Neuer's comments in particular I think are pretty candid and spot on.
"We played a very good first half, but couldn't take the lead. The second half was a bit complicated. We scored the opener when Leipzig was on the rise. We reacted well after the equaliser. All in all, it was a deserved win. The win today is good for the players, it’s good for all of us at the club." [@SkySportDE ]
on Leroy Sané: "With his qualities, he's judged by goals and assists. It's a difficult phase for him at the moment with a lot of ball losses. He had to come off because he was in pain. He's not completely free at the moment and is biting his teeth"
on Kimmich at right-back: "Josh was the only one in the squad who played several times at right-back. He did well. The likelihood that we'll need him again there against Freiburg is very high"
on Tuchel's departure: "It's bitter that we couldn't build anything . I also feel sorry for the coaching staff. In the end we screwed up together. I think you don't always have to look at the teacher when you get bad grades" [@MartinVolkmar]
on how the team reacted to Tuchel's departure in the summer: "It casts a bad image on all of us, on the team, on the players, because we didn't manage to be successful with such a top coach. It is also our responsibility when a good coach is dismissed. We want to continue the path professionally until the end. There was no sign of [the decision] today in the speech or in the preparation for the game. He did everything extremely professionally and we were really prepared for the game." [Sky]
on why top coaches at FC Bayern have repeatedly failed recently: "It's difficult to say. There are different players in this team than before when things happened a bit on their own. Teams change and I believe that we haven't had the self-confidence recently to put on this shirt every time, go onto the pitch and beat teams. We have to work on getting that back."
"It was a win for all of us. We're all in the same boat. It wasn't an easy time for us, after three defeats in one week - especially against Leipzig, an opponent that can hurt you. We played better in the first half, but we weren't efficient enough. We totally dominated Leipzig in the first half. We didn't let them get a chance. Even though we were a bit lucky to get a late goal, we are happy that we won" [@SkySportDE]
"I think we played a good game today. From start to finish we were the team with the better chances. Especially in the first half we probably should have scored a couple. We played against a really good side. Of course we had to show a reaction after last week. It's really nice to score a couple of goals and help the team get the win"
"As a team we felt like we could create more chances with the players that we have and that's what we did today. Especially the first goal was nice - me and Jamal were working on that in training just yesterday. It's really pleasing it came off as it did. That's what we need. We need more connection among each other. Hopefully we can build on today" [@SkySports]
on Tuchel's departure in the summer: "The club made a decision. We players have to show our responsibility to the manager, our responsibility to the club, to give everything we have for the season. We knew as players we haven't been performing as well as we can. You can't just sit there and talk about it. You have to fight and work hard at every moment and that's what we did today"
On Tuchel: "It's disappointing. He brought me here, we have a good relationship. Regardless of that, it's a pity because he's a very good coach. We haven't done enough as a team in the past few weeks, the results don't lie. Now we have to finish the season as well as possible" [@kerry_hau]
on the title race: "We'll never give up."
On the team and Tuchel: "I wouldn’t say that the team is uncoachable. We reacted because we're not satisfied with the development. Of course Thomas is disappointed." [@georg_holzner]
"When FC Bayern lose three times in a row, we all have to question ourselves. That is not our ambition. We will draw the conclusions from it."
On the many coach dismissals in recent years: "The expectations are very high at FC Bayern. There's pressure on everyone, but in the end that is the formula for success at FC Bayern: we are never satisfied" [Sky]
on Tuchel's departure in the summer: "I'm very sorry. Thomas has invested a lot and put a lot of energy into it. We now all have to work together to ensure that we spend three more nice and successful months together."
On Xabi Alonso “That’s not a topic for us now.” [@kerry_hau]
on Alphonso Davies' comeback: "We hope he can resume team training or at least parts of it next week" [@julianbuhl]
on Tuchel: "We've seen in the past few games that things are not working. That's why we decided to go separate ways in the summer. The team is now just as responsible as the coaching staff." [@_kochmaximilian]
Thomas Tuchel has hinted that he would have liked to fulfill his contract. Was the decision to part ways in the summer really amicable and mutual?
" Thomas is, as you have also written or reported, someone who does not mince his words and says his opinion. If he hadn't been of the same opinion as us, we wouldn't have said together in a press release that we were parting ways amicably"
on Max Eberl's imminent appointment: "If things turn out the way we all think it will, we will have a new board member next week. More competence and quality in management can only be good. I believe we will achieve a lot together as a team" [@dpa]
