Arjen Robben on Bayern's woes: "Things don't go wrong in a week"
Bayern Munich have gone three matches without a single victory but veteran winger Arjen Robben is not too concerned.
Arjen Robben insists Bayern Munich only need a victory to get back on track after the German giants surprisingly drew with Ajax in the Champions League. Bayern made a perfect start to the season, however, the Bavarians have now gone three matches without a win in all competitions after Mats Hummels' opener was cancelled out by Noussair Mazraoui last night.
But Robben remains calm, the veteran Dutchman telling reporters: "There is always something coming from outside. We have to be realistic and to analyse our situation properly. Obviously, we are not used to it and it is not our goal. But as I said, it's not possible that within a week, everything turns bad. But that's football, you need a victory to get back on track."
Discussing Bayern's slump, star goalkeeper Manuel Neuer tried to pinpoint where the club have gone wrong during the last three fixtures. "We were very confident and played good football, but not every game was perfect," Neuer said as he reflected on Bayern's form prior to the stuttering results. "We were cheered very early. We also knew that we should not lose the ground under our feet. But we never thought that we would just march through, because you can sometimes drop points against unpleasant opponents."
Bayern, who are one point adrift of Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund, play host to Borussia Mönchengladbach on Saturday.
