CEO Oliver Kahn noticeably tightens the reins and demands “total readiness” from the players of the German record champions Bayern Munich to win. “We are now in the decisive phase of the season – of course our goal must be to consistently deliver top performances. There is no question that we have the quality for big titles,” Kahn told kicker.
It’s “always about total readiness, greed, will and at the same time a certain lightness,” said Kahn: “If we put that on the pitch, we can’t be beat.”
In the Champions League, he couldn’t see any fluctuations in performance, even given the 1-0 win in the round of 16 first leg at Paris St. Germain, “more so in the Bundesliga. Because we definitely dropped too many points, the fight for the top is on very exciting at the moment.”
Bayern are top of the table on points with Borussia Dortmund and their next opponent Union Berlin.
The home game on Sunday (5.30 p.m. / DAZN) is the first big opportunity to put things right: “Although many are certainly happy about this, we at Bayern want to make things clear again as soon as possible – and start against Union Berlin. “
