Müller after third straight draw: "I'm angry with us."

By Peter Vice   @ViceytheSS

For whatever it's worth at this stage of the season, Germany's reigning ten-times champion are off to their worst league start in twelve years. 

Thomas Müller - this week deployed by Julian Nagelsmann as a lead striker - found himself in no mood to be playful this week.

Germany's record champions remain undefeated through six matchdays. After drawing 1-1 against Gladbach in round four and also splitting the difference 1-1 with Union Berlin in round five, however, the mighty Bavarians have dropped points for the third consecutive week. Not since the 2010/11 campaign under Louis van Gaal have the FCB taken so few point from six rounds.


Team talisman Thomas Müller - famously benched by head-coach Julian Nagelsmann against Union Berlin last week - actually served as the lead striker this week ahead of Jamal Musiala, Mathys Tel, and Serge Gnabry. Much more involved in the game this time, the 32-year-old basically gave the inverse of his post match-interview from seven days ago.

"Today, I'm angry at us for the first time," Müller told the Sky mics "I think we have to understand that if we want to win every game, and that is our ambition, you have to finishes it out and remain gallant until the very end."

Müller's trainer also lamented the ability of the team to close the game out.

"We got a deserved lead and had to score the second goal," the 35-year-old commented, "In the second half, we had three huge chances where you definitely had to score the third goal. Then the game would have been over. The opponent thinks they can still do it and they could. There was a justified penalty and we only drew 2-2."
