Frankfurt - 's satiated smile was a sight to behold following his hat-trick heroics against Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday afternoon.
FC Bayern München
rounds up the immediate post-match reaction to the 23-time Bundesliga champions'
in Germany's financial capital...
We're playing really well. We know exactly what we have to do, no matter what team we put on the pitch. We've got great players to come on from the bench if things aren’t quite going to plan. Frankfurt played really aggressively today - it made a nice change not to be up against a 15-man defence and the away team bus! We did manage to create space though and we made the most of our chances. It's a nice feeling and the most important thing is that we won and we've had a successful period in between international breaks.
We know how we can play football and I think we put in another good display today. It was tough, Frankfurt put plenty of effort in, they ran a lot. The key to winning was imposing our style of play. We didn't hit too many long balls, played it out of defence well and created plenty going forward. It's great for us that Thomas [Müller] got the hat-trick, but everyone worked hard going forward.
Eintracht provided stiff resistance and put a lot of pressure on us to stop us building out from the back. We pulled away once they tired. Thomas [Müller] was ice-cold in front of goal today.
Once we get into our stride, we're hard to stop.
It's always great to play against Bayern. The fans were fantastic today and I thought we actually did quite well, so it's a shame that we ended up on the wrong side of such a heavy loss.
They were more clinical today than we were. We made a few mistakes and they're so quick going forward. We were aggressive going forward, but they took their chances well. We've got really good fans and they recognised that we gave our best out there. In our next two games [against Borussia Dortmund and Borussia Mönchengladbach] we have to play like we did today and be aggressive going forward, press high and try to take our chances. We'll keep fighting to try to win.
We wanted to attack Bayern today and took plenty of risks. We came close to Manuel Neuer's goal on several occasions, but he's so good and so calm on the ball that we didn't quite manage to get the goal we deserved today.
