Heynckes hails Bayern Munich performance after hammering Barca 3-0

Heynckes hails Bayern Munich performance after hammering Barca 3-0

Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes was full of praise for his hungry side that thrash mighty Barcelona 7-0 on aggregate to storm into the Champions League final.

Although the German side led 4-0 from the first leg one can hardly notice symptoms of complacency in their rampant performance, as they scored three goals to put the tie beyond doubt. Goals from Robben, Mueller and own goal from Pique helped Bayern to a victory.
Heynckes expressed delight with his side perfectly following his instructions. He said: “I think it was clearly noticeable that my team entered this game extremely focused. We played great right from the start. My team understood our tactical approach very well and they executed it perfectly.

He also revealed he is looking forward to all-German final and hopes his side can lift the trophy: “Dortmund deserve to be in the final, as they are playing a great season as well. Sure, it’s a small surprise that they reached the final. I obviously hope that we can be successful in Wembley.
Heynckes admitted Messi’s absence significantly simplified the task for Bayern, stating: “I know Spanish football very well, especially Barcelona. I know the way they like to play and their philosophy. However, there is no denying it - Barcelona is a different team without [Lionel] Messi. Still, I’m sure no one expected us to win 7-0 on aggregate.”
