Speaking exclusively to Bundesliga.com, Bayern Munich attacker Thomas Müller discussed his performances last season, the rise of Alphonso Davies and the role Hansi Flick has played during his short time as head coach.
“If you imagine it like a share price, the value for both the team and for myself has gone up dramatically since Hansi took over,” said Müller. “I have had a lot of playing time and I was able to put in a lot of good performances on the road to winning the title and gaining the success that we achieved as a team.
“Hansi played a very important role, especially in terms of my positioning on the pitch and my role in the team. We have a strong connection but it is one that only works if we keep winning as a team and if I keep putting in strong performances.”
Thomas Müller on his impressive end to the 2019/20 season.. “We played phenomenally in the second half of the season. I think we ended up having statistically the most successful second half of the season in Bundesliga history. We rode a wave from week to week, we dominated the opposition and we didn’t let anything get in our way. We really had a great desire to push one another and this really built up after the corona break during lockdown. It was very special.”
Thomas Müller on who impressed him during 2020.. “We had a lot of players who performed at the top level, so it’s no wonder that we not only won titles but also got recognition from all over. Even during the treble-winning season in 2013, I can’t remember so many Bayern players being talked about, such as Lewandowski winning UEFA’s footballer of the year. This shows that we set the benchmark in several different positions, such as Alphonso Davies, who surprised and impressed a lot of people. That was very special.”
