FC Bayern München dropped their first league points of the season against 1. FC Köln, but Joshua Kimmich and the rest of the Bavarians proclaimed themselves satisfied with what was just an unlucky draw. bundesliga.com has all the best reaction from the Allianz Arena.
Joshua Kimmich (Bayern midfielder): “With a bit more luck we might have won this - we struck the woodwork a few times. But then again Cologne had a big chance late on, and we’ve had luck on our side at other times in the past few weeks like when we got the late goal to beat Hamburg.”
Carlo Ancelotti (Bayern coach): “We were good in the first hour but we weren’t able to keep the same intensity. In the second half we lost a bit of our composure and we conceded. We were a bit unlucky - we hit the post three times - but sometimes this happens in football."
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge (Bayern chairman): “I think we deserved a win today but in the end you just have to take a point home with you and be done with it. We’ve earned 16 out of an 18 possible points so far, so there’s no reason to complain really.
Peter Stöger (Köln coach): “Whenever you earn a point in Munich, a few things have gone well. It didn’t look like it in the first 45 minutes. We were a lot bolder in the second half, we passed the ball better, and that paid off. Of course we’re very pleased.”
Frederik Sörensen (Köln defender): “In the first half we were a little bit nervous - which we shouldn’t be. We had said at halftime that we wanted to come out and play football with them, and I think we did that very well.”
Timo Horn (Köln goalkeeper): “I was amazed at how little I had to do compared to what I thought I might be in for. Their goal come on their first clear-cut chance, which was disappointing, but the way we kept them at bay, even in the second half, showed how far we’ve come.”
