Bayern's Season Can't Be Better Than This- Says Heynckes

Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes has praised his side's start to the season but admitted that their display in the 2-0 DFB-Pokal win against Augsburg was "an off-day".

Bayern's Season Can't Be Better Than This- Says Heynckes

Goals from Mario Gomez and Xherdan Shaqiri either side of half time wrapped up the win for the Bundesliga leaders, despite Bayern going down to 10 men.

"We knew it would be extremely tough," Heynckes told the club's official website.

"It's the last match of the year. The players have already moved on mentally.

"We didn't play well in the first half. In particular, our switching from defence to attack malfunctioned. We've had a lot of matches so far this season, and you have to accept you'll have an off day."

Despite Franck Ribery picking up a red card in the 47th minute for slapping Ja-Cheol Koo, Bayern were able to close out the victory, but Heynckes remained critical of Ribery's reaction despite winning the match.

 "We were much better in defence after the substitutions, and I knew we'd always be a threat on the break.

"Overall I'm very satisfied, because we've been outstanding for long periods in the first half of the season. It can't go better than this," he said.
