Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel makes bold statement after defeating Manchester United

Thomas Tuchel believes Bayern Munich’s performance against Manchester United was their best in the Champions League this season.

Although Bayern had already won Group A in the Champions League before making the trip to Old Trafford, Tuchel named his strongest possible team after a heavy loss in the Bundesliga last weekend.

The likes of Harry Kane, Manuel Neur, Leroy Sane, Jamal Musiala and Kingsley Coman all started the match and it was the latter who broke the deadlock in the second half to make it 1-0 to Bayern. United struggled to create any clear-cut chances throughout the 90 minutes and the defeat condemned them to crash out of European competition before Christmas.

“It was one of our best performances in the Champions League this season, the level of concentration and the level of defensive actions and winning duels, so this is the attitude we’re looking for,” Tuchel told TNT Sports.

“We didn’t have it last weekend, but it’s about showing a reaction and the team did that. Now it’s on us to keep that level.”

Bayern goalkeeper Neur added: “We were very angry about our performance against Frankfurt. We showed a reaction today. The coach was very happy; he said he was proud on the sidelines. We gave everything and that’s why we won today.
