Nagelsmann: We don't set ourselves limits
"It was very good and I'm very proud of this performance," said a delighted Kingsley Coman. With a goal and two assists, the Frenchman was one of many standout players in a commanding 7-0 away win over VfL Bochum, leaving everyone in the FCB camp in high spirits. After the game, Julian Nagelsmann was euphoric, waxing lyrically about the cohesion in his side: "The energy that is in the team, the vibe. Everyone gives everything." He also said after the emphatic victory: "We don't set ourselves any limits." Reaction from both camps here.
Reaction from the Bayern camp:
Julian Nagelsmann: "We're very happy. We don't set ourselves any limits. From a performance perspective, it was important that we brought the consistency we had against Wolfsburg to the game. I said before the game that the first 30 minutes are crucial. Today we scored early to take the lead. We had a very good flow today, in the second half too. I said it after the first two games: the energy that is in the team, the vibe. Everyone gives everything."
Kingsley Coman: "It was very good and I'm very proud of the performance. This is how we want to keep playing. We are in a good frame of mind and we're just having fun playing. We are at full tilt, but we know that today is just an outlier. We always try to give everything. We move a lot and create a lot of opportunities up front. We saw that in abundance today."
Matthijs de Ligt: "First game, first goal and a first clean sheet. The latter is also really important. If you score a goal as a defender, that's great, but of course you also want to keep a clean sheet too. It was important to always stay focused. We did that very well as a team today. We were good in the press and we were relentless. That's how you score seven goals."
Reaction from the Bochum camp:
Thomas Reis (VfL Bochum head coach): "Congratulations to Bayern. We didn't defend well when we conceded. It is what it is. Even though the defeat hurts, we have to get back up and dust ourselves down. The important thing is that the guys pick themselves back up. To Bayern, we wish a lot of success, they have a great team."
Simon Zoller (VfL Bochum striker): "We were badly beaten today. That's majorly disappointing. From kickoff, we were spineless and constantly gave the ball away to our opponents. That's how we were shown up. It's hard to explain. We have a lot of new players and are still finding our feet. It's a really tough pill to swallow."
