“Heynckes united Bayern”, Muller

After a troubled start to the season saw Carlo Ancelotti lose his job, the forward believes his successor has excelled in restoring unity to the team.

Bayern Munich star Thomas Muller has hailed Jupp Heynckes for bringing the Bundesliga giants together after a difficult start to the season.

The veteran coach was brought back for a third spell at the club after Carlo Ancelotti was sacked in September.

Ancelotti’s exit was preceded by widespread reports of unrest inside the Bavarians’ ranks, and Muller affirms that his successor has brought the players closer together.

Perhaps Bayern’s best performance so far this season came in the Champions League, where they inflicted a first and only group stage defeat on Paris Saint-Germain by winning 3-1.

The victory raised spirits after losing the corresponding fixture in Paris 3-0, but Muller insists that neither result should be over-analysed – least of all that ‘dominant’ win in the Allianz Arena.
