Bayern Munich boss Niko Kovac has said that the team need to improve on the decision-making after squandering the opportunity to secure another victory. Serge Gnabry’s 80th-minute strike appeared to have earned Bayern the three points against Freiburg last weekend but they were pegged back nine minutes later after a poor bit of judgement at the back allowed Lucas Holer to grab the equaliser.
With the stalemate, the reigning champions find themselves four points behind league leaders Borussia Dortmund and Kovac was certainly not pleased with the result after failing to shut up shop towards the end of the game, he told the club’s official website: “We got off to a good start, we were very flexible, moved well and let the ball do the work. We tried to attack down the wings, but it was difficult because they doubled up on us.
“So we had to try it down the centre, which wasn't exactly empty either. We should have scored the opener through Lewandowski, it would have been much easier then. We piled forward in the second half. We took the lead, and we as FC Bayern mustn't squander that. We have to clear the ball earlier instead of playing the ball at the back. But it is as it is. It was in the 89th minute against Augsburg too, so we're talking about four points. We're disappointed.”
“Bayern have been far from convincing during the first half of the current season“ and their inconsistent form sees them still chasing Dortmund for the top spot. Their European campaign has been slightly better with seven points from their opening three group stage matches but “they have been guilty“ of being wayward with their attempts when approaching goal.
Owing to this, there have been reports indicating that they could part ways with Kovac but that does not appear like happening for the moment with the hierarchy continuing to offer their entire support to the Croatian. Bayern are scheduled to entertain AEK Athens in their homeground for the midweek Champions League encounter.
