Germany: Interim Bayern coach says team is ready for Dortmund clash

Germany, Munich
November 08, 2019 at 18:05 GMT +00:00 · Published

The newly appointed interim coach of FC Bayern Munich Hans-Dieter Flick said that his team will seek to focus on its defensive performance at a press conference in Munich on Friday ahead of their Bundesliga game against Borrusia Dortmund. The statements come after his first victory against Olympiakos on Wednesday, just one day after taking over the team in the wake of Niko Kovac's departure.

The former FC Bayern midfielder stated that his main focus as an interim manager is to build a strong defence.

The team is coming to a week since they lost a humiliating 5-1 match against Eintracht Frankfurt which resulted in the departure of Niko Kovac and for Flick, his upcoming match against Dortmund BVB will be a defining moment to turn things around for the team. "I think this is an absolute highlight in the Bundesliga, everyone is going to watch this game, we are all looking forward to it. I also feel that the team is ready and that's why we look very positively towards tomorrow."

The match will kick off Saturday at 17:30 GMT at the Allianz Arena in Munich
