Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Mueller are due to miss out Bayern Munich’s upcoming game against Borussia Monchengladbach.
The star duo picked up yellow cards in the 4-2 victory over Bayer Leverkusen
“It’s annoying but we cannot change it and have to accept the situation,” he said. “You are emotional on the pitch, but I spoke to the referee Manuel Grafe. He said that Lewandowski was hitting the opponent and that’s why he saw the yellow card. I didn’t see it so I cannot really comment.
“Thomas was blocking the ball when they had free-kick, so the yellow card was okay. It is what it is. We accept it. We will have two other players. This is also good sometimes, but it’s important that both can play 90 minutes against Eintracht Frankfurt [in the DFB-Pokal] on Wednesday. Then we try to prepare ourselves well for the game against Gladbach.”
“We are knocking on wood [hoping Goretzka remains fit] and hope he continues like that,” Flick said. “Of course, how we fought back was also due to the intensive pressing – we were more aggressive and had good ball possessions.
“Leon was directly involved in those moments and had a big influence on the first two goals. He showed exactly what you need as a team when you still have to find your way to the game. He did that great. Regarding his physical condition, he has a very strong role on the pitch and this helps us a lot.”
