Muller: We are still Bayern

Bayern Munich striker Thomas Muller has spoken about their 3-1 victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Tuesday

Thomas Muller invited Paris Saint-Germain’s admirers to ease “off the gas” after Bayern Munich gained a measure of Champions League revenge against the Ligue 1 leaders, GOAL understands.

It was their second rendezvous this season in the Champions League, with the Ligue 1 leaders winning their first game 3-0 in Paris in September. That loss resulted in the sacking of former Bayern head coach Carlo Ancelotti.

However, the Bundesliga side did not forget what happened in the French capital and went out on the pitch with a strong desire to show PSG who they really are.

Jupp Heynckes’ men secured a 3-1 win, which wasn’t enough to snatch the top-spot of Group B, however Robert Lewandowski’s early goal before a double from Corentin Tolisso restored their pride.

Thomas Muller joined the game as a second-half substitute and after the final whistle, he reminded reporters of Bayern’s strength.

“I think we won 3-1. Of course, PSG had one or two good chances, but you did not feel that another team was superior to us here. We are still Bayern,” the attacker explained.

“When it was 3-0 in Paris, we had a corner ratio of 18-1 for us and it is pretended that PSG had a potion or something. Of course, they have very good offensive players, but you should be off the gas when it comes to talking up other teams.”

Muller went on to criticise the referees officiating Tuesday’s showdown between them and the French giants, as he thought the visitors were the beneficiaries of the decisions made by the referees sometimes.

“I think the referee also read your articles because I felt I had an away game in Paris as to how much the referee protected the PSG players. So, we are still Bayern,” the German concluded.
