Niko Kovac was a happy manager after he saw Bayern Munich grab a 4-1 win over Bundesliga strugglers VfB Stuttgart. After Borussia Dortmund smashed Hannover 96 on Saturday, Bayern kept within six points of the Bundesliga leaders with Sunday’s victory.
After the game Kovac acknowledged his side had a slow start to the game. “We get into the game well by making it 1-0. After that we played too slowly, had too many people behind the ball and failed to break the block the Stuttgart had built. It was much better in the second half. We played faster and more vertically and managed to bring our individual class into play.”
“We then have earned the win with the variety of opportunities created. It means we can check off a win and continue”, Kovac added. Bayern Munich will face Bayer Leverkusen in their next game before they travel to Berlin to face Hertha in the DFB-Pokal. In the Champions League the German giants will face Premier League leaders Liverpool.
