The Spanish coach says he is proud of his side’s displays in the Bundesliga and Champions League but hopes they can continue to grow
Pep Guardiola has urged his Bayern Munich team to keep improving and open up a bigger gap between them and their Bundesliga rivals before the winter break.
The German champions are seven points clear of second placed Wolfsburg after 14 games and remain unbeaten in the league.
Guardiola feels his side have played well domestically and in the Champions League this term but insists they must keep progressing.
“We have done well so far in the Champions League and been great in the Bundesliga,” he told reporters ahead of the weekend’s clash with Augsburg.
“It’s okay but we can still improve – we didn’t play well in Berlin for example – but our points total is okay.
“Between now and Christmas, we want to try to get some more points and open up more of a gap between us and our rivals.”
“Augsburg will play aggressively and with courage. They have no pressure and have nothing to lose against us.”
Robert Lewandowski has failed to find the net for Bayern in each of the last three games, but the Spanish coach is not worried about his form.
“I am very pleased with Robert Lewandowski. He gets three clear chances per game and does very well. I know his best position is up front but he can also play on the wing.”
