How does a team shake off a massive disappointment on a Wednesday and quickly turn around for an incredibly difficult away match against its archrival on Saturday?
According to Bayern Munich coach Thomas Tuchel, you need a short memory and hope that there are no long-lasting effects.
“We can judge that later. We decide whether it affects us or not. At the moment we’re extremely disappointed — me, all of us. We have to gather all our strength now and make up for it on Saturday,” Tuchel told Sky (as captured by @iMiaSanMia).
How the team responds to this disappointment could go a long way to determining whether or not Tuchel has a proper handle on this group. A poor showing on the road in Der Klassiker could escalate any existing doubt about the coach that might already exist within the club.
As always, we appreciate all the support.
