Three goals were enough for Bayern to earn three points against Nürnberg on Sunday and climb three places in the Bundesliga standings, prompting satisfaction in the FCB camp afterwards. “We played some good football today, and the task now is to keep it up,“ said Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. Coach Louis van Gaal felt his team were worthy of “special praise. We were in commanding form today.”

Reaction to Bayern v Nürnberg:

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge: “Our aim was to win and climb a few places in the table, and we’ve done that. We played some good football today, and the task now is to keep it up. But we mustn’t start getting excited, we still have a lot of ground to make up.”

Louis van Gaal: “We were in commanding form today. My team deserve special praise. We were extremely good in the first half. We didn’t allow them a single chance, we scored the opening goal, and we created chances of our own. But it was curious, the way we weren’t so good again in the first ten or 15 minutes after half-time. We wrapped it up with our second goal, Philipp did very well. I think Demichelis played very well in the first half, and Schweinsteiger looked good in his new role.“
