Ahead of Bayern’s match up against Schalke 04 this weekend, the Royal Blue’s centre back has been speaking to the media at Bundesliga.com ahead of the game, and giving his opinions and insights onto the clash.
Unsurprisingly, the Schalke game has recognised that this will be a tough clash, not just for Bayern, but for both sides. Whilst Schalke recognise the quality that Bayern have, we can equally recognise that Shalke have one of the strongest sides in the Bundesliga, with some supreme talent in their ranks.
With that in mind, Kolasinac was very admirable of Bayern, and also stated how exciting it was to test himself against the best, saying how he was looking forward to giving his best shot alongside his team at the weekend:
We know that we’re taking on the strongest team in Germany, who right now are also amongst Europe’s elite.
“It’s always a special challenge to measure yourself up against teams like that and, despite our poor performance against Frankfurt last time out, we’re going to give everything we’ve got to have a good game in Munich.” Via bundesliga.com
And with many having been critical of Bayern of late, the Schalke man does not agree that Bayern are not the side that they once were – something that has been the opinion of many pundits and critics this season. Sead instead has argued that it is the improved competitiveness of the league in general which has made life for Bayern tougher, as follows:
Bayern have definitely not taken their foot off the pedal. I believe the level of the Bundesliga has continually improved in recent years and that several teams have closed the gap.
“Which ever way you look at it, the Bundesliga is one of the most successful and strongest leagues in the world.
“You can’t take any game lightly because every team has a chance of winning every game irrespective of where they are in the standings at the time. That is constantly making Bayern’s life more difficult.” Via bundesliga.com
The interview is quite extensive, and the Blue’s man goes in to quite a lot of detail on both his own experiences as a player and further opinions on Bayern Munich. To read the rest, you can check out the full article at bundesliga.com
