Reaction to Freiburg v Bayern

Pep Guardiola: "Freiburg wanted it more and showed more fighting spirit in chasing the win. It's not been easy for us since winning the league. We have one more match before we head off on holiday and into the future."

Jérôme Boateng: "We just have to play better football than we did today. We owe our fans an apology for that."

Christian Streich (SC Freiburg coach): "We have great character in the team. We decided to play defensively because we saw no alternative. Luck was on our side today, no question about that, but we've been very unlucky so often this season. We've earned the win today."

Jochen Saier (SC Freiburg sporting director): "From our point of view, today was the right point in time to beat Bayern again at last. Bayern took it seriously today, they fielded their best team. We were very, very good and focused in the second half. We now have a final in Hannover and we'll have to be very well prepared."
