#UCLPostMatch: Ancelotti Calls His Bayern Team Toothless And Slow
Carlo Ancelotti has attacked his side and called them out for being slow and toothless in the 1-0 UCL loss to Atletico.
Bayern Munich were yet to record a loss this season before Wednesday. A lone Carrasco strike sealed the win for Atleti at Vicente Calderon.
The bundesliga champions were largely in control, but failed to create chances and got punished.
“We controlled the game, but the bottom line is that today we had no bite in the tackle, we weren’t determined enough. We lost too many balls and played too slow,” he said.
“It was a tough game, as we expected. We could have played better. We lost some balls and got hit on the counter.
“They scored and then I think we tried to get back into it but we were too slow, and that’s why I do not think we had too many chances to get back into it.
“Losing is always sad. You never want to lose. We need to evaluate the game, look at what we did well and did not do well and go forward. We are at the start of the season. We still have the chance to top the group and we will need to beat Atletico in the return game to do so.
“Against Atletico, you have to be faster and take your chances. It was not a good performance, but it was just a game. Next time, it will be better.”
