SOT, Leon Goretzka, FC Bayern player (German): "I feel much better than last year and I think that year by year it will feel more and more native to the question of how it is to be dressed in lederhosen and traditional costumes."

M/S Journalists *CUTAWAY*

SOT, Leon Goretzka, FC Bayern player (German): "Yesterday I think the game didn't quite reflect the result, of course the result is clear in the end, but I think we were really upset at the beginning, but still good that we could win the game and still 4 goals were shot."

SOT, Joshua Kimmich, FC Bayern player (German): "I prefer it even if we wear the lederhosen for Oktoberfest. Now for such a short photo you put it on and off, but it's even nicer if you spend a few more hours in the leather pants."

M/S Kimmich *CUTAWAY*

SOT, Joshua Kimmich, FC Bayern player (German): "We have to look after ourselves, we still have some work to do, we've already lost points, there are still plenty of matches to go from here. If we get our points, then we will [win] German champion again, we still have to work hard."

SOT, Joshua Kimmich, FC Bayern player (German): "Leipzig started well with three wins, we are behind, so of course we do not want to be there for long. We prefer to be at the top and we can take care of that with our next game. In Leipzig you can directly put an exclamation point there."

SOT, Joshua Kimmich, FC Bayern player (German): "It is definitely a good time to play against Leipzig, they are in a good mood and we see [it] too, let's say, where we stand. Now we have three games and we have the international break and then it gets down to business with Leipzig and then with the Champions League."
