Leon Goretzka says about ‘more criticism in the last few week

With a tenacious 2-0 victory over Hertha BSC yesterday, the Bavarians snapped a four-game losing skid and reclaimed first place in the Bundesliga. The Allianz Arena crowd was agitated, Bayern Munich was unimpressive against a weaker opponent. In addition disgruntled supporters expressed their anger online.

The score was tied at 0-0 at the half, and while Bayern Munich would go on to beat Hertha Berlin 2-0, there were a few jeers directed at the struggling Bavarians as they exited the locker room. The local media’s criticism of the players in light of Thomas Tuchel’s in-game antics, post-match statements, and recent articles speculating about who could be joining and who might be leaving the roster may be a larger problem for Bayern Munich than how the players reacted to it.

After the game, Goretzka discussed how difficult the previous few weeks had been for the Bayern team in an interview with Sport1.

“There’s a lot of noise around the club. Players are completely destroyed in the media. It certainly doesn’t help. As players we have to put up with a lot at the moment. Whether it’s right or not doesn’t really matter. It’s not nice,” the midfielder said.

“We’ve been around long enough to know that’s part of it. That’s why we have to give our answers on the pitch.”, said Goretzka

“I think some [players] have gotten more [criticism] in the last few weeks. We’ll give the answers on the pitch. Anything else won’t help. We have all learned that by now.”
