Say it. A trophy is a trophy. Nobody wants to lose trophies. Bayern Munich's loss to Wolfsburg in the DFL Supercup wasn't fun, but it must be remembered that this is still a "friendly" cup. Bayern's true focus begins next weekend in the first round of the DFB Pokal.

Congratulations to Wolfsburg The deserved the Supercup by scoring more penalties than Bayern.

Pep Guardiola

"Obviously the Bundesliga, cup and Champions League are more important but a trophy is a trophy. It's a shame. We did well and made chances. All my players battled away and covered lots of ground. We had plenty of chances. We did everything we could to win the match, but congratulations to Wolfsburg, who also did very well."

Philipp Lahm

"We missed our chance to wrap it up and we've been punished at the end."

Manuel Neuer

"We played well but unfortunately dropped our guard in the last minute. It's an infuriating defeat. We had Wolfsburg under control, we had more of the play and were the better team."

Arjen Robben

"I'm disappointed. That's football, it can all change in a minute. We have to look very critically at ourselves, because we should have wrapped it up earlier. We had chances and at 2-0 it would have been all over."

Jerome Boateng

"We shouldn't be conceding right at the end, but overall we can be pleased with our performance. We were the better team, we bossed the play, we had chances and should have killed the game. It's unfortunate and a shame, but I think we have plenty to build on."
