Ancelotti lauds Muller after Bayern win

3 December 2016 04:31

Bayern Munich head coach Carlo Ancelotti heaped praise on versatile forward Thomas Muller for his intelligent performance against Mainz on Friday.

Ancelotti singled out Muller after he helped four-time defending Bundesliga champions Bayern to a come-from-behind 3-1 win at Mainz.

Germany international Muller set up Arjen Robben for Bayern’s second goal of the night as Ancelotti’s men moved level atop the table with RB Leipzig due to play Schalke on Saturday.

“Muller played well,” Ancelotti told reporters. “I’ve always said he’s a very intelligent player, who can play in any number of number of positions up front.

“Muller changed his position, but I am happy with all the forwards, in the first half, they showed good combinations together.

“It was a difficult game, but it’s a good result. It was important to win here, we played against a difficult team and it’s always hard to win in Mainz.”

Bayern surprisingly fell behind to Jhon Cordoba’s fourth-minute opener away from home.

But Robert Lewandowski’s brace and a goal from Robben in his 150th Bundesliga appearance inspired Bayern.

“It was a tough game, but we’ve got a good result out of it, and that was really important for us,” Ancelotti continued.

“We did well going forward in the first half, then Mainz upped the pressure in the second half and it got more difficult.”
