Heynckes hails Bayern depth

Bayern Munich head coach Jupp Heynckes has put his side’s 6-1 win over Hannover up as an example of the depth of his squad.

Heynckes rested several key players against Hannover ahead of their UEFA Champions League semi-final first leg against Barcelona on Tuesday with the likes of Bastian Schweinsteiger, Mario Mandzukic and Philipp Lahm allowed to put their feet up.

But with the likes of Anatoliy Tymoshchuk, Mario Gomez and Rafinha picking up rare starting appearances for Bayern, Heynckes team barely missed a beat as they destroyed 10th-placed Hannover.

“Basically, I want to say that tonight’s game has shown that I have no B team, but only an A team,” Heynckes said after the game.

“The manner of this win shows the depth we have in our squad and the desire everyone had to play.

“All of our players are able to play at a high level and have made an outstanding contribution to our team this season; that is why we have won the title.”

Mario Gomez and Claudio Pizarro both scored twice, while the latter also notched two assists.

Heynckes reserved special praise for Bayern’s first-half performance where they jumped out to a 3-0 lead.

“I think that our first-half performance was the main reason for this emphatic victory,” Heynckes said.

“We were very impressive and fairly clinical.”
