Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac has said that the Bavarians would look to hunt down the current league leaders Borussia Dortmund as the season progresses. The reigning Bundesliga champions have moved within three points of Die Schwarzgelben with a win against Hoffenheim in their last match and would look to topple them to take the leaders’ position.
Speaking to the media after their win, the Bayern manager said, “The first half was sensational. That was our ambition, that’s what we’re able to do. The result is good, we got off to a good start to the second half of the season and increased the pressure.”
He added, “We’re the hunters, we want to chase Dortmund. We want to chase and seal the championship title. The decisive thing is to be at the top at the end of the season.”
Bayern midfielder Leon Goretzka also resonated with his manager after the 3-1 win against Hoffenheim. The player said, “It was a superb performance in the first half. We were in control and deservedly took the lead. The second half was a bit hectic but the game would have been over if we had rounded off a counter. This way Hoffenheim bounced back, we had to give it everything. We wanted to get off to a good start to the second half of the season, and it was important to turn in a good display.”
He concluded, “Our goal is to clinch the championship title. We were six points short after the first half of the season. We’re the hunters now.”
