There have also been moments when Müller went through his head: “Wow, my teammate put the ball back for me quickly, without a long duel with the defender.” With “speed” and “playfulness” Bayern are trying to absorb Lewandowski’s departure.
“With the quality that we have on offense, we can definitely score a lot of goals without a real striker,” said Müller. probably won’t stop – but we have to and can live with that.”
