Heynckes pleased despite draw

Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes had no complaints with his side’s performance in their 1-1 draw with Borussia Moenchengladbach on Friday.

The visitors took a surprise lead at the Allianz Arena through Thorben Marx’s penalty in the first half, but Bayern rescued a point after the break when substitute Xherdan Shaqiri netted the equaliser on the hour mark.

Heynckes said the point was the least his side deserved from the contest, claiming that they performed ‘outstandingly well’ and were simply unfortunate not to capitalise on more of their chances.

“I am very happy, even though we only drew 1-1,” he told reporters. “We dictated the game for 90 minutes, especially in the second half. We played outstandingly well and did not give Borussia an opportunity to score.

“It was definitely not easy to defend against them, but I think that we deserved to win because of our second-half performance.”

Heynckes reserved special praise for Gladbach goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen, whom he branded as the man of the match in Bavaria, but reiterated that his team could not have done much more to claim the victory.

“Ter Stegen was the best player on the pitch, he was outstanding,” he said.

“We had a lot of chances, but we were not able to take them. We did not leak anything defensively. I can’t fault my team.”
