Following Naldo’s dismissal after just quarter of an hour, Bayern benefited from a numerical advantage over Werder Bremen for fully 75 minutes on Sunday, but the champions had to make do with a point by the end. “In the second half, we no longer showed the urgency you need to win a game like that,” Jürgen Klinsmann complained. “We lacked an edge in front of goal today,“ Tim Borowski agreed.
Reaction to Werder Bremen v Bayern:
Jürgen Klinsmann: “In the second half, we no longer showed the urgency you need to win a game like that. However, we’re not dissatisfied. Obviously, we’d have liked all three points, but going home with a point isn’t a bad result, although it’s only a small step forward. It was important to at least draw here. The title race will go to the last day. Obviously, we’d rather be a couple of places higher up the table. But we’re on the case, we won’t let up, and we hope we’re top after 34 matches.“
Hamit Altintop: “We shouldn’t concern ourselves with the table. We simply have to go out and do the jobs the coach gives us to do. The most important thing is for all of us to try and get stuck in where it hurts. We’re too reticent, we’re being too nice.“
Tim Borowski: “We lacked an edge in front of goal today. We created a few good chances, but Bremen resisted well and had a good keeper, who made a number of great saves. We also didn’t get the rub of the green at times.“
