After what sounded like a nightmarish experience in being stranded on the tarmac in Berlin, Bayern Munich eventually made its way to Qatar to prepare for the Club World Cup.
The whole experience was detailed here (and if you know what is good for you, check out the comments from the BFW community’s collective travel woes) and it would be easy to think that a bunch of pampered professional athletes might be eager to gripe about what sounded like such a frustrating experience.
Bayern Munich president Herbert Hainer, however, told Bild that his squad was not about to let one little bump in the road affect the great journey that they are on:
President Herbert Hainer to @BILDamSONNTAG : „As I know our players, they will take this journey as a motivation. I heard the mood on board was good despite everything." #fcbayern #miasanlive— Tobi Altschäffl (@altobelli13) February 6, 2021
It might not sound like much, but having a good, positive attitude after an awful travel experience is absolutely a sign of a team with a strong focus on the task at hand. Bayern Munich seems ready to shake off that time on the tarmac and get down to business.
