Reaction to Lille v Bayern

Heynckes: Winning is what mattered

Winning was the only thing that really mattered, the Bayern camp agreed after a hard-earned 1-0 win away to obdurate LOSC Lille on Tuesday. “We ground out the win today,” acknowledged boss Jupp Heynckes, “we didn’t play particularly well. The important thing in games like that is to win.“ Franck Ribéry echoed the boss’s comments: “Sometimes you have an off day, but the important thing is the three points.“

Reaction to Lille v Bayern:

Jupp Heynckes: “Winning is what matters when you get a game like that. We ground out the win today, we didn’t play particularly well. But my team battled away and at the end of the day, we fought our way to a deserved victory. You could see we weren’t enjoying it as much as normal and weren’t as prepared to run. Sometimes you have to be satisfied with that kind of performance. The important thing in games like that is to win.“
