Goretzka: We just love playing football
What an astounding performance! FC Bayern beat VfL Bochum 7-0 at the Allianz Arena on Saturday afternoon and stormed to the top of the Bundesliga table. "We didn't give Bochum any breathing space," said Leon Goretzka, playing against his boyhood club. "Today it was a lot of fun for us, not so much for Bochum. Of course, I'm always a bit sorry about that from a personal standpoint," said the midfielder. fcbayern.com has reaction from both camps here.

Reaction from the Bochum camp:Thomas Reis (VfL Bochum head coach): "First of all, on behalf of the entire VfL Bochum, I would like to wish Kingsley Coman a good and speedy recovery. About the game: It's very, very tough when you hear that it's the club's biggest defeat. The first quarter of an hour was still OK. We weren't able to make the most of our counter-attacks. Then you fall behind and disaster takes its course. Congratulations to Bayern, it was absolutely deserved. We paid a heavy price today. Next week we'll put in a better performance." Anthony Losilla (VfL Bochum captain): "I'm a bit lost for words right now. We actually started quite well, got into the game well. But as soon as we conceded the first goal, we lost our structure. Against such strong opponents, you're punished immediately. 7-0 is tough. We have to learn from this. Nobody expected us to get anything here, but we wanted to present ourselves well. Except for the first 15 minutes, unfortunately, it wasn't good enough at all." Manuel Riemann (VfL Bochum goalkeeper): "When you come here and make it so easy for the opponent to score goals, you concede seven. Normally it's maybe two, three or four. We gifted Bayern four goals. They didn't have to do anything. Incredibly tough to take. We were not awake enough in the game."
