Thomas Muller is mindful of the crucial position that he and his teammates are in, playing in Germany with the return to action of the Bundesliga this weekend.
Muller is conscious that the way they handle this return will set a guiding example to the rest of the world on their own respective return to professional sports, reports Marca.
“A lot is being achieved to prevent infections.” Muller said after the game on Sunday. “Yet we can’t ignore that we are being monitored more rigorously than the whole of Germany and that our conduct needs to be exemplary.”
The player acknowledges that the nation is closely monitoring their every move.
Bayern Munich was triumphant on their debut, defeating Union Berlin 2-0, despite it not being their best play so far. Nevertheless, Bayern won and Muller agreed that the lack of supporters may have been a drawback to their hosts.
“If they were a goal down and their supporters had a corner that would have made a difference, we have to accept that.” Muller said, confessing that Bayern wasn’t at its peak.
