Heynckes preaches patience
Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes has said that his side still have a lot of room for improvement, despite them edging closer to a UEFA Champions League group stage berth with a 2-0 win over FC Zurich last night.
The Bavarians needed over an hour following Bastian Schweinsteiger's early goal to put the result and possibly the tie beyond their Swiss opponents. and Heynckes could understand the fans' frustration inside the Allianz Arena.
"I cannot predict when we will start to play how I would like us to play," he said. "We have got to be patient. We are not yet able to fulfil the enormous expectations."
Arjen Robben, who gave Bayern a bit of breathing space with his 72nd minute goal, felt his team-mates did not show enough passion - himself included. "We need to solve this," he said. "We are not playing aggressively enough going forward.
"We are not creating enough chances and it is going to be tough against better opponents. It all starts with showing more passion and we did not show that, nor did I personally."
Bayern will look to complete the job when they head to the Letzigrund next Tuesday, but goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is not taking anything for granted. "It is going to be another tough game there," he said. "Zurich will attack a lot more in their home game than they did here."
