FC Bayern, News: Müller with a declaration of war
FC Bayern is still only second in the Bundesliga behind Union Berlin. If Thomas Müller has his way, this situation will change in the three remaining game days before the World Cup break. “Our goal is to be top of the table again before the World Cup break. It’s important for the club that we finish the first chapter of the season positively and are at the top of the league. That’s where we belong,” wrote Müller in his monthly newsletter.
Most recently, the Munich team won seven competitive games in a row. “In the last few weeks we’ve had one of the best phases in a long time. The results were good, but more importantly, our performance has also steadily improved,” said the 33-year-old, who is currently struggling with hip problems.
“We created a lot of chances and used them efficiently, defended passionately, conceded a few goals and played our own game with confidence,” Müller continued: “We were able to achieve what everyone was talking about after Lewy left. Who’s going to shoot them now? Whole goals at FC Bayern? Answer: all!”
The offensive player has played in 15 competitive games this season. He scored three goals and prepared six more goals.
