'Not the perfect start'

Coach and players see room for improvement

Bayern lie eleventh in the embryonic Bundesliga table after draws in their first two fixtures, exactly the patchy start the coach and senior officials had always predicted. After the opening day stalemate away to Hoffenheim, the country’s most successful club were again held 1-1, this time at home to Werder Bremen. However, there were many positive signs after the second match of the new campaign.

“Obviously, it’s a less than perfect start, although we could have come away with more from both Hoffenheim and today’s game,” reflected keeper Michael Rensing after the final whistle at the Allianz Arena on Saturday. “We’re not happy, but we’re not completely dissatisfied either. I think we improved compared to the Hoffenheim match,” the shot-stopper summarised.
