Heynckes praises Bayern Munich’s intelligence in Hoffenheim win

Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes lauded the performance of his team after they defeated Hoffenheim 2-0 on Saturday, extending their lead at the top of the Bundesliga over Borussia Dortmund.

A double from Franck Ribery handed the Bavarians a comfortable victory that helped erase memories of their 3-1 Champions League defeat to BATE Borisov in Minsk earlier in the week.

'You have to take into account that we had another tough game on Tuesday, but we still played intelligent and clever football,' exclaimed Heynckes to the club's official website.

'We were highly motivated and took control right from the start. Once we’d taken the lead, I knew our forwards were always good for another goal.

'The most important thing is keeping it tight at the back. We dominated the match and prevented Hoffenheim creating any chances.'

Goal-hero Ribery and midfield linchpin Bastian Schweinsteiger were also impressed, with the French winger stating: 'It was important to win again after losing our last match. Defeats like Tuesday’s do happen, but we’ve reacted well.'

'We have to keep it up now. It was important for our confidence. We’ll try and win all our games. Obviously it’s not easy, but we have a good squad.

'We have to be looking at ourselves, not at what Borussia Dortmund and other clubs are doing.'

''We can’t complain about a record of seven wins,' Schweinsteiger said, summarising the mood in the Bayern camp. 'It’ll be nice and relaxed [going into the international break], because we’ve been playing well.'
