Van Gaal: That was a wonderful display

Bayern’s response to Schalke briefly reclaiming top spot in the Bundesliga was impressive and clinical: FCB beat sorry Hannover 7-0 with an exhilarating display of attacking skill, leaving Mirko Slomka’s stricken side without a hint of a chance. Munich remain well-placed in the title race, and high on confidence ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Olympique Lyon.

Reaction to Bayern v Hannover

Louis van Gaal: “I’m delighted with the way we let the ball do the work today. That’s the most important thing. If we do that, we have players who can make the difference, as we saw yet again today. Arjen Robben can make the difference, as can Franck Ribery, and so can Thomas Müller. They’ve all proved that. Obviously, it’s good for Arjen to score three, but I have to look at the game as a whole. It was a wonderful display today, and it was clearly pleasing for the crowd.“
