Bayern Munich boss Hansi Flick wasn’t too impressed with the performance of his side in the German Super Cup final against Borussia Dortmund. The reigning Bundesliga champions took a 2-0 lead but they then allowed Dortmund to fight back and level the score. It even took an amazing save by Manuel Neuer to keep Dortmund from taking a 3-2 lead through Erling Haaland. In the 82nd minute Joshua Kimmich scored the decisive 3-2 to hand Bayern their first silverware of the 2020-21 campaign.
While Flick was adamant that winning the trophy was the most important, the Bayern boss did insist he side should have done better after going up 2-0 after only 32 minutes of play. “We wanted to win the game, but it was really not so easy. We deserved to lead 2-0 and then made life difficult for ourselves,” head coach Flick said. “However, what counts for me is that we won the game and everything else is something that we’ll want to do better on Sunday.”
Bayern captain Neuer agreed with his boss as he also insisted that winning the game was the only thing that mattered in the Super Cup Final. “You know that you’re playing against a strong team, so something can always happen and we saw that today. It was our fault that we let Dortmund back into the game. You can’t always assume you’re going to score three goals, but at the end Joshua Kimmich did well.”
