The opportunity should and must be exploited

One senses that the congenial handball after a heavy season has got the time curve. Only South Africa, then Bavaria. Together with his team-mate Mark van Bommel Arjen Robben and he certainly has big plans. Especially former it moves out here. “Mark always and everywhere the boss!” Side by side want first to ensure a sensation in South Africa, until the focus is on Bayern.

The Bayern Munich celebrate with the fans

About 18 hours was the final defeat at the Champions League against Inter Milan already here, as the FC Bayern Munich and could not be put off by their fans traditionally celebrated on the Marienplatz, the Double.

Champion and cup winner

With a motorcade, it went to the town hall and then left the Bayern cheer from the balcony. The extensive poster on the balcony said: “Mia san Mia! Champion! and: Winners’ Cup, “Although the major European roll is failed, it was celebrated after all, left out the double. Captain Mark van Bommel was shown by Fanandrang surprised: “When I got up this morning, I myself can not imagine that everything is full. The enthusiasm is perhaps even greater than in Milan. ”

Best fans in the world

Even coach Louis van Gaal has been resurrected by the fans: “I thought that I would be dead today morning. But you are the gladioli. We live again – because of our fans. The best in the world. “Phillip Lahm just shrugged his shoulders and said,” What can I say? So I love my hometown. “The Aufbaukur was just right for overwhelmed Bavaria, the disappointment was on the Lost finale still deep in the marrow.

Ribéry thanks the fans

Repeatedly called for the fans that Franck Ribéry announced on the microphone and did the Frenchman then betrayed, and why he stayed in Munich: “I think this season was huge for all season. Lost yesterday – but no matter! I love all the fans of FC Bayern Munich. Thank you! “The love of the fans had done to him, therefore. 2012 is the Champions League final in the Allianz Arena and Karl Heinz Rummenigge, has been the target even before his eyes: “It is my hope that we will again be in the finals – and then pack it.”

Bayern Muchen 0-2 Inter Milan

Had been lost, which were the players of FC Bayern Munich, who fought to the end, quickly realized. Inter Milan was allowed to stretch after the 0-2 victory over the Munich the trophy to the sky, for the Bayern players remained only solace-giving applause. But what went wrong?

Inter concentrated experience

The enemy from Milan made over long distances to confidently impression, even though the Nerazzurri had significantly less possession than the Munich. Nevertheless, the Italians dominated the game. The reason: The iron tactical discipline. The experienced defender Lucio, Samuel and Zanetti gave no nakedness, but completed the job that coach Mourinho had placed them carefully to the heart: to keep the box clean.
Bavaria with problems on the defensive

Apparently, however, was the vulnerability of the Bavaria on the defensive. Presented itself to green, especially in defensive behavior. A Badstuber Holger, who has denied in his first pro season to equal a Champions League final, we may well see his blunders. At 0:1 by Milito he could not intervene, one step was too late. So be it. However, as is made of the supposedly experienced van Buyten from Milito at the decisive goal to dupe 0:2, revealed glaring weaknesses. With such a devastating defender is a player or their performance more simply the maturity sentenced.

Also lacked the ideas forward

But not only the defense of Bavaria should be reported: front worked well enough. Here, too, was one pale, scored no goals. Why? Correct: It was as green as the Bremen 4-0 in the Cup loss to the Munich. Inter had the first goal after the bolt was tight and promptly too tight. Besides Arjen Robben, the Nerazzurri put the impressive cold, Bayern were powerless. In the 46th Minutes, however, Thomas Muller had the giant chance of compensation. Unlike the icy-Inter striker Diego Milito, Müller awarded the opportunity. Obviously, it lacks the Bavarians still necessary to the routine. But from the mistakes of today, tomorrow we can learn again. At least so far in the next season, the locals will face some major successes.
