Bayern Munich’s Thomas Müller laments missed opportunities against PSG in Champions League

Bayern Munich star Thomas Müller was among many disappointed Bavarians following the team’s 1-0 Champions League win over Paris Saint-Germain. As the team secured the victory, they were eliminated from the competition based on the combined score of 3-3 and PSG’s three away goals.

For Müller it was a heartbreaking feeling as Bayern Munich had the opportunity to score that elusive second goal.

“The course of the match was a bit different from Munich. We got the situation we wanted with the lead, ”said Müller (captured by Tz). “Shortly before half-time we missed some chances to score goals. The referee also got involved with PSG easily falling and screaming. We were unable to continue our pressure phase and were always interrupted. In the end, Paris has a great attack. All in all it’s very disappointing for us, we did ourselves a disservice with the result of the first leg.

Müller, of course, knew what other question he was going to face: a question about the future of manager Hansi Flick. As he has done so many times on the pitch, Müller deftly dodged the opposition and turned his response to talk about how the team have responded to all the injuries they face.

“We have responded well to the many changes. Respect for Paris St. Germain. However, we also had it in our hands, ”said Müller.
