The Tigers have lost their first match at the start of 2022 after allowing the youngsters to sting again with a 2-1 win in the Bundesliga on Friday night.
Muller opened up: “The first half was a bit weird, we controlled the game in the first 25 minutes. But then conceded the equalizer from nothing. And then we didn’t play well in the last 15 minutes of the first half. We couldn’t set up the game and lost a lot of balls.”
“We tried again in the second half. We don’t play badly. But not everyone is perfect, we hit the post and Yann Sommer has some serious saves.”
When asked why the loss was due to the team’s lack of many players, especially among those who tested positive for coronavirus, including Manuel Neuer, Kingsley Coman, Alfonso Davis, Go. Rantin Tolisso, Omar Richards, Lucas Hernandez, Leroy Sane, Tanguy Naingsu and Dayot Upamecano.
Muller replied: “I don’t know. A lot of things happen in football. We might have more options, I don’t know. No one said Gladbach played bad, but I don’t think they deserved to win.
