Rummenigge: Long may it continue

It was a “nice weekend" for Bayern, said Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, as Jupp Heynckes’ men beat Stuttgart 2-0 away from home and extended their lead in the Bundesliga standings to 11 points over Bayer Leverkusen, with Dortmund a further point back. “And that's wonderful. Long may it continue," the Bayern chairman smiled.

Boss Heynckes was also “very pleased." In truth, FCB have yet to rediscover their thrilling fluidity and attacking inventiveness since the mid-season break, but the results are more than fine. Furthermore, Sunday's display in Stuttgart was “an improvement," said Matthias Sammer. “We were significantly better than against Fürth," agreed Heynckes.
