‘SLEEPY’ BAY­ERN’S DROPPED POINTS AN­NOY NEUER

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPORTS -

BAY­ERN MU­NICH goal­keeper Manuel Neuer ad­mit­ted their first dropped Bun­desliga points of the sea­son in yes­ter­day’s 1-1 draw with Cologne was es­pe­cially an­noy­ing fol­low­ing their de­feat at Atletico Madrid. De­feat to Atletico was Bay­ern’s first of the sea­son un­der new boss Ancelotti, but the lack of ur­gency and com­po­sure against Cologne was a cause for con­cern, ad­mit­ted Neuer. “It’s clearly down to us, you could see how lit­tle tempo we had in our game and we were a bit sleepy,” said the Ger­many goal­keeper. “Of course, you have to play at a fast speed against a good team and be able to vary the tempo, which is what we didn’t have to­day. You can’t sus­prise a team like Cologne by play­ing like that. We lost to Atletico this week and taken a point against Cologne, I’ll need at least a night to get my good mood back again.” Bay­ern cen­tre­back Mats Hum­mels said the draw was a warn­ing sign. “I no­ticed that we were ex­plic­itly lack­ing depth in our pat­terns of run­ning, we still have plenty of room for im­prove­ment, but we have been say­ing that for weeks,” said Hum­mels. “The draw is a bit an­noy­ing, but we have 16 points from six games and we’re first.”
