Bayern must ease pressure
24 Nov 2009 - 07:58:08
Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has admitted Bayern Munich need a "big result" to ease the pressure on the under-performing club and coach Louis van Gaal.
Bayern were held to a draw by table-toppers Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday to remain in a disappointing seventh place in the Bundesliga table.
In Europe they must win their two remaining group games against Maccabi Haifa and Juventus if they are to reach the last 16 of the Champions League at the expense of the Italian side.
"We're unhappy because none of us likes the situation in the league table," explained van Gaal.
"The fans don't like it, the coach doesn't like it, the team doesn't like it and neither do we, naturally enough.
"We need a big win to relieve the pressure.
"We need to work with the team and get things moving in a positive direction again. We'll do that and hope it works out."
