Bayern Munich coach Jurgen Klinsmann praised the spirit in the camp after his side bounced back from a Champions League humiliation with a 4-0 thrashing of Eintracht Frankfurt. Bayern had been humbled 4-0 by Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final, with the thrashing coming hard on the heels of last weekend's 5-1 Bundesliga thumping at the hands of title rivals Wolfsburg. But after coasting to victory over Eintracht on Saturday and easing the pressure on his shoulders, a relieved Klinsmann was clearly delighted. "This was a first-class performance and a first class reaction to the Barcelona debacle," he admitted. "It hurt a lot and we had to make it up to our fans. "It was basically done and dusted after an hour and it turned into a gorgeous spring day."
