Speaking to bundesliga.com after Thomas Müller's 79th-minute strike earned the Bavarian giants a 1-0 win at the Mercedes-Benz Arena, Boateng said, "Jupp Heynckes has this feeling for our players. Everybody in our team is happy with him. We all follow his direction, he talks a lot with us, he gives us a good feeling. We trust him and that's why we play like this."
