Flick: “99 percent will not be enough against Sevilla”

Hansi flick, Bayern Munich coach, appeared at the press conference prior to the clash against Sevilla FC for the European Super Cup. The Munich coach, who highlighted the work of Julen Lopetegui at the head of the Nervionense team, spoke about the following topics:

Bayern Shield / Flag

Seville: He was the deserved winner of the Europa League. It is a team that transmits a lot of maturity on the pitch, something that is owed to Lopetegui. They are also good with the ball at their feet and know how to put their opponents in trouble. I hope for a nice game, with a lot of intensity. It will be a top match.

Virus: I live in Munich, a city that also adds many cases. We come to play soccer. We are not the ones who make the decisions. Our goal is to win the Super Cup and we are aware that it is in our hands to achieve it. Of course, Sevilla have a great team thanks to a coach who has given them a lot of competitiveness. The clash will be interesting.

Lewandowski: I take it for granted that you can complete the pre-final session and be ready. The rest are also in full condition.

Javi martinez: It will depend on the party. He is still a Bayern player and I am happy to have him. He is a player who always gives everything. I read that I was already on my way to Bilbao and I was very surprised. It is one more option and I am happy.

Super Cup: The Champions League is the top competition. As for the Super Cup, we do not know very well if it would be the fourth title of last season or the first of the current one. To lift it, we will have to put all the meat on the grill. The 99 percent will not be enough against Sevilla. The two teams that made the most credit for being here face off. We play a title and we want to win it.

Manuel Neuer, Bayern captain:

Coronavirus: We have been having to adapt to these types of situations for a long time. Thursday will be no different. We are focused on the game and on Sevilla, a great team. We will accept the situation on the field and in the stands as it is.

Super Cup: It is a very special game. Those who have been at Bayern for the longest will remember the last Super Cup of 2013 against Chelsea, it was a game of maximum suspense. This time we face another champion. I think there are many teams that would like to be in our place. It is a very special cup.

Moment: We have had a fantastic few months. We are a team that is still hungry, with a lot of quality in its ranks and, also, with a great coach. We always maintained our motivation in each training session, even during the most difficult moments of the Pandemic, and we invested everything to win the Champions League and put the icing on this unusual season. We will fight the same for the Super Cup.

Fans: I understand that many stay at home. Everyone is free to decide what is best for him. We will not be angry with anyone who has chosen not to travel. On the contrary, we understand it perfectly.

Nomination for the best player in Europe: It is something very nice, especially for a goalkeeper like me. That Lewandowski is also among the three nominees is an extra reward for Bayern. I would be very excited if one of us ends up winning it.
