Thomas Müller spoke about the game against Barca

Müller on accidentally passing the ball to Lewandowski:

“Sadio has been jokingly telling me for the last 10 days to be careful not to accidentally pass the ball to Lewandowski. We have to play our game tomorrow and not focus too much on Lewy.”

Müller on playing without Lewandowski:

“Our connection on the pitch developed over the years. But now we have a lot of flexible players up front and we don’t have that one target man. The opponents don’t know who the target is in attack, but we have to make it work.”

Muller on being extra motivated for the game against Barca:

“There are games that attract more attention, like Champions League games in San Siro or against Barcelona. That’s extra motivation. The attackers might run the extra yard that they might not do in the Bundesliga. It’s sometimes like that.”

Muller on being in contact with Lewandowski:

“I have a good relationship with Lewy, especially on the pitch. Apart from golf, we haven’t done much privately. We had contact via WhatsApp after his move. Of course, things got hot after the draw. Footballers are no different than other people”

Müller on how Bayern’s game plan:

“We want to prevail in the duels and we want to be active when we lose the ball. The game will be open. In the Bundesliga, we recently played against opponents who defended well. I think tomorrow it will be a game that neutral fans will like.”

Müller on the starting Line-up:

“Of course, you always exchange ideas with the coach. But the coach is the expert for load management, tactics, and the line-up. He doesn’t need any tips for that from us. We talk, but that’s normal. The coach is the boss and has the final say, that’s good.”

Julian Nagelsmann also addresses the press and spoke about Fc Barcelona, Pedri, Gavi and Lewandowski.

Nagelsmann on Facing Barca:

“Of course, I know Fc Barcelona well. They made several good signings like Lewy and are a completely different team than the one we faced the last 3-4 times.”

Nagelsmann on Gavi and Pedri:

“They are aggressive and defend high, with midfielders like Gavi & Pedri. I expect a tough game tomorrow.”

Nagelsmann on Lewandowski:

“If I see Lewandowski tomorrow, I will shake hands with him. I’d be happy if our fans welcome him well. That’s normal when someone has given so much to the club. That’s how things should be. He was an important part of the Bayern family. I wish him the best.”

“I don’t know if Lewandowski is their most dangerous player, but I’m sure he’s their biggest goal threat. Lewy has a good presence and makes good runs. But if he doesn’t get the ball, it will be difficult for him to score. Barcelona also have other dangerous players.”
