Hansi Flick was “very distressed” by Bayern Munich’s shock DFB-Pokal loss to Holstein Kiel, but the head coach asked the German and European champions must move on.
DFB-Pokal holders Bayern sensationally crashed out, in the second round on Wednesday, shocked 6-5 on penalties after a 2-2 draw against second-tier Kiel after extra time.
On Wednesday, Hansi Flick commented on Bayern Munich’s surprise loss to second-tier opponents.
“It’s a shock of course. We’re very disappointed, we wanted to defend the treble. Taken altogether it was down to details, the team showed great spirit,” Flick said after the match according to the official website.
“We were dominant, which was our aim. It’s very annoying that we conceded the equaliser in the last second. We must congratulate Kiel, they made it a real cup fight, they were completely committed. We must put it behind us and improve.
“We must be more compact at the back. We must apply more pressure and be more solid when it comes to balls over the top.
“It’s surprising, that’s what the cup is like. Kiel defended well, their keeper turned in an outstanding performance. It just happens in penalty shoot-outs, I don’t blame Roca.”
