Thomas Müller addressed FC Bayern fans on Instagram after the clear defeat in Leverkusen.
He declares war.
Munich - Thomas Müller took to Instagram on Sunday evening (February 11th) and addressed the Munich fans with an emotional post after FC Bayern's bitter 3-0 defeat at Bayer Leverkusen.
FC Bayern: Thomas Müller addresses the fans on Instagram
“Yesterday’s game was an absolute nightmare for us!!
Congratulations to our opponents from Leverkusen – they have an incredible winning streak.
The fight for the title is not over yet,” wrote the world champion on the social network: “But first we have to do our things right.
The next chance and a very important game for us comes next Wednesday.
Let’s get back to it.”
Müller was referring to the first leg of the round of 16 in the Champions League at Lazio Rome on Wednesday (9 p.m., here in the live ticker).
After the defeat in Leverkusen, the pressure is growing on coach Thomas Tuchel, whose sacking some fans even called for at Säbener Straße, while a report brings José Mourinho into play as a possible successor.
FC Bayern: Thomas Müller quotes Olli Kahn after defeat in Leverkusen
Meanwhile, Müller had already turned himself in immediately after the debacle in the Rhineland.
In an interview with Sky, the German international made it clear and held his colleagues accountable.
Sharp criticism of the setting included.
“There are some symptoms that you can see on the pitch, so I'm pissed off.
Leverkusen deservedly won.
We can keep our analysis brief.
What I miss, which is why I say it publicly, from us players is that we show significantly better approaches in training because we are courageous and play football freely," said Müller and quoted his ex-boss: "That's what I miss: I can now quote Olli Kahn, partly the balls.”

Müller himself remained pale in Leverkusen, like most of his teammates.
This Bundesliga season, the 34-year-old from Upper Bavaria, who lives in Otterfing south of Munich, has seven assists in 19 appearances (as of February 11th).
But he has only scored one Bundesliga goal this season.
And: In the last six appearances he only managed one assist in the league.
Too little for your own needs.
In the Bundesliga, Munich (50 points) are now a full five points behind Bayer 04 (55).
FC Bayern urgently needs a win against Lazio on Wednesday.
Otherwise there is a real risk of discussions in the Isar metropolis.
The Romans won 3-1 at Cagliari Calcio on Saturday and are eighth in the Italian Serie A before the duel.
