but perhaps not by that margin. You can’t iron out defensive errors overnight.“

Jürgen Klinsmann: “It was a very important win for us today, as it gives us even more impetus for the coming weeks. That’s how we want to go on. Even in the first ten minutes, I sensed we were up for it, we were awake, we didn’t shirk a tackle, and we put our opponents under pressure. We knew Fiorentina were a good team, capable of counter-attacking at speed, and we knew they’d create chances. I take great confidence from our physical condition. We’re in good shape, and we’re just starting to see the early results of our extremely demanding training over the last three months. The players aren’t pulling up short any more, they have it in them to run 60 yards even as late as the 86th minute. We’re also developing an element of consistency.“
