Guardiola: 'In the end we got the goals'

Munich - There was plenty to talk about yet again in the Bundesliga on Matchday 24 with turnaround victories, penalty saves - and misses - and another fair share of goals, joy and disappointment. lets the coaches give their version of events...
VfL Wolfsburg 1-6 FC Bayern MünchenDieter Hecking (Wolfsburg): We played fantastic football for 50 to 60 minutes. We had Bayern wobbling, but as soon as it was 3-1, we collapsed and that was that. The players suddenly realised how good the opposition really were, and in the end the fight we showed wasn't enough.

Pep Guardiola (Bayern): We weren't as dominant as we have been in recent weeks. Wolfsburg were very well organised and really aggressive. We had problems with that in the first half and they played better than us in the first 15 minutes of the second half as well. In the end, though, we got the goals.
SC Freiburg 0-1 Borussia DortmundChristian Streich (Freiburg): All things considered, we put in a good performance and lost 1-0. It's important that we take the positives from how we played regardless of the result. We didn't get the final ball right and didn't threaten their goal enough.

Jürgen Klopp (Dortmund): It was a tough game for us today for a lot of reasons, and I can understand how anybody who has a soft spot for Freiburg is disappointed. We were up against determined opposition who are stuck in a relegation battle but can still play some really good football. We had to work hard and we did. It was a lucky win but a deserved one in the end.
1. FSV Mainz 05 1-1 Hertha BerlinThomas Tuchel (Mainz): We dominated the first half but just lacked that cutting edge in front of goal to take the lead. I'm really only unhappy with the first five or six minutes of the second half and with the lethargy we showed.

Jos Luhukay (Hertha Berlin): I'm pleased that we can go back to Berlin with a point. We rode our luck the first half but we showed what we're capable of in the second 45 minutes. I'm quite satisfied with the result.
FC Schalke 04 4-0 1899 HoffenheimJens Keller (Schalke): The lads have had to cope with a bit of stick recently and rightly so. They said that they wanted to bounce back and they did that impressively. The team showed exactly the reaction that they expected and what we expect from them.

Markus Gisdol (Hoffenheim): In the first half an hour, we held our own well and you could even argue we were the better team, but we still found ourselves 2-0 down. Schalke took their chances clinically, we didn't. After that we lost our way and they showed the quality they have in their attack.
Hannover 96 1-1 Bayer 04 LeverkusenTayfun Korkut (Hannover): I'm annoyed with the result. We hardly gave them an inch, yet we've still not won the game. What was important to me was that the team showed a reaction and defended well, but we've got to reward ourselves better in future.

Sami Hyypiä (Leverkusen): I'm happy with this battling performance, although technically we were not great. Hannover had the better chances, so we'll take the point. And when you've got a goalkeeper like Bernd Leno in your team, you can't not be happy.
1. FC Nürnberg 0-2 SV Werder BremenGertjan Verbeek (Nürnberg): We played well, but we've lost the game. We got everything right up to the penalty area but we didn't threaten the goal enough. I enjoy seeing my team playing like this, but I don't enjoy losing. I suppose you can't have everything.

Robin Dutt (Bremen): It was important that we built on the Hamburg game. This was a very important win today. I've also got to take my hat off to Aaron Hunt [who convinced the referee to overturn a penalty decision].
