Nagelsmann applauds Choupo-Moting starring position in historic 12-0 romp for Bayern Munich in DFB-Pokal



The Cameroon international was involved in seven goals when Bayern achieved their biggest lead this century

Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann praised the work of Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting in Bayern Munich’s biggest win since 1997, when Bayern beat Bremer SV 12-0 in the DFB Cup on Wednesday.

Choupo-Moting contributed to seven goals, scored four goals and provided three assists, and scored a hat trick in just 27 minutes.

The Cameroonian international plays a limited role in the Bundesliga as a side option for Robert Lewandowski, and Nagelsmann was pleased that the striker “stepped on the gas” on the occasion.

What was said

“Choupo did very well and defended very well,” Nagelsmann told reporters. “I commend him for defending his status so well. Regardless of whether you get a lot of playing time or not, you have to accelerate.

“There were a lot of nice combinations and good things. It was a nice evening. It was a lot of fun that we clearly won the game, perfect things. ”

Regarding the overall performance, the head coach said: “It was to be expected that the game would be one-sided. You did well in the first six minutes and were brave.

“We didn’t talk about a result, it was about a certain seriousness. At halftime we said that we wanted to use the game to counter-press. We did a great job in the second half. You have to put it down to the team. “

Bavaria’s historic victory

Bayern achieved the biggest advantage in all competitions since 1997 with a 16-1 win against DJK Waldberg in the DFB Cup.

Outside of the Waldberg result, Bayern had never won with at least 12 goals since their promotion to the Bundesliga in 1965.
