Bayern Munich manager Nico Kovac has revealed the team is sad and angry after their 1-1 draw against Freiburg on Saturday.

After failing to win in the Bundesliga, Kovac said the players were hurting and disappointed with the outcome of the game, after conceding a late equalizer.

Germany international, Serge Gnabry’s goal was cancelled out by Freiburg’s Lucas Holer in the 89th minute at the Allianz Arena as Bayern fell four points behind league leaders Borussia Dortmund.

Kovac, who is set to come under intense scrutiny once more, said coughing up points so late was a blow to the defending champions.

“Against Augsburg, we lost the points in the 89th minute and [against Freiburg] was the same. These were four points that are missing now,” he told a news conference, according to FourFourTwo.

“We’re angry and sad about that. This is the sport and this is life. We have to play the next match in three days and we want to win it.”
Former Arsenal winger, Serge Gnabry found the net with a low strike to give the Bavarians an 80th-minute lead, but Holer tucked away a Christian Gunter cross to earn Freiburg a point.

Bayern next turn their attention to the UEFA Champions League, where they’ll be hosting Greek side, AEK Athens in their fourth group game of the competition this season.
