Reaction to Gladbach v FCB

Guardiola: Plenty of chances, no goals

“It's our own fault,” a self-critical Franck Ribéry concluded after Bayern’s first Bundesliga defeat of the season. “After the first half we have to be 2-0 or 3-0 in the lead,” the Frenchman said after the 3-1 defeat in Gladbach. Pep Guardiola agreed, finding fault with his team’s passing game: “We mustn't neglect the core of our play, as we’ve seen in this match.”

Reaction to Gladbach v Bayern

Pep Guardiola: “Congratulations to Borussia. We were very strong in the first half and created plenty of chances, but scored no goals. After the break it was very complicated, we lost possession too often. You can always concede a goal, but after that we lost our discipline. That wasn't good, we let them get at us on the break, and that was the reason we lost. We mustn't neglect the core of our play, as we’ve seen in this match.”

Franck Ribéry: “It's our own fault. After the first half we have to be 2-0 or 3-0 in the lead. But Gladbach did well and took all their chances. It's a pity. We have to keep going.”

André Schubert (Gladbach coach): “A huge compliment to my team. In the first half we had some problems and we enjoyed the bit of luck you need to not fall behind. After the break the lads did very well. After the opener we were even more confident, and we went on to wrap it up.”
