Mr. Lahm, on Saturday you are off to Frankfurt. It is also the battle Christoph Daum vs Hoeness Explosive?
Lahm: "It does not matter to us. It's about three points. For the club it is very important that we are among top three. This is our minimum goal and it is bad enough that we are in this situation.
Jupp Heynckes, the seventh Bayern coach in the last seven years. Problematic?
Lahm : "In Bayern success is everything. And if it is missing, there is a reaction."
What is better on the field under Jonker?
Lahm: "There is more focus on defense. That is where we have gone wrong. We used our offensive abilities to get over our defensive frailties. Our options were limited, the balance was missing.
Did you not say this to the previous coach?
Lahm: Yes, we did. I also think it is good that a coach believes in his philosophy, but the players have to believe in it too.
Van Gaal and Kilnsmann were bought to revolutionize the club. What happened?Lahm: "Our board members and the board have a very good feel for the team and the club. I say: the club must have a phiolosophy ! I think the club has one. And the coach should somehow preserve it. He can change his system, of course, but the club must be in the foreground. "
So with Heynckes everything is back to normal
Lahm: "With Heynckes you have someone who already knows the club. He is playing attractive football and is successful. Hopefully, we can find the right mix in our offense and defense.
Did Van Gaal also failed on the interpersonal level?
Lahm: "I had no problems. But he is a person who is very authoritarian and great has great charisma. "
Too Charismatic for a club that already has enough charisma?
Lahm: "This could be true."
Manuel Neuer from Schalke announced his departure yesterday.
Lahm: "If other countries are writing about what a sensational goalkeeper he is and clubs are interested in him, it's quite normal for the FC Bayern as a top club to be interested in him too. He is a super goalkeeper. "
If Bayern should buy a right-back, you will be moved to the left.
Lahm: "I would have no problem."
