On Saturday, Bayern failed to take advantage of their biggest chance yet to go top of the Bundesliga for the first time this season. Instead, a 2-1 defeat away to Hertha BSC saw the champions slip to fourth in the standings. “We haven’t been as close as we were on Saturday,“ Karl-Heinz Rummenigge reflected on Monday in conversation with fcbayern.de. The chairman analysed the missed opportunity and discussed the current situation at the club.
Interview: Karl-Heinz Rummenigge
fcbayern.de: Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, two days after Bayern’s defeat in a top-of-the-table clash, how are you feeling?
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge: “What happened on Saturday in Berlin was really irritating, because it was a huge opportunity to go top. We’ve been working our way towards it for a while now, and we haven’t been as close as we were on Saturday.“
fcbayern.de: The defeat in Berlin was Bayern’s second in their third league fixture since the winter break. What are the reasons?
Rummenigge: “We’re playing good football, and we were the better team in both Hamburg and Berlin. But we have two big areas for improvement: on the one hand, we have to cut out the defensive errors which led to Hertha’s opening goal, and on the other, we have to take more of our chances.“
