Heynckes Lauds Game-changing Muller

share on:

Bayern Munich caretaker, Jupp Heynckes has praised Thomas Muller for changing the game in the 2-1 win over Wolfsburg.

Didavi gave Wolfsburg the lead early in the encounter, however Wagner equalised halfway through the second half.

The winner came in the 91st minute from the spot thanks to Lewandowski, after Robben had seen an earlier penalty saved.

Heynckes praised Muller, who was key to the penalty, after changing the game when he was introduced.

“The substitution of Muller changed our game, because he is very flexible, goes into the space between the lines and creates space for team-mates,” Heynckes said.

“With the early goal, Wolfsburg were able to raise their game and be compact and defensive. We were struggling in the first half because we just didn’t combine well.

“We had possession, but never got deep in Wolfsburg’s half. It was clear to me that we would not get chances like that.

“During the second half we played more fluently and faster, and we are happy. For Wolfsburg, that is very bitter, because they have fought exceedingly.”
