Ancelotti makes confessions after Wolfsburg draw

German Bundesliga By: Ayodeji Tunde | 23/09/2017



Bayern Munich coach Carlo Ancelotti has made some confessions on what went wrong with his team when they threw away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Wolfsburg at the Allianz Arena on Friday.


Among other things, Ancelotti cited his side's lack of intensity and not being compact enough as some of their faults in Friday's unexpected stalemate.

"We did not play as we wanted," he said. "We were slow, without intensity and not compact enough.
 
"We did not have the game under control as usual, so the game went like this. Sven made a mistake, but the result is that we did not play well as a team."

Friday's game marked Wolfsburg's second under the guidance of Martin Schmidt following the sacking of Andries Jonker this week. 

 And the new man explained that the stirring second-half comeback was thanks to the values instilled in the team by Jonker. 

 Schmidt said: "If you are down to Bayern 2-0 and have a point at the end, you can drive home contentedly.
 
"The point, the performance, the passion and the mentality, which we showed in the second half, belong to my predecessor, Andries Jonker."
