Guardiola: Bayern lost control against Koln Despite winning 4-1 on Friday night, the coach was not entirely happy with his side’s performance as they almost let slip their lead in the Allianz Arena

Pep Guardiola has
criticised his team for
“losing control” in their
4-1 Bundesliga win over
Koln on Friday.
The league leaders were 2-0 up after 10
minutes thanks to goals from Bastian
Schweinsteiger and Franck Ribery before
Anthony Ujah pulled one back for the visitors
in first-half injury time.
Koln came close to equalising as they forced
Manuel Neuer into making some crucial saves
before Arjen Robben and Robert
Lewandowski scored to kill the game off.
Guardiola was happy to see his side pick up
the three points against a difficult opponent,
but felt his side should have been more
dominant throughout the encounter.
“I’m happy,” he told reporters after the
game. “We’ve beaten the second best away
team in the league and scored four goals,
which is very, very difficult against these
“We started well, but we lost control after a
while. Once Arjen had made it 3-1 it was a
completely different game again. We
recovered our dominance.
“But we won today because Manuel Neuer
made two outstanding saves.”
