For all the importance of next Tuesday’s trip to face Juventus, Louis van Gaal has ordered his men to focus exclusively on the Bundesliga meeting with Borussia Mönchengladbach on Friday (Live in English from 8.15 pm CET on FCB.tv Web Radio). “The mark of a top professional is the ability to concentrate on the next game, which is Gladbach. Juventus has to wait,” the Bayern coach admonished.
The priority for now is three points at home to Borussia. “I’ve only been thinking about Gladbach. It’s a game we have to win,” said Van Gaal. There should be no talk of the do-or-die showdown in Turin until after the final whistle on Friday evening. “The really decisive match is tomorrow,” the 58-year-old declared on the eve of the Allianz Arena clash.
