Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has heaped praises on Bundesliga teams after putting on solid performances in Europe following successes from all teams that qualified for this season’s campaign.
The Bundesliga Chief expressed his pride in the success that Bundesliga teams have had this season in Europe during an interview with Sky (via iMiaSanMia), citing Union Berlin, Freiburg, and Frankfurt as excellent examples.
When asked to share his thoughts on BVB and Frankfurt joining Bayern in the Champions League RO16, he said, “Of course that’s good. We can all be a bit proud of that. We have set an example in Europe. It’s nice to see so many German clubs progress in Europe”.
Bayern Munich was the big winner in sweeping through the group stage despite being paired against Inter and Barcelona winning all six games.
Bayern Munich will be joined by Borussia Dortmund and Eintracht Frankfurt in the Champions League knockout stages, while SC Freiburg (advanced) and Union Berlin (playoffs) are still alive in the Europa League. In addition to those team, Bayer Leverkusen will also take part in the next round of the Europa League.
