Hecking: Wolfsburg Do Not Fear Bayern

share on:

I think he should be scared, but Wolfsburg manager, Dieter Hecking says they will not be afraid to face Bayern, despite losing 5-1 to the team last month.

Wolfsburg were in front for most of the first half and opening minutes of the second, but Lewandowski came on and put five into the net in the space of nine minutes to claim victory for Bayern.

But as they prepare to face this same team in the dfb pokal, Hecking says they will play without fear in their hearts.

“I think that we can’t refer to the last games when we talk about this match,” Hecking told a news conference. “We win or we are out of the competition.

“We still have ambitions to win, even if Bayern Munich is in a very good condition. We want to move to the next round. I will tell my team what we need to achieve this goal.

“In the last three games there were always parts of the game we did really well and we showed how it could work. We need to focus on this so we will have a great cup evening.

“We are not the favourite, but we are also not the team that should be afraid. If we will play with confidence we will have our chances.

“I’m not that pessimistic. After the three games we won, we know that we are playing well. So I’m looking forward to the game.”

Hecking also brushed off any concerns over coming face-to-face with Lewandowski again, jokingly suggesting opposite number Pep Guardiola may rest the in-form striker.

“Do you know if he plays?” Hecking asked reporters. “No? Me neither! So you think he plays? Yeah, I don’t care.”
