Reaction to the friendly against Red Bull Salzburg

Julian Nagelsmann: “The first 20 minutes were good. After that, we weren’t as resolute in our defending. We were a bit tired after the strenuous training camp. We still have a bit to do, but there were also plenty of good things. We then had fresh players in the final 30 minutes who were able to up the tempo. The substitutes brought a lot of energy. Mathys Tel had an excellent game, Kingsley was also good. There was good power out there. It was good for a friendly. We can draw our conclusions from it. The important thing is that our batteries are recharged for next Friday against Leipzig.”

Thomas Müller: “We’d imagined things differently in terms of how the game would go, especially in the first half. But that’s nothing new after such a strenuous training camp. The camp was intense in terms of work but also good in terms of quality. We’ll see what that brings us for Friday. We‘ll go there full of confidence and don’t just want to make a statement with this pivotal game but also move away from Leipzig in the table. We’ll catch our breath now for two days and then get fully back to preparing from Monday. We’re confident.“

Daley Blind: “It’s still tough to say where I’m at. The training camp definitely helped me, also because I could get to know my teammates. I feel fit and ready for what’s to come. FC Bayern is a very good club with tradition that speaks for itself, and I’m proud to be here.”

Jamal Musiala: “We obviously would’ve liked to have won, but we worked hard and saw things we can do better. The mood in the team is very good. We’re working hard and looking forward to the league resuming.”

Reaction from the Red Bull Salzburg camp

Matthias Jaissle (Red Bull Salzburg head coach): “If you let a team like Bayern play, then it’s dangerous. They’re ruthless in front of goal. Philipp Köhn was in outstanding form again today. But the young team did really well today. We really put our foot on the gas after the changes at half-time. It was good for where we are in pre-season.”
