Müller: Perhaps we'll give Robben a call
It was an exciting Sunday evening for FC Bayern. Aside from the thrilling draw in the highly-billed match against Leipzig, Bayern were also drawn out of the hat for the next round of the DFB Cup: Bayern are to face FC Schalke. Thomas Müller immediately reflected on the legendary semi-final against Schalke in 2010, which was decided by an "incredible solo" goal by Arjen Robben in extra time. "Arjen may not play for us anymore, but perhaps we'll call him up and bring him back from retirement," said the forward. Captain Manuel Neuer saw it similarly and was looking forward to a match against his hometown club: "They are good opponents. Personally I am always happy to go back to Gelsenkirchen." *fcbayern.com*has compiled the comments on the draw.

We could have got an easier draw, but we'll take it and we'll play to win" Manuel Neuer: "They are good opponents. In the cup it's quite a different prospect. It'll not be easy for us. Personally, I'm always happy to go back to Gelsenkirchen. I'm looking forward to the game."
