Bayern Munich-Raja Casablanca: Quotes

Bayern Munich's Spanish head coach Pep Guardiola

“Five trophies in a year is massive success for FC Bayern. I’m delighted for the club and very proud of the players and the supporters. Now we have a two-week break, after which we’ll come back and take the upcoming challenges in our stride. We’re happy with what we’ve achieved but we’re already looking forward. It was clear to my players that they would need to give it everything to win this tournament. We played well in the first 25 minutes, but after that we put them under less pressure and created too few opportunities.” Pep Guardiola, Bayern Munich coach

“I had faith in our abilities but unfortunately my players weren’t quite able to execute what we had planned. Perhaps we were slightly nervous at the start, but in the second half it was an even game and we even had a chance to score. Still, a 2-0 defeat against Bayern is very respectable, even if we’d obviously love to have won the title. Now we have to get back to reality and concentrate on the Moroccan championship again. My players will need some time to recover their strength. This was a very tough tournament for them, both physically and mentally.” Faouzi Benzarti, Raja Casablanca coach.
