The first loss under Julian Nagelsmann is here, and it came in typical Bundesliga fashion. One team attacked, and the other parked the bus and tried to hurt Bayern Munich on the counter-attack — and it worked! After an astounding comeback, Eintracht Frankfurt managed to secure their first win of the season.

Bayern Munich’s vice-captain Thomas Muller was particularly annoyed after today’s loss. He told Tz that Bayern was better and deserved to win but lacked a proper finish.

“We are disappointed, angry, and annoyed — whatever you want to use. We had a lot of scoring chances the decisive centimeter has been missing. That we conceded the equalizer so quickly was very annoying. We were not effective at the back and in front. From what I’m feeling, we should have won,” Muller vented.

Muller was particularly unhappy with the wastefulness of Bayern’s players and thinks that Bayern should have secured the win early in the match.

“If we took a couple of our chances, we’d won 3-1 or 4-1, and everyone would be shouting super Bayern again. But now there’s no more Super Bayern, and we have to deal with that now,” he said.

In the end, Muller also said that Bayern was generally unlucky today and congratulated Kevin Trapp on his performance. He added that this setback won’t knock them out and that the team will surely learn from it.
