'It was a perfect day, a perfect match'

FC Bayern won their home match against Hamburger SV 8-0 on Saturday, maintaining their five-point lead in the Bundesliga and warming up in style for the DFB Cup last eight tie against FC Schalke. The Bayern pros presented boss Carlo Ancelotti with an impressive display on the occasion of his 1000th match as a coach. "I didn't expect it to work so well, we did a very good job. I'm very happy, and for the next match I wish for the same attitude and the same spirit."

Reaction to Bayern v Hamburger SV

Carlo Ancelotti: "It was a perfect day, a perfect match. We played well, with good attitude. I told my players before the match to turn in a good display on the occasion of my milestone. I didn't expect it to work so well, we did a very good job. I'm very happy, and for the next match I wish for the same attitude and the same spirit."

Thomas Müller: "It way really fun. At some point it took care of itself. If you win 8-0 in nice weather conditions and an outstanding atmosphere at the Arena, you can be very pleased as a club, as a team, as a fan."

Markus Gisdol (Hamburger SV coach): "It hurts today, and rightly so. We have to stomach and come to terms with a very clear-cut result against us. We weren't serious opponents at any point today. Bayern played very well today, whereas we didn't. We were too awestruck, and our opponents exploited it very well."

René Adler (Hamburger SV keeper): "We've never found our way into the game, it seemed we didn't win a single one-on-one in the first half. Bayern dealt us a blow. The way we lost doesn't only hurt, it's just unacceptable."
