“Jupp effect” continues at fc bayern

The "jupp effect" also held in ancelotti style. Even without the glamour of the first two goal galas under returning coach heynckes, FC bayern munchen has caught up in the standings.

The five-point gap to BVB has shrunk to three goals ahead of the landmark duels with rb leipzig and top-ranked borussia dortmund. Soccer idol uwe seeler expects bavaria to go it alone in the bundesliga again soon thanks to coach-routineer heynckes.

"Now that jupp has brought them back up to speed, it could indeed happen again that they march through again. Bayern has such good players that winning the next title would be normal," said the honorary captain of the german national team after the 1-0 (0-0) win at hamburger SV. FCB head of defense mats hummels particularly emphasized the team spirit that the experienced triple winner coach of 2013 promptly and successfully awakened in the record champion after the separation from carlo ancelotti.

"It wasn’t so bad before, but there was room for improvement. I know it from my time at dortmund: the team spirit has to be fully there, then the successes will come," emphasized the national player. "There is a lot of traction in us now, last twice more than today. The coach is definitely good for us," hummels said, looking back on the three nil wins under heynckes against SC freiburg (5-0), celtic glasgow (3-0) and now at hsv.

The challenging program of the next 14 days in the cup and league against up-and-coming leipzig, in the champions league again against celtic and in the championship against recently weakening dortmunder is indeed extremely demanding. "But the self-confidence is there for us to go in with a positive attitude and be able to win the games."

But how did heynckes manage to flip the switch in the blink of an eye on munich, which had been so disappointing under ancelotti?? "I put in a lot of training incentives and said: we have to get the team back on track, play better soccer again with enthusiasm, spab and looseness," the coach reported. "We succeeded very well twice against freiburg and glasgow, here in hamburg, on the other hand, it was hard work," judged the 72-year-old.

He attributed the problems in the sold-out volksparkstadion against a defensively strong and combative HSV with a high level of pressing to the rotation in his team, which had been reshuffled in five positions. "We have four games ahead of us that will be tough," said the coach, explaining the changes, of which he is not a fan in this form. "I took a certain risk. Even though they are almost all experienced national players, harmony, homogeneity and today, in the first half, the rhythm of the game are suffering," explained heyncke.

The decisive advantage for the guests, who were only convincing after the break, came from the harsh but justifiable red against gideon jung, who did his job as a midfield interceptor against kingsley coman too literally after. Referee marco fritz sent off the HSV-six (40.) from the field, which gave the bavarians more space for their offensive actions.

Corentin tolisso (52.) scored his second goal of the season after thomas muller, who was replaced shortly afterwards by an injured player, had done the groundwork for the victory of the resurgent bavaria, who missed further chances and could not be sure of their third three-goal win under their new coach until the final whistle. "It wasn’t as easy as you read everywhere before, but these are the games you have to win…" Said heynckes. And probably meant: …When you want to win titles.
