´That was our worst performance of the season´ – Kimmich slams Bayern after Bochum defeat

Joshua Kimmich slammed Bayern Munich’s performance during their 4-2 defeat by Bochum, describing it as their “worst of the season”.

The Bundesliga leaders came crashing back down to earth at Vonovia Ruhrstadion as they were beaten for only the second time in 32 meetings between the sides.

Bayern conceded four goals for the second time this season with Christopher Antwi-Adjei, Jurgen Locadia, Cristian Gamboa and Gerrit Holtmann all on target before half-time for the hosts.

Julian Nagelsmann’s side were also thrashed 5-0 by Borussia Monchengladbach in the DFB-Pokal in October.

And Kimmich questioned the mentality of his team-mates in a scathing post-match reflection.

“That was our worst performance of the season throughout the game,” he told Sky.

“We missed all the virtues. If something like this happens once in the season, then I say that it can happen.

“But this is not the first time this has happened to us this season.

“We have to be careful. We have to ask ourselves whether this is the mentality that FC Bayern embodies.”

Nagelsmann also bemoaned a “sluggish” display from his players but took full responsibility for the defeat.

“Both in victory and defeat, you sit together in the boat; I also told the guys,” the head coach added. 

“Of course, I also criticise myself if the idea didn’t work out very well.

“Bochum pressed well, but we played very slowly and sluggishly. Normally, I have to change a bit earlier in the first half. After the change of sides, it was a bit better.”
